Clopay® Adds “Slate” Faux Woodgrain Finish Option to Garage Doors

May 15, 2018

Slate Finish Introduction Products

Clopay’s new “Slate” faux woodgrain finish option is now available on the Canyon Ridge®, Gallery® and Modern Steel garage door collections.

Faux wood garage doors are a popular choice with homeowners who want the warmth and character of real wood without the upkeep.

Clopay’s standard faux woodgrain finish colors have been firmly grounded in shades of brown, ranging from warm medium Oak to rich Cherry to dark Walnut.

Now, as window, siding, and door manufacturers expand their color palettes to include black and charcoal, Clopay has followed suit with Slate, a multi-dimensional finish that can appear rustic or modern, depending on the grain pattern and door style.

Clopay introduced the color at the 2018 International Builders’ Show to the delight of builders and designers looking for garage doors to complement the dark exterior colors schemes their customers want.

Slate is a medium gray hue with undertones of black and khaki that emulate the light and dark shades found in naturally weathered wood.

Thanks to the tri-color technology used to create the finish, Slate blends with a broad range of colors and materials. Whether it’s paired with a white board and batten farmhouse exterior with black window frames, a traditional red brick exterior, or a light color stucco and stone, a Slate garage door adds texture, contrast, and personality to the façade.

Slate is available on specific Clopay carriage house and contemporary door models including the Canyon Ridge Collection Limited Edition Series, the Canyon Ridge Ultra-Grain® Series, the Canyon Ridge Modern Series, the Gallery Collection, and the Modern Steel Collection. All of the doors are available with Intellicore® insulation for added strength, energy efficiency, and quiet operation.
