Clopay is making it easier for dealers to calculate LEED credits for its commercial overhead sectional and coiling steel garage doors through a dedicated section on the Clopay dealer website at

The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is a third party certification program developed and administered by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. The goal is to use less energy, water, natural resources, and create less waste in the construction and operation of buildings.

The LEED rating system offers four certification levels for new commercial construction: Certified, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, which correspond to the number of credits accrued in five green design categories.

Sectional garage doors fall under the Material and Resources category. Specifically, Credits 4 and 5, documenting the use of post-consumer recyclables and the use of regional materials, respectively.

The technical information tab on Clopay’s dealer portal contains the documentation dealers will need to supply to the building contractor to complete the LEED certification. It includes:

  • a tool to calculate the material content and the dollar value of the products
  • submission letters documenting the percentage of recycled content used in specific Clopay commercial door models, along with information on the location of the manufacturing facility in relation to the job site

Buy American documentation, product literature, and installation instructions can also be found on the portal.

LEED information for Clopay rolling steel doors is contained on the shop drawings for those products and is available upon request.

Clopay fully supports green building initiatives through its product design and manufacturing processes. For more information, contact Clopay’s Commercial Information Assistance team at 800-225-6729.
