EcoSwing Post-Consumer Recycled Traffic Door

Chase is proud to announce that we have developed a door that will contribute to LEED credits. The EcoSwing™ might look like our SRP5000 door, but the panel is made out of 98% post-consumer recycled content. The window is approximately 80% recycled content and the spine is recycled anodized aluminum with 81% recycled content, 57% pre-consumer content, and 24% post consumer content.

According to U.S. Green Building Council, LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system. LEED lays out a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

Materials that contain both pre-consumer and/or post-consumer recycled content will contribute towards LEED credits. Recycled content is calculated based on the amount of recycled material in the product, either from a product weight or product cost standpoint (varies by project). For any pre-consumer recycled material content, your customer will receive 50% of recycled dollar value of the door, but for postconsumer recycled material content, your customer will receive the full 100% of the recycled value. - LEED MR Credit 4 – Recycled Content

For example:
• If you have an 84” x 84” EcoSwing Door
• The standard 9” x 14” recycled window
• Total recycled content is 78% (74% post-consumer, 4% pre-consumer)
Based on product cost, approximately $75 out of every $100 of the purchase price would contribute to LEED Credits!

Door Panel – Lightweight, durable doors are constructed of 1/2” thick recycled material. Door panels are textured and have the color throughout, hiding normal dents and scratches.

Back Edge Spine – Back edge spine is a one-piece, continuous extruded 1/4” x 2” diameter anodized aluminum tube with flanges that radius the door panel for added strength and durability. The recycled content is 81% with 57% being –pre-consumer and 24% being post consumer.

Leading Edge – Leading panel edge is beveled for safety.

Hinge – Proven hinge system mounts to the jamb with offset cam system and hardened rollers, for years of service with minimal maintenance.

Window & Frames – Windows are 9” x 14” is made with approximately 80% pre-consumer recycled content.
