Coachman® Garage Doors – Steel Doors That Look Like Wood

Mar 1, 2024 | Blog, Carriage-Style Garage Doors, Residential Garage Doors

All four versions of Clopay’s Coachman garage doors deliver the charm of wood and the practicality of steel. Each is crafted from multiple layers of durable, low-maintenance steel plus a layer of insulation. In addition, each is topped by a wood grain textured composite overlay. When you want to add the appeal of an old-fashioned, swing-out garage door to your Janesville WI home, check out one of the Coachman doors.

Fitting traditional, historic and contemporary architecture, these insulated steel doors are ideal for southern Wisconsin.

There are four series within the Coachman collection. Each displays basic design features including:

  • Four standard factory-applied paint and overlay colors – in addition, you can mix overlay and base colors to create custom finishes.
  • Several window glass options including clear, seeded, rain, obscure, frosted and insulated.
  • Clip-in window grilles – easy to remove for cleaning.
  • Standard spade lift handles and step plates plus custom decorative hardware options.

Each of the four series of Coachman garage doors features the same construction strengths, including:

  • Four distinct layers of construction in each steel carriage house-style door.
  • Insulation options include 2-inch “Intellicore® polyurethane, 2-inch polystyrene or 1 3/8-inch polystyrene. R-value ranges from 6.5 to 18.4.
  • Steel skins protected by a hot-dipped galvanized steel layer topped with a baked-on primer and top coat.

For special situations and added strength, each is available with Clopay’s Windcore® garage door reinforcement system for high wind load situations.

On the bottom edge of each door is a vinyl weather seal that’s replaceable as it wears. And, each door features corrosion-resistant aluminum retainers to protect against the elements.

Coachman Garage Doors – Warmer, Quieter, Stronger

The manufacturer’s motto for its Coachman garage doors is: Warmer, quieter, stronger. Its Intellicore insulation technology revolves around an exclusive polyurethane foam injected into the garage door. It expands to fill the entire steel structure. The dense insulation not only provides significant R-value, it makes the door stouter and quieter.

Warmer – Insulated garage doors keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

Quieter – dense, sound-absorbing foam not only makes the garage door’s operation quieter, it filters out external noises. The recorded sound from a standard non-insulated garage door commonly comes in at about 96 decibels. An Intellicore door measures 80 decibels. Does a difference of 16 decibels really make much difference? It certainly does. Decibels don’t relate one-to-one. The result actually shows the insulation makes the Intellicore doors appear to your ear as 3-times quieter!

Strength – incorporating the Intellicore system each garage door section tests out to be nearly twice as strong as polystyrene insulated sections of the same thickness. Making a door more rigid helps it stand up to daily wear.

The doors’ composite overlays and base steel come in standard colors of White, Almond, Desert Tan and Sandstone. Mixed and used in combination they create custom looks. They feature the “look of wood and the ease of steel,” according to designers.
