Amarr temporarily stops production of Olympus 500 & Designers Choice 500

Submitted by gdcorp on Mon, 06/30/2014 - 16:20

Garage Door Corporation, an Amarr authorized garage door dealer,  has just received a memo from Amarr that due to production issues the Olympus 500 and Designers Choice 500 garage doors have ceased production until 07/21/2014. Any customers ordering these doors will not be able to do this until after production resumes. Amarr also announced that the Classica 3000 series garage door will continue to have an extended lead time of 12 days in plant plus delivery - this is longer than usual 6 day but still not bad for this specialty product.

Cheap garage doors (1 or 2 layer) - Are they worth it?

Submitted by gdcorp on Tue, 09/17/2013 - 02:17

For years we have had residential customers request “the cheapest door you’ve got”. The next comment is usually something like -”I am selling the house” or “It only has to last a few years” or “Why would I need insulation - my garage is not heated”.In most cases they are looking for a 1 layer not insulated garage door for a detached, unheated alley or side drive garage. We have seen builders install these same cheap garage doors on an attached garage with living area above the garage door just to cut their costs.

Submitted by gdcorp on Mon, 02/07/2011 - 20:07

We have been advised that the lead times for Amarr polyurethane garage doors (having an R value up to 13 !!)  remains at 2 to 3 weeks. This includes Olympus and Classica 3000 series garage doors. We are glad to see that the lead times still remain at this level as compared to Clopay (see prior post). We do have access to some Olympus doors in the most common sizes from Amarr regional center stock for immediate installation in the Chicago, IL area. Classica 3000 doors are always a special order due to the wide style configurations available.

Leads times for Clopay polyurethane doors 3-4 weeks

Submitted by gdcorp on Mon, 02/07/2011 - 19:53

We have been advised that the lead times for Clopay polyurethane garage doors (having an R value up to 17.2 !!)  has been reduced to 3 to 4 weeks from the 5-7 weeks announced in December 2010. This includes 9130 series,9200 series, Gallery GD1SU, GD1SU, GD2LU, GD2LU and 3700 series commercial doors. We hope that this time will return to the standard 2 to 3 weeks soon (no comment from Clopay yet). We do have access to some 9200 and 9203 doors in the most common sizes from Clopay regional center stock for immediate installation in the Chicago, IL area.
