Trio-E door reflects commitment to sustainability


ASSA ABLOY has received a number of sustainability certifications for its Trio-E energy-efficient, hollow metal door, which is sold under the Group’s Ceco Door, CURRIES, Fleming and Security Metal Products brands.

The Trio-E door – for which ASSA ABLOY has been granted patents in both the US and Canada – is ideal for exterior commercial applications where factors such as sustainability, strength and aesthetics all play a role. Utilizing thermal break or kerf frames and PEMKO thermal barrier saddles, the Trio-E door offers the lowest heat transference while maintaining the strength to withstand pressure of up to 100 pounds per square foot. The door is manufactured without any visible weld marks, thereby achieving an aesthetically pleasing and energy-efficient opening.

Details about the manufacture of the Trio-E door are declared voluntarily as part of both the Health Product Declaration Collaborative and Declare programs. Additionally, Trio-E is GREENGUARD Gold certified – which means that it is suitable for use in environments such as schools and health-care facilities – and is referenced by The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System. An Environmental Product Declaration in accordance with ISO standards will be completed for Trio-E this year as part of a global ASSA ABLOY initiative to communicate the environmental performance of its products. All of these green credentials are achieved at no additional cost to the consumer.

To round out these initiatives, the ASSA ABLOY Door Group has also launched a Product End of Life Recycling Program for steel doors and frames. This free program provides for recycling and/or disposal of door and frame products that have reached the end of their life cycle and are out of warranty.
