ASSA ABLOY Focuses on Product Transparency With Declare Labels
ASSA ABLOY is the only company to release Declare labels in the power supply, maglock, electric strike and deadbolt categories.
- Adams Rite MS1850S Series MS (maximum security) deadbolts
- HES 1006 and 9600 Series electric strikes
- Securitron M32 and M62 Magnalocks
- Securitron’s AQD6 Series of Switching Power Supplies
ASSA ABLOY is the only company to release Declare labels in the power supply, maglock, electric strike and deadbolt categories, and has the second most Declare labels of any manufacturer in the building industry, according to the company.
Declare documentation is described as a “nutrition label” for products.
“These ‘nutrition labels’ enable us to make better decisions about the materials that go into our products,” said Scott Baker, president, ASSA ABLOY EMS & OEM Group. “Plus, LEED v4 just launched last week, and our work in transparency heavily contributes to it.”
Securitron, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand, also announced the release of an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for its EcoPower Power Supply. The documentation shows the cradle-to-grave life cycle of the power supply and how it affects the environment.
Baker says, “This is a company-wide commitment to transparency, making everything we manufacture more sustainable. Everyone at ASSA ABLOY is striving to make our solutions better for the environment and for the people interacting with them.”
