Ceco & LEED
Ceco steel doors and frames are made from up to 68.9% recycled steel, (see LEED Contribution Statement right) much of which comes from old cars. We give scrap metal new life as high quality doors and frames. In fact we can produce 20 doors from the steel scrapped from one car!
Not only does recycling steel clean up the environment, it helps keep our natural resources from being depleted.
226 billion BTU's were conserved in one year by the usage of Ceco doors and frames which is equivalent to powering 7,500 homes for a year! In addition to conserving energy by the materials we use to make our products Ceco Door also uses recycled materials in our product packaging.
In one year alone by using 100% recycled cardboard packaging Ceco Door has:
Saved 7,973 trees
Reduced local landfills by 640 cubic yards
Reduced waste water usage by 1,160,775 gallons
Saved 697,872 kWh of energy
Saved 253 tons of C02 emissions
Plus, Ceco doors and frames are sustainable with windstorm-certification standards for strength and durability plus 10 year warranties on our Maxium products. Our factory processes also help keep the environment clean by using low energy lighting and reducing packaging.
Ceco uses environmentally-sound practices in the manufacturing and shipping of our hollow metal doors and frames. Let us help as you strive to design "Green" buildings that are safe, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing.
