The Green Door

Choosing a beautiful door for your home reflects your style but also your awareness of sustainability as a factor in manufacturing and designing your door. Corinthian is a proud supplier of timber doors that support the green building industry in Australia as well as related products to maximise energy savings in the home.

Corinthian Doors has a reputation as Australia’s largest and most innovative door manufacturer. The company is an industry leader in environmentally responsible practices and products, and acts to responsibly manage resources, maximise efficient use of energy and materials, minimise waste, and provide customers with long-lasting green products that provide excellent performance.

According to Corinthian, its customers are increasingly demanding green products for their homes, whether they are remodeling or building a new home.

In line with the company’s environmental commitment, Corinthian is a proud supplier of a range of FSC (see below) certified timber doors available in Solid Core and Flush Panel construction as well as in the Fire Door range. These doors also comply with material (MAT) and quality (IEQ) standards of the Green Building Council of Australia, and can contribute to credit points for Green Star Rating of a building project.

FSC certified timber

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, membership based, non-profit organisation founded in 1993 by environmentalists, social interest groups, indigenous peoples’ organisations, responsible retailers and leading forest management companies to develop standards based on the ‘10 Principles for Forest Stewardship’ by which responsible forest practice can be measured.

FSC promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests.

According to FSC, it has the world’s most rigorous forest product labeling scheme. It is the only forest label supported by environmental groups such as the World Wildlife Fund, Greenpeace and The Australian Conservation Foundation, and by major forest product retailers.

According to Corinthian, timber is durable, versatile, recyclable and a beautiful material that has been used for building for centuries. It is non-toxic and its growth and replanting removes carbon dioxide from the environment. Timber is the only truly sustainable construction material. The company strives to utilise suppliers who adhere to sustainable practices in their harvest and replanting operations.

Corinthian DoorsCorinthian also supplies its door entry systems with Enviro-seal to achieve valuable energy savings for the home. Gaps around doors and windows in an average home can result in a serious loss of winter warmth or summer’s air-conditioned cool.

The Enviro-seal pre-hung door system provides wind and noise insulation and prevents water penetration and air leaks. Enviro-seal beneficially seals an entrance door around factory-fitted jambs and across a self-draining tread that is available in a natural anodised finish for durability and a smart, modern look.

According to Corinthian it is in the company’s interest, the customers’ interest and the industry’s interest to accelerate the adoption of building practices that result in more energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings.
