Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Clopay’s Canyon Ridge Collection faux wood carriage house garage door has been named one of the year’s “Hot 50 Products” by GreenBuilder magazine in their annual list of innovative, high performance, eco-friendly products in the residential building category.
GreenBuilder’s “Hot 50 Products” list appears in the February issue of the magazine and is also available online at http://www.greenbuildermag.com/hot502012.
GreenBuilder’s editors recognized the Canyon Ridge Collection for its unique appearance, material innovation and design versatility, while also pointing out the extreme durability and energy efficiency the door’s five layer construction provides.
Another common denominator among the manufacturers included on the 2012 “Hot 50 Products” list is brand trust.
The editors wrote, “Established companies tend to have in place the distribution, after-market service and in-house research needed to get more efficiency from familiar technology – to create upgraded products that outperform their predecessors.”
“Clopay is committed to designing, manufacturing and distributing garage doors that meet stringent criteria for appearance, durability, energy efficiency and sustainability in a way that minimizes our impact on the environment,” says Pat Lohse, vice president of marketing for Clopay Building Products, North America’s leading residential garage door manufacturer.
Lohse adds, “We are proud to be recognized by GreenBuilder for our product innovation and to be in the company of other trusted brands that share a similar philosophy.”
About the Clopay Canyon Ridge Collection
The Canyon Ridge Collection is a line of high R-value carriage house style garage doors constructed from a durable, low-maintenance composite polymer material that looks like real wood.
The ½” thick cladding and overlays are attached to a polyurethane insulated three-layer steel base door for added strength and energy efficiency, delivering an impressive 19.2 R-value.
The material is molded from actual wood to replicate the species’ natural texture and intricate grain patterns as well as its imperfections. But unlike wood, it’s moisture resistant, so it won’t rot, split, shrink, separate, or crack.
Clopay offers many Canyon Ridge Collection designs, cladding types and finishes to fit a variety of home styles. Optional windows and decorative hardware can be added to enhance the character of the doors.
With three manufacturing facilities and 51 distribution centers across the U.S. and Canada, Clopay Building Products is North America’s leading manufacturer of residential garage doors and a preferred supplier of commercial overhead sectional and rolling steel doors.
Bringing nearly 50 years of experience and innovation to the building products industry, the company maintains a strong family of brands including Clopay®, Holmes Garage Door Company® and IDEAL Door®. Since 1996, Clopay is the only residential garage door brand to earn the Good Housekeeping Seal.
In 2010, the company launched fiberglass and steel entry door lines to complement its popular residential garage door styles. Today, Clopay is the only manufacturer in the industry to offer homeowners the option to coordinate the appearance of the two most important entrances to their home: the front door and the garage.
