“Faux wood garage doors are an attractive alternative to natural wood because they won’t rot, warp or crack, eliminating many of the ongoing maintenance concerns of real wood," says Pat Lohse, Clopay’s vice president of residential marketing.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Clopay, North America's leading residential garage door manufacturer, is expanding its line of faux wood carriage house garage doors, combining two of the company’s most popular door models into a new energy efficient, low-maintenance, economically priced line called the Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series.
The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series features a polyurethane insulated steel base door finished with the company’s innovative Ultra-Grain simulated woodgrain paint finish. Composite overlays molded from actual pieces of Clear Cypress wood are attached to the surface of the door to create the carriage house designs.
“Faux wood garage doors are an attractive and economical alternative to natural wood doors because they won’t rot, warp or crack, eliminating many of the the ongoing maintenance concerns of real wood,” says Pat Lohse, Clopay’s vice president of residential marketing.
The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series is available in fourteen panel designs with a choice of windows or solid top sections in two factory finish stain colors: Walnut and Medium. Optional decorative hardware can be added to enhance the character of the doors.
The ½”-thick cladding overlay material is molded from actual pieces of Clear Cypress wood to replicate its natural texture and intricate grain patterns. Once installed, it’s virtually indistinguishable from real wood.
The Ultra-Grain paint finish has a horizontal grain pattern to complement the Clear Cypress overlays.
Clopay’s Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain door models feature 2"-thick polyurethane insulation foam injected between two layers of heavy gauge steel with a thermal break, providing an 18.4 R-value for year round comfort and improved energy efficiency.
Polyurethane insulation delivers twice the thermal performance of polystyrene insulation of the same thickness. It also adds strength and rigidity to the door panels, which helps reduce noise and resist dents. Insulated windows are also offered.
