Watch our garage door "accident" on NBC's Chicago Fire 4/3/13

Submitted by gdcorp on Mon, 04/01/2013 - 07:17

We were glad to provide and install  2 Amarr Stratford 3000 pinch resistant garage doors for NBC's hit series Chicago Fire recently. Filming was performed on location on Chicago's north side. We are told the episode featuring these garage doors will air 04/03/2013. Without giving away the plot we can reveal that an individual is severely injured by one of the 2 garage doors and is found hanging from the garage door track. Maybe he should have followed all of those safety warnings on the label!

Have a "Good Friday" & Easter / Happy Passover - but let's not be too pc

Submitted by gdcorp on Mon, 04/02/2012 - 20:21
This week many of our customers will celebrate Good Friday & Easter or Passover. While some of our customers may think it is not pc (politically correct) to speak of these days we feel that everyone should be able to accept others holidays. An example of the pc going too far came the other day from Clopay Garage Doors when we received our annual fax advising us that their distribution centers (and corporate offices) would be closed on Friday April 6, 2012 for "Spring Break Day".

Clopay starts offering oil tempered coated and marked torsion springs

Submitted by gdcorp on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 19:51

Like many Clopay dealers we were very disappointed years ago when Clopay switched from oil tempered to galvanized torsion springs for residential doors. They would not allow the doors to be ordered with the oil tempered springs even though they were available on a special order basis since the commercial doors were still be offered with the oil tempered springs. Garage Door Corporation has been supplying all doors and replacement springs as oil tempered for years and was requiring Clopay to remove the galvanized spring cost from every door order.

Ultra grain Walnut now available

Submitted by gdcorp on Thu, 06/09/2011 - 06:43
Clopay has started shipping the latest color in the Ultra Grain line - Walnut. This is in addition to medium oak and dark oak. Market testing shows most reviewers preferred the walnut to the dark oak. The ultra grain finish is available on Gallery series doors from Clopay and provides both vertical and horizontal grain patterns to simulate a "real" stained wood door with the insulation and low maintenance of a steel door. In fact we can supply these doors with an insulation value up to r=17.2. We are awaiting literature with the new color but we do have color chip samples.
