High R-Value Polyurethane Insulated Doors- Maximum energy efficiency with R-Values up to 19.40 make these doors a great LEED product.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Insulated Doors- All of Amarr’s steel sectional doors have an insulated option. Green builders can confidently add EPS insulation to even Extra Heavy-Duty single layer steel doors if the application requires it.

Aluminum Full View Doors- Provide maximum natural light and outdoor visibility.  This reduces electrical light requirements while enhancing indoor environmental quality. Multiple glazing options including insulated, low-E, obscure, and tinted glass are available, allowing green builders to be truly innovative with their designs.

Strategic Manufacturing and Distribution Locations- Amarr commercial products are manufactured primarily in Kansas, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, and Arizona. We also have over 70 distribution locations so we can maximize distribution efficiency and minimize the fossil fuel impact on the environment.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a “green” building certification system. LEED was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED uses a rating systems that recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance to promote sustainable building and development practices for both commercial and residential design and construction.

LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in key areas:

     • Sustainable Sites
     • Water Efficiency
     • Energy & Atmosphere
     • Materials & Resources
     • Indoor Environmental Quality
     • Locations & Linkages
     • Awareness & Education
     • Innovation in Design
     • Regional Priority
