Ceco & LEED

Ceco steel doors and frames are made from up to 68.9% recycled steel, (see LEED Contribution Statement right) much of which comes from old cars. We give scrap metal new life as high quality doors and frames. In fact we can produce 20 doors from the steel scrapped from one car!

Not only does recycling steel clean up the environment, it helps keep our natural resources from being depleted.

226 billion BTU’s were conserved in one year by the usage of Ceco doors and frames which is equivalent to powering 7,500 homes for a year! In addition to conserving energy by the materials we use to make our products Ceco Door also uses recycled materials in our product packaging.

In one year alone by using 100% recycled cardboard packaging Ceco Door has:

  • Saved 7,973 trees
  • Reduced local landfills by 640 cubic yards
  • Reduced waste water usage by 1,160,775 gallons
  • Saved 697,872 kWh of energy
  • Saved 253 tons of C02 emissions

Plus, Ceco doors and frames are sustainable with windstorm-certification standards for strength and durability plus 10 year warranties on our Maxium products. Our factory processes also help keep the environment clean by using low energy lighting  and reducing packaging.

Ceco uses environmentally-sound practices in the manufacturing and shipping of our hollow metal doors and frames. Let us help as you strive to design "Green" buildings that are safe, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing.

Applicable LEED Credits:

Energy & Atmosphere (EA) Prerequisite 2 - Minimum Energy Performance

Establish the minimum level of energy efficiency for the proposed building and systems to reduce environmental and economic impacts associated with excessive energy use. ASSA ABLOY Solutions can offer customers exterior door openings that save 10% or more in improved energy efficiency.

Materials & Resources (MR) Credit 1.2 - Building Reuse - Maintain Existing Interior Non-Structural Elements

Extend the lifecycle of existing building stock, conserve resources, retain cultural resources, reduce waste and reduce environmental impacts of new buildings as they relate to materials manufacturing and transport. The longevity and durability of openings created with products from ASSA ABLOY Group brands should allow re-use on LEED projects and help in the attainment of this credit.

Materials & Resources (MR) Credit 4 - Recycled Content

Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials. Use materials with recycled content such that the sum of post consumer recycled content plus 1/2 of the preconsumer content constitutes at least 10% or 20%, based on cost, of the total value of the materials in the project. The recycled content value of a material assembly is determined by weight. The recycled fraction of the assembly is then multiplied by the cost of assembly to determine the recycled content value. Almost all products from ASSA ABLOY Group brands contain recycled content and contribute toward this credit.

Materials & Resources (MR) Credit 5 - Regional Material

Increase demand for building materials and products that are extracted and manufactured within the region, thereby supporting the use of indigenous resources and reducing the environmental impacts resulting from transportation. Use building materials or products that have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10% or 20%, based on cost, of the total materials value. Manufacturing facilities for ASSA ABLOY Group brands are located throughout North America and can assist your projects in earning this credit.

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Credit 4.1 & 4.2 - Low-Emitting Materials: Adhesives & Sealants, Paints & Coatings

Reduce the quantity of indoor air contaminants that are odorous, irritating and/or harmful to the comfort and well-being of installers and occupants. This credit only applies to materials applied within the weatherproofing system. ASSA ABLOY Group brands, however, offer solutions including pre-finished door openings and pre-installed glazing. This allows LEED projects to avoid applying materials onsite.

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Credit 8.1 & 8.2 - Daylights & Views

Provide building occupants with a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors through the introduction of daylight and views into the regularly occupied areas of the building. Adding glazing and sidelights to openings built with products from ASSA ABLOY Group brands will assist projects in achieving this LEED credit.

LEED for Schools Specific Credits

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Credit 9- Enhanced Acoustical Performance

Provide classrooms that facilitates better teacher-to-student and student-to-student communications through effective acoustical design. Design the building shell, classroom partitions and other core learning space partitions to meet the Sound Transmission Class (STC) requirements of ANSI Standard S12.60-2002, Acoustical Performance Criteria, Design Requirements and Guidelines for Schools, except windows, which must meet an STC rating of at least 35. ASSA ABLOY offers a wide range of STC door solutions that meet ANSI Standard S12.20-2002 and can help LEED projects gain credit for Enhanced Acoustical Performance.
