Going Green within Your Office

by | Jan 4, 2013 | Business

There are several simple steps you can take to implement an environmentally friendly building code into your commercial office space.  While you already realize that minimizing waste is one of the most important ways you can do this, you can use sustainable products within your office space to achieve this goal as well.  By using a commercial wood door in various areas of the office building and your own personal space, you can create an office that is healthier than most.

Every product emits certain substances and some more than others.  Materials such as plastics and synthetic items will emit the chemicals from which they are made.  Every time you touch one of these materials, you are putting those chemicals on your body and with continued exposure may begin to have health issues because of them.  Most products are sealed and not left open for too much of the chemicals to be released but some are still present.  Something like a commercial wood door will be as clean of a material as you can find in a door.  Think about the numerous times throughout the days that you will touch the door and ask yourself if you want to be touching something natural or man-made materials that could emit harmful toxins.

A commercial wood door can be made to absorb sound better than a standard door and will have a high end look.   Even with the most basic wood door, it will have a luxury feel with the heaviness and sturdiness that only a wood door can provide.  If you are looking to upgrade your office space to feel more comfortable and designer inspired, a wood door can give you that look and feel.  By having a green product in one of the most prominent areas of the office, you will immediately send the message that green and sustainable is important to you.  This is important if you are in specific industries but can also help the rest of the offices in your building and your clients realize that sustainable and responsible can also be visually appealing.  Don’t settle for the materials that are man-made and come from questionable ingredients but choose a naturally occurring material that you know where it came from and how it was harvested.  With the various finishes and styles available, you can achieve a high-end look while remaining true to the green and environmental desires of your company.

By installing a commercial wooden door you are able to provide a sustainable product and a beautiful piece at the same time. Get in touch with VT Industries Inc for a commercial wood door.
