New Door Solutions with Sustainability in Mind

To reduce our environmental impact not only through operations but by creating smarter and more energy-efficient technologies, we are here to offer new and improved solutions to an increasingly pressing global issue.

Energy saving entrance systems

Almost twice that of transport, the building sector accounts for 39% of global CO2 emissions. One of the biggest factors of this lies in the energy used by buildings to maintain their indoor climates, which is affected by the amount of air that comes and goes through open doors.

ASSA ABLOY’s comprehensive array of entrance systems includes automatic, swing, sliding, and revolving doors. These entrance systems can significantly help reduce the cost and energy consumption of buildings by minimizing air leakage and having faster response rates 

They are of particular value to retail, healthcare, and private commercial buildings, which have high traffic and footfall areas. Where accessibility is made more efficient and sustainable, the whole building saves energy and reduces its environmental impact.

EcoFlex and Low Energy locks

Electrified access systems use up a lot more energy than actually needed. Answering the current need for smarter, more energy-efficient solutions to the environmental crisis, our revolutionary EcoFlex technology contains a power-saving design that has lowered energy consumption by up to 96%.

Third-party certified by GreenCircle, EcoFlex is available in the form of electrified door components like mortise locks and exit trims. With its dramatic reduction in energy consumption, this progressive technology is a reliable solution that can be applied to all and any building types. 

ASSA ABLOY has introduced the world’s first-ever high-security energy-efficient electric lock. Our Low Energy locks are unparalleled in their level of power consumption. In fact, the energy consumed by 1 magnetic lock is enough to power up to 3,000 of our Low Energy locks. Maintaining a large operating voltage range, and even enabling wireless applications, this revolutionary electric lock can be installed in a range of building types and renovation sites.

Starting small and thinking big

No matter big or small, all sustainable businesses can contribute to the betterment of our global environment. That is why Mana Kai, a small beekeeping business in New Zealand, does not shy away from using intelligent technologies to improve product quality and overall operations. 

Using HID Global RFID tags, the beekeepers at Mana Kai are now able to track the location of their hives at any given time, eliminating paper usage, improving workforce communication, and boosting overall efficiency and practicality.
