Clopay Ultra-grain Avante Collection

Clopay Building Products’ contemporary glass and aluminum Avante Collection door with the new ultra-grain faux woodgrain print finish has been named one of the “Best New Exterior Products” of 2008 by Custom
Builder magazine. According to the company, ultra-grain delivers the best of both worlds: the realism
of wood with the low maintenance benefits of insulated steel. But unlike real wood, it is UV resistant and impervious to moisture, so it won’t fade, rot, split, shrink, separate, or crack. The Avante coating is manufactured utilizing a ‘dye-sublimation’ process analogous to the making of a tattoo. A base coat is applied and then a high definition wood grain pattern is baked in creating a layered wood grain pattern
as deep as the coating itself. Clopay has invested in a system that prints the grain in two directions, both
horizontally and vertically, following the stiles and rails, for a more authentic natural wood appearance.
The result is an extremely durable coating. No special maintenance is required to preserve the finish beyond standard garage door recommendations to wash and rinse the surface periodically.
Two colors are available – light cherry and dark cherry.
