Sustainable Door Protectors

1-2-3 Door Shield® door protectors are more cost effective on a per-use basis than alternative methods of door protection and, in most cases, will save money when compared to repairing and replacing doors that are not protected.

Furthermore, Door Shields are better for the environment than do-it-yourself door protection alternatives.

1-2-3 Door Shield® door protectors are composite, heavy-duty pulp paper-based products made from 100% recycled materials (>90% post-consumer). In fact, our manufacturing partner is one of the first independent packaging companies in Colorado to be granted a Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certification.

Door Shields are durable enough for re-use and can be used on multiple doors and/or projects. The waste generated as a result of door protection is greatly reduced thanks to the re-usable nature of our product.

When Doors Shields have reached the end of their useful life, they can be recycled.

Their patented abrasion and static-resistant inner liner is coated with a Michelman water-based coating which preserves the natural recycling advantage of paperboard. A Miami University repulping study confirmed that Michelman-coated board is repulpable and does not have to be segregated during the recycling process.

All of the printing ink used on our door protectors is low VOC, water-based and biodegradable. Our ink manufacturer is a Sony Green Partner. All inks are recycled as well.

1-2-3 Door Shield® provides the easiest, most effective method for protecting your doors during construction, moving and maintenance activities. But that’s just the beginning.

One of the most important considerations of any door protection method is the amount of waste generated. On a single-use basis, Door Shields generate about 65-80% of the waste created using typical old-school methods. Because Door Shields are designed and intended to be re-used, however, the actual amount of waste generated by Door Shields on a per-opening basis can be 25% or less of the waste created by do-it-yourself methods of door protection.

1-2-3 Door Shield® protects your doors, your bottom line and the environment for future generations. Contact us today for more information.
