10 Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this program, participants will: Understand the importance of high-performance door and hardware solutions in energy efficient and net zero buildings. Know the difference between Calculated and Operable U factors and air infiltration for optimal door opening energy efficiency. Identify doors, gaskets, hardware and frames available and their effects on the energy efficiency of the building envelope. Learn how Green codes & BIM will change the future of door opening specifications. What else would you like to learn?

11 Energy & Atmosphere According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC): In the United States alone, buildings account for: 72% of electricity consumption 39% of energy use 38% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions

12 Energy Efficiency – Envelope Design High-performance doors and hardware play an important role in enhancing building energy efficiency A few basic measures can be taken to improve the thermal integrity of doorways in the building envelope Building design can optimize energy performance Stack pressure within a building forces air through any opening, causing the heating/cooling system to work harder Need to create an airtight building envelope Acts as a barrier to lessen thermal exchange Fairmont Pittsburgh – LEED Gold

13 Energy & Atmosphere - Doors & Hardware impact on buildings Approx 40% of energy leakage comes from the building envelope* Floors, Walls & Ceilings – 31% Windows - 10% Doors - 11% *Tony Woods, Air tight buildings, 2005 * Richard S. Duncan, Ph.D., P.E. Technical Director Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance

14 Code/LEED requirements for Opaque Swinging Door specifications Use door openings that exceed ASHRAE Standards by a minimum 5% for remodel and 10% for new 14 Operable U Values Calculated using ASTM C1363 Operable Air Infiltration Calculated using ASTM E283

15 Energy Efficiency – Calculated vs. Operable Values ASTM C1363 is the most current test standard for operable thermal transmittance, replacing ASTM C236 ASTM E283 is the most current test standard for operable air infiltration to meet and IGCC

16 New Mandatory Green Codes IGCC 2012 & ASHRAE – Standard is a set of technically rigorous requirements, which like the IGCC, covers criteria including water use efficiency, indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency, materials and resource use, and the buildings impact on its site and its community 30% improvement over 2006 IECC Adopted by US Army Corps of Engineers Reflects the AIA 2030 Commitment Requires better fenestration ACE, GSA and State of Washington have envelope infiltration allowance at.25 cfm/sf2 P

17 Insulated Core Doors Closing & Latching Thermal Break and Kerf Frames Thresholds/Door Bottoms/Gasketing EAC Security System Assemblies

18 Kerf Frames Kerf frames Specially designed frames feature a groove along the frame section that comes in contact with the door edge Simplifies installation of weatherstripping Serves as a convenient channel to install weatherstripping without using additional fasteners Weatherstripping easily removable

19 Thermal Break Frames Thermal break frames can improve an openings U-factor Since door frames are made of metal, a thermal break consisting of an insulated material is needed to stop heat transmission Reduce heat loss Prevent frost/condensation Provides a positive thermal break within the frame profile Delivers maximum protection against cold penetration Ideal for openings exposed to extreme cold Weatherstripping easily removable

20 Insulated Door Types Insulated doors boost the R-factor of an opening Hollow metal doors commonly used in building envelope Constructed from sheet metal in 20-18, 16- and 14-gauge thickness Core or interior space can be filled with insulated material Polystyrene Polyurethane Polyurethane Core

21 Calculated vs Operable Values Actual installed performance

22 Sealing the Gaps What is air infiltration? Air infiltration: A measurement of the air leakage around the perimeter of a door opening CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute Example of air infiltration test results: = Air leakage <.4 cfm/sf = Air leakage <.2 cfm/sf2

23 Gasketing & Weatherstripping Gasketing available in several materials Silicone Santoprene (100% recyclable- avoid Chloroprene/Neoprene) Vinyl Polypropylene Materials are flexible Do not impede door operation Available in varying Grades to meet conditions of different climate zones Look for products that meet or exceed ANSI Door Gasketing and Edge Seal Systems standards

24 24 Accessibility standards requires thresholds be a maximum of 1/2 high Thresholds, Door Bottoms, Gasket

26 Energy Efficiency – Door Closers Overcoming stack pressure Stack pressure created by differences between inside and outside air pressure Can create a strong rush of air to flow out that overpowers the closing cycle of the door closer Door may stay open longer than intended or fail to latch shut Properly sized closer needed to overcome stack pressure

36 Energy Efficiency – Revolving Doors Alternatives to swinging/sliding doors Revolving doors Revolving doors stop the free flow of air Revolving door is never open Seals remain in contact with walls of the doors at all times Only air transferred is in the chamber with the person using the door

37 Energy Efficiency – Revolving Doors MIT 2006 study Swinging doors allow 8x as much air exchange as a revolving door Study estimated that limiting ingress and egress to revolving doors would save school $7,500 a year for a single building Accompanying reduction in emissions would total about 15 tons of CO2 annually per building Result achieved by utilizing 2 of the 29 revolving doors on campus!
