American Garage Door - Blog


Nothing gets us more excited here at American Garage Door of Louisiana than when a product comes out that we know our customers will love – and actually benefit from. That's why we couldn't wait to write up this article that casts a much-deserved spotlight on the brand-new Clopay Modern Steel Collection.

Clopay's latest line of garage doors complement any contemporary or mid-century modern home styles found throughout Greater New Orleans. And while the versatility in design (windows, color, etc.) is enough to make it one of the most sought after models on the market, the proverbial cherry on top is the intellicore insulation technology that these doors are built with.

Clopay's intellicore insulation technology addresses three of the biggest concerns and pain points homeowners have when it comes to garage doors:

  1. Warmer - The core of these garage doors ensures optimized energy efficiency all year round
  2. Quieter - Dense insulation reduces noise by up to 16 decibels, turning your garage into a potential sanctuary from the ruckus
  3. Stronger - Enhanced strength that resists everyday wear and tear, protecting your investment for years to come

A closer look at what stands the Modern Steel Collection apart from the rest

Rust-prevention system

The steel skins of Clopay's garage doors are protected through a tough, layered coating system (including a hot-dipped galvanized layer), a protective metal pretreatment and a baked-on primer and top coat, making these doors all but impervious to rust.

Greater energy efficiency

We've already discussed the impact of the intellicore insulation technology, but most of the Modern Steel Collection models also feature Thermal break, which separates the interior from the exterior skin to even further improve energy efficiency and comfort.


The featured patented Safe-T-Bracket® helps prevent serious injuries that could occur if the bottom bracket were removed with the garage door closed under tension. Furthermore, galvanized steel hinges attached to backup plates are durable, reliable, and secure.


The nylon rollers on the garage door are smooth, quiet, and built to last.
