Overview of Garage Door Construction
Our garage door options are in steel and insulation construction configurations, including 1, 2, or 3-layered models. The door insulation types available include polystyrene (2inch or 1-3/8inch) or Intellicore® polyurethane (2, 1-3/8, 1-5/16inch) models. These doors feature R-values (indicating insulation strength) that range from 4.4 to 18.4.
The steel components of the door need to be protected from the elements that garage doors are constantly exposed to, such as rain, sunlight, snow, and more. To this end, a coating system involving the use of a hot-dipped galvanized layer in addition to a baked-on primer layer and a final topcoat ensures that the door is guarded against any corrosive or degrading elements.
Should your garage door be located in an area that experiences a high degree of wind load, WINDCODE® is an available product option that will provide all the reinforcement your door might require.

Overview of Garage Door Designs
You will find garage doors with panels designed in either a grooved or flush steel panel design. The steel surfaces themselves will vary in texture depending on the paint surface and the particular model in question.
Factory finish options run up to 13 in number, including the popular Ultra-Grain® wood-look finish. The window or glass sizes are also an option for client selection, as you will be able to choose from frosted, slim, long, short, and insulated designs.
Is your garage door not going or down properly? Probably because the garage door is off track!
To make any required cleaning processes more manageable, the optional window grilles on some designs are detachable. Doors come with bottom weather seals made out of replaceable vinyl set in stainless (rust-free) aluminum retainers to provide additional protection against the elements.
Safe T-Bracket® is an innovative feature of contemporary garage doors that minimizes the risk of injury if a door’s bottom retainer is removed while the door is in the closed position and under tension.
An effective rust-prevention system is also incorporated into the design of these doors that involves using a robust layering system that consists of a hot-dipped galvanized layer; a metal-oxide pre-treatment procedure; and a primer and topcoat that are applied by baking processes.
