Reduce Energy Costs with Amarr LEED Certified Commercial Doors

Posted On: January 12, 2016 in Commercial Doors

Green building has been a buzzword lately, but the benefits of incorporating “green” elements into warehouse facilities go far beyond environmental conservation. For commercial buildings, choosing to invest in green building elements will increase energy efficiency and save money.

In warehouses, frequently used doors can drastically effect the internal environment and make it difficult to regulate proper temperature, pressure and visibility. The more doors, particularly external doors, in the facility, the more energy is wasted. Paying special attention to doorways when building or retrofitting a warehouse (or even when evaluating an existing space for potential cost savings) can highlight ways for the business to save money while also becoming more green.

For buildings looking to get their LEED certification, Amarr offers a full line of LEED certified commercial garage doors and hardware to meet even the strictest requirements for green building. The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifications are guidelines to help builders implement practical “green” solutions for building design, construction, operations and maintenance. These guidelines also have a measurable return on investment (ROI). With LEED elements incorporated into your operational infrastructure, your industrial facilities are set up for continual cost savings.

Even existing buildings can adopt LEED elements to help with energy efficiency, particularly around high traffic and energy-waste areas. Replacing old doors with LEED certified options can help companies minimize these issues and ultimately reduce energy waste with a quick, simple change that has little impact on productivity.

Amarr designs all its doors with industry standards in mind and tests them in a state-of-the-art facility to ensure quality. Amarr’s LEED garage doors come in a variety of options to suit every business need, including Sectional Steel Doors, Aluminum Full View Doors, Rolling Steel Doors and Rolling Sheet Doors. Insulation options and full view and tinted exterior doors help businesses reduce heating, cooling and energy costs by minimizing temperature loss via doors and allowing natural sunlight in whenever possible. These door designs provide companies with options while still maintaining LEED integrity.

Whether you’re building a new LEED facility or simply want to reduce operating costs, Amarr’s LEED certified garage doors have helped warehouses and commercial buildings across the country increase energy efficiency in a measureable way.
