ENTEC Access Systems, as a manufacturer of framework, installer of automatic door systems and a door automation maintenance provider, is aware of its responsibilities to the environment in the running of its business.
With this in mind, we are committed to our environmental policy and continue to seek for improvements and ways to prevent pollution. This policy is implemented across our entire business and ENTEC will monitor closely all issues relating to the market in which we operate and take advice and action where appropriate.
- ENTEC recognises that the products we install have an effect on the environment and we ensure that all staff are aware and trained in our policy, and how to implement it.

- We will use suppliers who are willing to take away packaging for re-use or recycling and will consider the environmental impact of any purchases.
- We will monitor the water and energy consumption of the business and minimise CO2 emissions. We will investigate environmentally safe and sustainable energy sources and will employ them in the operation of the business where possible.
- We will try to reduce waste production and carry out recycling as much as possible.
- We will ensure that dust and excessive noise do not cause a nuisance to the community surrounding our place of business or sites on which we’re working.
