Clopay Building Products announced its Models 902 and 903 full-vision doors and doors with full-vision sections qualify for Daylight and Views LEED credits under the Indoor Environmental Quality category.
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 and natural resources, and create less waste in the construction and operation of buildings.
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.
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.
Clopay Building Products is a manufacturer of residential garage doors and a supplier of commercial overhead sectional and rolling-steel doors. The company has two manufacturing facilities and 51 distribution centers across the U.S. and Canada.
