Intellicore Insulation Technology

Warmer. Quieter. Stronger.

Garage doors featuring Intellicore® insulation technology represent the ultimate smart choice for homeowners. Clopay’s Intellicore is a proprietary polyurethane foam that is injected into a garage door, expanding to fill the entire structure. The result is a door with incredible strength and durability. Its dense insulation also produces a quieter door, while its industry-leading R-values (up to 20.4) provide year-round comfort and improved energy efficiency. Smart, indeed.

Warmer

COMFORT IN EVERY CLIMATE

Because of the significant insulation properties of Intellicore, every climate will benefit from keeping the

garage and living space warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. In addition to comfort, having less extreme temperatures to help appliances located in the garage perform more efficiently and reduce the chances of pipes freezing in the cold or stored liquids drying out from excessive heat.

Quieter

A Quieter Home is a Happier Home

The dense, sound-absorbing nature of Intellicore insulated doors provide quieter operation which translates to a more peaceful living space. Simply stated, quiet operation is a hallmark of a quality door. Early morning and late night door operation wont disturb sleeping babies or pets, not to mention your neighbors.

We performed a decibel test to analyze the differences in sound when a basketball hits a garage door at a consistent speed.  The non-insulated door came in at 96 decibels, while the Intellicore door was 80 decibels. Though 16 decibels doesn’t seem like a lot, the decibel scale is logarithmic (not linear which means our Intellicore Doors are actually 3 times quieter to your ear’s perception!]

Stronger

Built for the toughest neighborhoods

Our engineers exhaustively tested Intellicore insulated garage door sections and found them to be nearly twice as strong as a polystyrene door section of the same thickness. This enahanced rigidity provides greater resistance to everyday wear and tear. Broadly speaking, a Clopay door with Intellicore will look better and last longer when faced with the challenges the neighborhood throws at it.
