2012 Builders’ Show Preview – Where to See Clopay® Garage Doors

Feb 06, 2012

Clopay will have a big presence at the 2012 International Builders' Show in Orlando, Fla. this week…off the exhibit floor.

Clopay Canyon Ridge® Collection garage doors installed by Florida Door Solutions will be featured on the Cool Energy House (CEH), a remodeling show home project supported by the U.S. Department of Energy's Building America program.

The goal of the Cool Energy House is to demonstrate more than 10 proven, energy-efficiency upgrade measures that together will reduce peak energy consumption of a 1996-"spec-built" home by over 50 percent, while improving overall building quality, comfort, safety and durability.

The home will be open to show attendees and the general public for tours Wednesday through Saturday during the Builders' Show. Courtesy shuttles will be running from the Convention Center.

Architect Patricia Gaylor chose Clopay Canyon Ridge Collection garage doors, Design 13 with Mahogany cladding and overlays, factory stained in a Dark finish, for the Cool Energy Home's three-car attached court-yard style garage.

The Canyon Ridge Collection is a line of rustic "faux wood" composite carriage house style garage doors molded from actual wood to replicate the species' natural texture, intricate grain patterns and even the imperfections.

Unlike real wood, it's moisture resistant so it won't rot, split, shrink, separate, or crack, making it easier to maintain long-term.

The durable 1/2" thick cladding is attached to a polyurethane insulated three-layer steel base door for superior durability and energy efficiency, delivering an impressive 19.2 R-value.
