HIA Honorable Mention: Clopay Garage Door

Keeping up with color trends is fun, especially when the color is rich, classy black. But sometimes outdoor surfaces such as a garage door can't handle the deep hue because it absorbs too much heat...until now.

In the past, painting a steel garage door black was asking for trouble: The paint would absorb too much heat, causing the door to warp in high temperatures. But thanks to Clopay’s new thermal-reflective paint technology, its Gallery Collection and Classic Collection steel garage doors with Intellicore insulation technology are now available in black (starting at $600) so you can keep up with the sophisticated color trend.

Stay tuned for Handy's full coverage of the Clopay Black Steel Garage Doors with Thermal Reflective Paint Technology and the other 2014 Handy Innovation Award winners and honorable mentions in the Winter 2014 issue.
