FEATURES AND BENEFITS
A HIGH-PRESSURE INJECTED POLYURETHANE
- Stronger and more energy-efficient insulation
- Solidly bonded to the aluminum sheets providing a section that is resistant to flexion.
- Pre-painted (5 coats),
0.60 mm thick
aluminum is ideal for large-sized doors.
Being very lightweight helps to extend
the life of the components for doors with
a large number of operation cycles.
C INTERLOKTM TRIPLE-CONTACT JOINTS
- Sections are strengthened by 2 aluminum
walls joined together with mechanical
interlocking joints which are more solid
than just two bonded walls.
- Their mechanical thermal breaks are
more efficient compared to thermal
breaks made with glue.
- Triple-contact joints provide 2
times more weathertightness
than those of the competition.
D METAL REINFORCEMENT PLATES
- Provide stronger fastening for hinges
and struts. These 14-gauge plates are
2 times thicker than 20-gauge plates
used by other manufacturers.
E WOOD END BLOCKS
- Provide a thermal break that is more
effective than steel end caps which
form a thermal bridge.
- As structural elements of the sections,
the kiln-dried pine wood end blocks
are installed at the outer ends of the
section. They are stronger than insulation
covered with a steel cap.
F LAG SCREW SYSTEM
- Provides much better fastening of
the end hinges. The lag screws engage
8 threads into the wood, compared to
a self-tapping screw going through a
steel end cap engaging only about
2 or 3 threads.
1 Aluminum walls
- Thickness of 0.023” (0.60 mm)
- Pre-painted aluminum with five coats of protective finish. Baked-on
polyester paint. Can be repainted and is corrosion-resistant.
- Woodgrain finish on both sides of the door.
2 1 ¾" (44.5 mm) insulated door with high-pressure injected polyurethane foam
ensuring a high thermal-resistance rating of R-16 (RSI 2.8 or k= 0.357 W/m2K)
and the solidity of a composite material.
3 InterLokTM joints between each section:
- Mechanical joints ensure stronger sections with walls of each panel
mechanically interlocked (not only bonded by the polyurethane).
- Mechanical thermal break avoids heat transfer between the interior
and exterior walls of each section.
- Triple-contact joint prevents air infiltration.
4 U-shaped tubular bottom weatherstripping made of thermoplastic
elastomer (TPE) ensures the weathertightness of the threshold.
R emains flexible and watertight during cold weather, to -62°F (-52°C).
5 Flexible top weatherstripping 2 ½” (64 mm) and aluminum extrusion
for aluminum doors of 10’ (3048 mm) wide and over.
6 Wood end blocks made of kiln-dried pine (grade 4). With our lag screw system,
ensure better fastening of the end hinges. They also provide a thermal break
which prevents thermal bridging.
7 14-gauge steel reinforcement plates placed inside the door for solidly attaching
hinges and struts.
Door weight: 1.55 lb/ft2 (7.6 kg/m2)

|Hardware options|| |
|Precision end bearing plate 3||For 650 lb (250 kg) doors and over, to provide stronger support for the opening system of the door.|
|Double hinges||Recommended for doors 14’ and wider, for a more stable mounting system.|
|11-gauge hinges||For very wide and very heavy doors, |
1 000 lb (453 kg) and over
|12-gauge continuous angle||Provides stronger attachment of the tracks on the wall.|
|1 1⁄4” (30 mm) solid shart||Provides more strength to the spring system.|
|Bridge strut||Ensures better resistance to wind load.|
|Safety bottom brackets||For a safer door system. If the lifting cables break, these brackets stop the fall of |
|Tension bridge reinforcement||For very wide doors (18’ 3” wide and over), prevent warping of the steel door sections, meaning the curving of sections which can be caused by indoor and outdoor temperature differences.|
|Precision rollers||Machined steel: recommended for heavy doors and dusty environments.|
Black nylon: made of rigid plastic, they reduce the noise of the door in motion.
Rubber: ensure smooth rolling and are recommended to reduce the noise of the door in motion (ideal for condo or apartment). NB-SS: with a stainless stem, ideal for car washes.
|C-shaped or bumper springs||For a softer stop, they are recommended for all manually-operated doors with a high-lift track or a full vertical track.|
|Pusher springs||Highly recommended for large size doors with a standard lift with a Jackshaft opener installed beside the door. They ensure the good tautness of the lifting cables when the door is operating.|
|Chain hoist||For easier closing and opening of a door operated manually.|
|"Z" or "L“ style track guards||Protect the tracks in high-traffic areas (ex.: forklifts).|
|High-cycle springs||Recommended for intense uses of more then 50 operation cycles per day. Vary from 25,000 to 200,000 cycles.|
A RICH PALETTE OF COLORS
The G-1000 model is available in 10 colors, such as Grey, Savana, Tundra, Blue Heron, and Evergreen. It is coated with polyester-based baked paint that resists corrosion. This model features a unique texture reminiscent of rustic wood grain, and customers may choose from 2 types of embossing, and 2 to 4 horizontal grooves that can molded into each panel. The G-1000 commercial door is made of 1 ¾" thick aluminum. It is injected with polyurethane foam, which ensures a thermal insulation factor of R-16. As a result, given that the hardware supports much less weight, the door system will last longer. If you need an oversize garage door, the G-1000 is the most logical choice.
