Ceco Door exhibited at the U.S. ARMY Net-Zero Energy Installations Conference, January 18-20. During the conference, representatives from 18 installations briefed their progress in decreasing energy use, reducing their use of water, and eliminating waste sent to landfills.
At the ASSA ABLOY booth Ceco Door showcased energy efficient openings that improve building envelope thermal performance including the Trio-E™ door, which meets GREENGUARD purchasing standards for many military departments plus LEED, ASHRAE 189 and the new UL Environment UL ISR 102 standard.
"Insulating the building envelope is the low hanging fruit of reaching Net Zero Energy goals," said Dan Madrid from Insolutions LLC, also exhibiting at the conference. Insolutions uses the Ceco's Trio-E door to help their thermal envelopes achieve over 3 times the energy savings of traditional construction.
Approximately 40% of air infiltration comes from the building envelope. Although doors account for a tiny percentage of the overall surface area of the building envelope, they are responsible for 11% of air infiltration. This source of energy waste can be easily eliminated with the proper selection of doors and hardware.
