Clopay Corporation, a North American garage door manufacturer, is expanding its modern aluminum and glass garage door line with the new residential Avante Sleek and Commercial Models 905/906.
The sectional overhead doors feature horizontal tempered glass or acrylic panels with minimal stiles for broad, unobstructed views with a clean, simple frame design.
This is a departure from the grid-like pattern of Clopay’s other aluminum and glass garage door models, so for builders and architects in search of a garage door that gives off “panoramic vibes” and lets in plenty of natural light, this is it.
Depending on the door model and height, single car doors up to 10-feet, 2-inches wide have no center stile; double doors have one center stile; and doors up to 22-feet, 2-inches wide have two equally spaced vertical stiles.
When closed the door becomes a large window wall so strength and thermal protection are important. Polyurethane insulated models have a 3.8 R-value when paired with tempered, insulated glass panels.
An integral bulb seal between the tongue and groove section joints keeps out air and water. The doors meet ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC air infiltration (AI) requirements and insulated models comply with HFC-free mandates.
Twelve window options are available to control daylight and privacy. Multiple frame colors, including powder-coated and anodized finishes, can be ordered.
Clopay residential Avante doors are available in widths from 4-feet up to 20-feet wide and 16-feet tall. Commercial Model 905/906 doors are available in sizes ranging from 4-feet to 22-feet, 2-inches wide and up to 16-feet tall. Certain restrictions apply. Built-in WindCode reinforcement is offered.
The door can be configured with several track designs including high-lift, following the roof line, or straight up the wall to maximize overhead space and headroom in larger venues.
