EPD seal for multi-purpose doors

Teckentrup doors are now certified by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). The certificate includes all steel multi-purpose doors; from smoke-proof and fire-resistant doors to burglar resistant doors.

The EPD certificate names all relevant information for the life cycle and life cycle assessment using an integrated approach – from raw material extraction to production, product assembly and usage, through to final disposal. Certified products can be compared with others much more easily. EPDs are already required  for some tenders today. However, they will take on increasing importance in the future. Environmental product declarations of components according to ISO 14025 and prEN 15804 allow a clear evaluation of the entire building. This is particularly relevant  in those projects where a predicate according to DGNB/BNB is sought. EPD data is already available in many planning software programmes, so that balances for buildings can be calculated on screen.

Under the declaration number "EPD MT 5.0", the independent body IFT Rosen­heim (Institute of Window Technology) has registered the multi-purpose steel doors from Teckentrup. The 27-page certificate is applicable from January 2012 and is valid for five years.
