Industrial businesses are increasingly looking to construct innovative buildings that will cost little to operate and can be granted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. Industrial businesses, which often run large, energy-hungry facilities are taking note, and recognizing the benefits of programs like LEED. While there are various ways to lower energy costs, specifying high-speed doors for interior and exterior applications can easily reduce energy consumption in industrial facilities. They are useful for a wide range of industrial applications including manufacturing facilities, cold storage areas, parking garages, transportation, and waste management facilities.
