Green Garage Doors

The “Green Story” of Clopay Garage and Entry Doors

Adams Door Systems and Clopay are committed to manufacturing and installing garage doors and entry doors that enhance the beautysafety and value of your home and doing so in a way that reduces the overall impact on the environment in every step of the process – from product design to manufacturing to distribution.  We are doing our part so you can do your part to help make your home green!

As the largest moving part on your home, your garage door plays an important part in maintaining its structural integrity and energy efficiency – two important criteria in green building design.  Clopay’s entry doors feature “Intelligent Design” for unsurpassed energy efficiency, durability and weather protection.

“Green” Garage Doors…


Energy Efficiency:


Material Efficiency – long lasting products, fewer replacements:

Steel Products:Our Coachman Collection of steel carriage style garage doors help conserve natural resources by providing an attractive, low maintenance steel and composite alternative to traditional Wood Doors.

  • Doors are impervious to moisture and will not rot, warp, crack or fade
  • A number of our doors are insulated with environmentally safe, CFC-free foamed-in-place polyurethane or expanded polystyrene made from recycled content.
Wood Products:Materials for our Reserve Collection Wood doors are purchased from suppliers who have certifications for their logging practices.  Rain forests are not damaged and green practices are followed.The mills we purchase from re-plant for the harvested timber to secure a long term sustainable wood fiber and sustainable forest management.

 

Structural Integrity:

Residential doors are counterbalanced with galvanized torsion springs that last 50% longer than industry standard oil-tempered springs.
Our steel is true 24, 25 or 27 gauge to ensure a quality appearance, dent resistance and longer life.
A paint system that begins with hot dipped galvanizing, then coating with a baked-on primer, and finished with a baked-on top coat both inside and out, reduces fading and wear from natural exposure.

 

LiftMaster garage door openers have been recognized as sustainable and LEED® qualified.

To even further increase the longevity and sustainability of your Clopay garage door, take advantage of our Gold Bar Guarantee, featuring commercial grade hardware with a lifetime warranty.


Manufacturing Efficiency:

  • Clopay meets and exceeds EPA guidelines for manufacturing.
  • We recycle scrap steel, cardboard and polystyrene.
  • We continuously look for ways to reduce packaging and disposable material coming into our plants.
  • In 2006 we upgraded our transport fleet to introduce 100 new trailers equipped with special track to help better secure product and reduce potential for damage and ultimately waste from product loss.
  • Our fleet runs on low sulphur diesel fuel and are equipped with computers to monitor idle time, engine performance and driver performance to maximize fuel efficiency.
  • Our loading and unloading procedures have been shortened to reduce carbon emissions associated with truck idling.
