Residential Garage Doors

R-value Changes

Exciting News!

We are very pleased to report R-value improvements on all of our 1 3/4″ and 2″ thick polyurethane products.  Recently these doors were retested and the old and new values are listed below:

New R-values:
– 2″ thick = 18.4
– 1 3/4″ thick = 16.2
– 1 3/8″ thick = 12.9
– Canyon Ridge = 20.4

Doors sections were tested at an independent accredited testing laboratory and the R-values were calculated according to DASMA Technical Data Sheet #163.

Price pages, literature, displays, merchandising and online information are being updated to reflect these new R-values.


Commercial Garage Doors

Introduction of Specialty Design Engineered Doors

Clopay is pleased to announce a complete line of specialty design engineered doors for unique applications.  This new product line is divided into several categories of products including fourfold doors, hangar doors, and design engineered doors.  All doors are specifically designed for the opening and the particular application.  They are built for durability, ease of maintenance, aesthetic appeal, and functionality.

Fourfold – Fourfold doors are designed to open smoothly and quickly.  They can be designed to open at a rate of 2′ per second, and have the added value of being able to view the entire opening process while inside the structure.  Fourfold door systems are a complete solution combining low maintenance costs and long service with high cycle operation.  Applications include commercial, industrial, public works, parking and security applications (sally ports).  Panels fold completely clear of the opening allowing full, unobstructed access.  A lighter version of this door is available in 14 x 14 and 12 x 14 size.

Hangar doors – A variety of configurations is available for hangar applications including tiltup, bi-fold, sliding, and telescoping doors.  Just like all of the other products in this line, the door is designed to fit the size and aesthetic requirements of the building owner.

Design Engineered Doors – could be fire rated products, wind rated products, products to allow crane operation both inside and outside the building or even doors that have been manufactured to close a round atrium.  The list goes on.


Wood Doors

Clopay is relocating our wood door manufacturing and finishing operations from Auburn, Washington to Russia, Ohio.  This change will centralize customer service in our Troy manufacturing hub, reduce manufacturing lead times to all of our customers located east of the Rockies and allow us to expand our wood product offering going forward.

We will begin moving equipment on January 25, 2013, during the slowest period of the year to minimize service disruptions.  Production will resume on February 25, 2013.

Wood door orders must be placed by January 4, 2013 to guarantee delivery before the move.

We will continue to quote and take orders during the transition; however, the doors will not be produced until we resume operations on February 25.  Customer service will keep you informed on the shipping dates for orders placed during this time.


Commercial Doors

Black oval windows

A popular look in commercial sectional doors is black oval shaped windows.  Clopay has expanded our commercial window offering to include a black window with rounded corners.  Like our current commercial windows, the new window is made of a polypropylene frame.  It will be offered only in the polyurethane product line and apples to the following Clopay brand models:  3715, 3717, 3718, 3720, and 3722.

The window frame is approximately 26″x13″.  Glazing options include 1/8″ acrylic double pane or 1/8″ Lexan double pane.  Acrylic material is standard, Lexan material will require a 2 week lead time.

A dimensional rendering and image of the frame are below for reference.
