Doors help today’s green buildings increase energy and resource efficiency as well as create safer and healthier work places. In this one-hour live webinar we will review the inherently sustainable attributes of doors. Environmental responsibility goes far beyond the mere selection of wood doors for a project. We will discuss how a door manufacturer can embrace and incorporate sustainability and environmental responsibility into daily operations and processes.
We will review a variety of green building codes and standards and what to look for when specifying architectural doors, including certifications for improved indoor air quality. In addition, a variety of door options will be examined, from surface and finish characteristics to core construction and specialty selections. We will conclude the hour with a 10-minute question and answer session.
