Garex garage doors come with a number of features that really set them apart.

Garex garage doors come with a number of features that really set them apart. The first innovation worth pointing out is our exclusive composite end blocks, which have already been featured in another blog post. But that’s not the only area where we’re on the cutting edge.


Surface protection

Our steel and aluminum are protected by the best painting process in the industry. Whether you opt for an insulated garage door made of steel or aluminum, we use the highest quality heavy-duty baked paints. We can even add a reflective agent to the paint on request.

The multilayer techniques we’ve developed offer maximum protection against the harmful effects of the sun and harsh weather conditions. For example, depending on the material our garage doors can be protected with the following coatings:

Galvanized steel

✔️Baked paint (2 layers)

✔️Primer

✔️Z-180 galvanized coating

✔️26-gauge steel*

✔️Z-180 galvanized coating

✔️Primer

*The lower the gauge, the thicker, stronger, and more resistant the steel.

Treated aluminum

✔️Baked paint (2 layers)

✔️Primer

✔️Chromate pretreatment

✔️23-gauge aluminum*

✔️Chromate pretreatment

✔️Primer


Eliminating thermal bridges

We also minimize the amount of potential heat transfer between the inside and outside of your garage. It’s important to understand that the R-value is not the only thing to look at when assessing a garage door’s energy performance in terms of insulation. Even doors with an R-16 rating or higher can lose significant energy efficiency if the structure allows for heat transfer between the outside and inside of the garage.

Garex garage doors feature an innovative design that avoids the “thermal bridge” phenomenon. The composite end blocks and inset weatherstripping eliminate all direct contact with interior and exterior metal cladding. That means the two metal walls are completely insulated from each other.

These features are just a few of the advantages offered by Garex products. Contact us to find out more
