Clopay® Earns Gold Innovation Award from Home Builder Executive
Cincinnati, OH --
Clopay today announced that it has received a Gold Award from the editors of Home Builder Executive for product innovation in the garage door category.
Clopay’s Coachman® Collection 2” polyurethane insulated steel and composite carriage house garage door and the Canyon Ridge® Collection Ultra-Grain® Series were both recognized for their durable, low-maintenance, innovative design, and superior energy efficiency.
“Carriage house doors continue to be popular among homeowners and builders looking for ways to distinguish and add value to their homes,” says Pat Lohse, vice president of residential marketing for Clopay. “These two products provide the look of natural wood without the upkeep. Clopay’s use of innovative construction materials and foam-injected polyurethane insulation help reduce maintenance costs and energy loss.”
Clopay recently added a 2” thick polyurethane insulation option with an R-value of 18.4 to its Coachman Collection, doubling the thermal performance of a polystyrene insulated door of the same thickness.
Fifteen carriage house designs with optional windows, decorative hardware and four paint colors are available to complement a variety of architectural styles.
The company also expanded on the success of its Canyon Ridge Collection Limited Edition Series faux wood door line, introducing an equally attractive and more economical version called the Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series. It features a 2” polyurethane insulated steel base door with Ultra-Grain,a durable, natural-looking, woodgrain paint finish. Stained Clear Cypress composite overlays are applied to the steel door surface to create beautiful carriage house designs. It also has an R-value of 18.4. The ½”-thick cladding overlay material is molded from actual pieces of Clear Cypress wood to replicate its natural texture and intricate grain patterns.
The Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series is available in fourteen panel designs with a choice of windows or solid top sections in two finish colors: Medium and Walnut.
