Albany Doors is proud to design high speed industrial doors that help our customers meet the necessary standards to be LEED certified. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally-recognized certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to encourage environmentally friendly, energy-efficient building processes. Through third-party verification, buildings are awarded points based on a variety of factors ranging from material & resource selection to innovation in design. LEED certified buildings enjoy lower operating and construction costs. During construction, seeking LEED certification may make permitting faster due to LEED’s reliable verification of factors that exceed building code-requirements. What’s more, LEED certified buildings may qualify for tax rebates and zoning allowances.
Our high speed doors are equipped with the green features that support LEED’s essential requirements for energy efficiency. Large buildings and warehouses require a lot of energy, mostly for heating, but much of that energy is often wasted. All of our doors boast incredibly high opening and closing speeds, and have double-seal protection that prevents air leakage and limits air infiltration to reduce energy costs. Try our Value Calculation Tool to see just how much an Albany Door can save you in energy expenditures.
Individually, each high speed door has unique design features that offer additional energy reduction and meet other LEED criteria, from improved indoor environmental quality to state-of-the-art designs that enhance building performance. Our MCC VectorControl door controller monitors electrical currents and will only use the energy needed for optimal drive performance. The optional AirFlow system for our ThermaFreeze cold storage doors is a low voltage, energy saving, room temperature airflow system that reduces ice build-up in cold storage facilities. Our Therma door panels are made of our heavy-duty ClimatexTM material that maintains strict climate control for food & beverage facilities. For automotive distributors or secure government facilities, our brand-new UltraSecure Vision doors are made of clear polycarbonate glass providing natural daylight that creates a high-quality environment and serves as a renewable energy source. Whatever your needs may be, Albany has a high speed door that is designed and constructed with innovation, energy-efficiency, and the requirements of the LEED system in mind.
