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.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Examine the attributes of an environmentally responsible door manufacturer
  2. Describe how architectural doors can meet green building codes, standards, and rating systems
  3. Discuss product transparency documentation used to specify environmentally friendly doors
  4. Analyze surfaces, finishes, cores, and specialty options to consider when specifying sustainably created and sourced doors
