Block thermal transmission with doorway products from ASSA ABLOY Group brands

Improve energy efficiency and building envelope performance with doors and hardware that reduce thermal transmission and thwart heat/cold exchange.

According to the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), in the United States alone, buildings account for:

  • 72% of electricity consumption
  • 39% of energy use
  • 38% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions

In addition, 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.
