Clopay® COACHMAN™ Garage Door Collection

The Look of Wood with the Ease of Steel

If you want the look of wood but prefer the ease of care and durability of steel, you will love the COACHMAN® Collection. These doors have the look of authentic painted wood but are actually made of durable, low-maintenance steel. They are configured in a charming carriage house style, but with the convenience of automatic overhead operation, and are perfect for a wide variety of architectural home styles.

The steel surface is protected through a tough coating system that includes a hot-dipped galvanized layer and baked on primer and top coat. With your choice of Intellicore® polyurethane or polystyrene for insulation, you can improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort year-round.

The COACHMAN® Collection comes in four base and overlay colors that can be mixed to achieve the desired look, as well as multiple glass options including clear, frosted, seeded, and insulated glass. They come in a variety of design configurations, too, so you can find something that perfectly complements your home.

The Modern Steel™ Collection is a beautiful modern design option, as seen on this unique home.
