San Francisco, November 1, 2022 – As the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo enters its 20th year, ASSA ABLOY reinforces its commitment to sustainability with a line-up of on-site education and a dynamic showcase of its sustainable product offerings and initiatives.
Featured in Booth 1445, ASSA ABLOY highlights its key sustainability initiatives and products, headlined by the SARGENT 8200 Series Electrified Mortise Lock with EcoFlex Technology and the new Ceco Door and Curries Mercury 2 Adjustable Thermal Break Hollow Metal Frame (launching November 9 from Ceco and Curries).
The 8200 Series Mortise Lock, which has achieved Living Product Challenge certification from the International Living Future Institute, operates from 12 to 24VDC and can be used in stand-alone applications or as part of an integrated access control system. Featuring EcoFlex technology, the electromechanical version dramatically reduces power consumption by up to 96%, as certified by GreenCircle.
The new Mercury 2 Adjustable Thermal Break Frame is an energy-efficient frame that incorporates a unique 2” range of depth adjustment to accommodate variations in wall thickness, can be used as an adaptable inventory solution, and ensures a lower cost of ownership. The frame features a bonded thermal break with a Pemko S44 compression-type weather-stripping.
“We are excited to showcase our sustainable products and solutions in San Francisco,” says Amy Musanti, Director of Sustainability for ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. “The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo gives ASSA ABLOY the opportunity to meet face-to-face with leaders in sustainable building materials and collaborate first-hand with the world's leading architects, designers, consultants, and end users.”
