Clopay black garage doors win HANDY Innovation Award

Cincinnati, OH -- 

Clopay’s black steel garage door with “cool paint” technology is one of 20 new products to be recognized with a 2014 HANDY Innovation Award.  Now in its 14th year, the HANDY Innovation Awards honor products that showcase initiative, creativity, invention, reinvention and eco-innovation.

Clopay earned an Honorable Mention for bringing classy back to the steel garage door color wheel.

HANDY editor Jenny Stanley said, “Keeping up with color trends is fun, especially when the color is rich, classy black. But sometimes, outdoor surfaces like a garage door can't handle the deep hue because it absorbs too much heat...until now. Thanks to Clopay’s new thermal-reflective paint technology, its Gallery® Collection and Classic Line steel garage doors are available in rich, glossy black so homeowners can keep up with the sophisticated color trend.”

The 2014 Innovation Award-winning products will be featured in the Winter 2014 issue of HANDY Magazine, as well as in the HANDY TOOLBOX e-newsletter and at
