Clopay® Commercial Full Vision Doors Qualify for LEED Credits
Cincinnati, OH -- February 19, 2013
Clopay Commercial Products Group today announced that its Models 902 and 903 full vision doors, and doors with full vision sections qualify for both Daylight and Views LEED credits under the Indoor Environmental Quality category.
The LEED Daylight credit applies to glazing materials that allow natural light to enter "regularly occupied spaces" of a newly constructed or existing building. The Views credit applies to glazing materials that allow building occupants to have a direct line of sight to the outdoors. Frosted or obscure glazing does not qualify.
Documents required by the building contractor to complete LEED certification have been updated to reflect this change and are available on the Clopay dealer portal at http://www.clopaydealer.com.
Clopay sectional garage doors also contain pre- and post-consumer recycled content, which contribute toward LEED Material and Resource Credit numbers 4 and 5.
Submission letters documenting the percentage of recycled content used in specific Clopay commercial door models, along with information on the location of the manufacturing facility in relation to the job site, and a calculator are also available on the Clopay dealer portal.
LEED information for Clopay rolling steel doors is contained on the shop drawings for those products and is available upon request.
The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is a third party certification program developed and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. The goal is to use less energy, water, natural resources, and create less waste in the construction and operation of buildings.
Clopay fully supports green building initiatives through its product design and manufacturing processes. For more information, contact Clopay's Commercial Information Assistance team at 800-526-4301.
