First Industry-Wide Environmental Product Declarations Contribute to LEED v4
June 14, 2018 ─ The Steel Door Institute and its members have completed the first industry-wide, LEED-compliant Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for steel doors. This was achieved by undergoing a “cradle-to-gate” assessment for two products: heavy duty flush panel steel doors made with a polystyrene core and 5-3/4” 16-gauge steel prime painted door frames.
Now, these steel doors and frames can contribute toward credit in the LEED v4 Materials and Resources category, “Building Product Disclosures and Optimization”.
