Doors Earn GREENGUARD Certification
Special-Lite, a Decatur, Mich.-based manufacturer of entrance systems, recently
announced that the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) awarded the company
the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification for its entrance systems.
According to Special-Lite, the award makes the company the first line of commercial
door and frame products to meet the GREENGUARD standards for low-emitting products.
The GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® Special-Lite doors and frames
were tested to GEI's testing procedures and will continue to be monitored for
"We are proud to have earned GREENGUARD Certification for our door products,"
said Dan Depta, Special-Lite manager of marketing. "Exterior doors, though
they may not immediately come to mind when considering indoor air quality, nonetheless
play a role in the quality of indoor air, since one side of every exterior door
is inside the building. The corrosion resistance and durability of our doors with
fiberglass reinforced polyester (FRP) skins also make them ideal in pool areas,
locker rooms, showers and boiler room, which are clearly interior locations."
