Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
BP Glass Garage Doors & Entry System, Inc, one of the leading innovators in glass garage door technology and design, is announcing that its products comply with US Department of Energy, International Code Council, and California Energy Commissions (Title 24 subsection 116) requirement for commercial and residential fenestration and exterior doors. BP's green-friendly manufacturing process minimizes pollution and energy consumption, while maintaining the exceptional quality and design architects, builders and homeowners have come to expect from the company.
"The plant utilizes approximately 25-40% by weight of post-industrial (pre-consumer) and 60-75% by weight of post-consumer recycled materials within our products and manufacturing process," says Rob Reyes, President, BP Glass Garage Doors & Entry Systems, Inc. "Our doors are made of 95% recycled aluminum, glass and steel. In addition, materials used in production are acquired regionally within 500 miles of the manufacturing facility."
By reaching these high standards of green manufacturing, architects and builders alike are likely to achieve third-party credits toward certifications such as LEED**, by providing environmentally preferred products to their clients.
"Being an architect in California, I have to be current with various energy codes with respect to our designs," said Oscar Corea, Architect, ACSA, Inc. "I utilize BP Glass Garage Doors in my client's homes and businesses because they are the only manufacturer to meet Title 24 criteria without compromising the quality and design of their products."
All of the company's glass garage doors are designed and installed to operate year after year under salt air, moisture and extremely harsh conditions, requiring very low maintenance. BP Glass Garage Doors & Entry Systems "Hurricane Line" has been approved for use in and out of all High Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ). In addition, the company's launch of the industry's first fully-insulated glass garage door allows for further energy conservation.
