What Is Clopay Coachman?
The Clopay Coachman is a carriage-style line of garage doors that offers four designs in a series that features specialty panes, arches, and hardware. Coachman doors provide the sophisticated look of a carriage house door coupled with the durability of steel and composite construction. Carriage-style doors are also known as swing-style or side-hinged doors. They often feature extra hardware accents.
Coachman doors combine the look of wood with the durability of steel. The four-layer construction consists of a composite overlay on the exterior, a layer of steel, special polyurethane or polystyrene insulation, and steel on the back of the door. Clopay’s Intellicore insulation is injected, filling the entire door with no gaps. This adds to strength, durability, and soundproofing qualities. The composite surface is available in four colors that can be mixed with overlay and base portions of the door. You can paint your doors with an approved latex paint for a highly customized look.
