Exeter Architectural Products
Environmental Statement

Exeter Architectural Products is committed to conducting our business in an environmentally responsible and proactive manner, consistent with our commitment to corporate citizenship, social responsibility and sustainability. Our experience has demonstrated that sustainable business practices are cost-effective, build employee and customer loyalty and even drive new business for the company.

We aim to conserve natural resources and minimize waste through source reduction and recycling, handling and disposing of waste through safe and environmentally responsible methods, promoting energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources, and encouraging our business partners and suppliers to strive for the same high levels of environmental performance.

Climate Change

Our business has been addressing environmental issues for almost two decades. We regularly examine our company-wide energy usage, and have altered infrastructure and changed business processes and procedures with the goal of lowering energy costs and reducing our carbon footprint.

Independent laboratory testing of Exeter’s perforated window and door protection products determined the Shading Coefficient of the installations to be 0.51, affording an almost 50% reduction in solar heat gain through the protected openings, and thereby promoting a significant energy savings for our customers.

Materials and Recycling

We understand that working with our supply chain responsibly is critical to the continued enhancement of our environmental performance. In that regard, Exeter Architectural Products communicates its environmental policy, practices and impacts to suppliers and contractors via a number of supply chain management tools. Our efforts are realized in the following way:

- Exeter’s products, manufacturing and finishing processes, and packaging materials are free from hazardous materials, CFC’s and other ozone depleting substances.
- Exeter’s finished products are 100% recyclable, and are fabricated from 90% recycled materials. All metal scrap from fabrication is recycled.

Waste Reduction

In addition to our company-wide effort to use recycled materials including paper products, Exeter strives to reduce our environmental footprint by limiting sources for products, packaging and distribution materials, and by cutting down on the waste produced throughout our processes.


Exeter Architectural Products is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
