Clopay Canyon Ridge Collection grabbed dealer’s attention as soon as doors were open at the Expo 2009 International Door and Association “IDA Show, which was held in Nashville, TN this spring. Dealers congregated around the Canyon Ridge Doors at the Clopay booth.
“Many thought the door was wood at first,” says Pat Lohse, vice president of residential marketing. “When dealers realized it was a composite material, they liked it even more”
The Canyon Ridge Collection
Features a polymer composite cladding with a high definition grain that has a resemblance to a real wood product. The lightweight ½” cladding is attached to a insulated three layer steel door. The definition for three layer would be steel – insulation – steel composite.
“Dealers were very excited about the 17.2 R- value the doors offer” offer” added Mischel Schonberg, public relations manager, “ and the fact that it’s maintenance free.”
Unlike real wood products, the Canyon Ridge door’s surface is UV resistant and impervious to moisture, so it won’t rot, split, shrink, separate or crack.
Lohse says the Canyon Ridge Collection will be offered in a 2” polyurethane base and a 1-3/8” polystyrene base. The doors are set to be available late summer.
