The Overhead Door Brand's 2019 Year in Review

 

For the Overhead DoorBrand, 2019 started on a positive note with Remodeling's 2019 Cost vs. Value Report revealing garage door replacements were once again ranked one of the top returns on investment among all home improvements nationwide. As the year continued, the brand launched several leading-edge products, received national recognition for its superior products and appeared on a hit HGTV series.

 

Product Launches Making a Splash in 2019

 

●     OHD Anywhere®. OHD Anywhere® continues to expand its compatibility with existing products and is now fully-integrated with the Overhead Door® Legacy® 650/850 and Destiny® garage door openers. The technology was made compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa this year, enabling users to control and monitor their garage doors by voice using a variety of commands for the ultimate convenience.

 

●     Thermacore Model 196. The new Thermacore® model features a Microgroove panel design that showcases a modern, profiled wave structure with horizontal grooves— creating a big exterior design splash, thanks to its striking light and shade effect. Model 5740 is available in three metallic colors — Black Frost, Silver, and Dark Bronze — and comes in a flush design, which boasts a smooth, non-textured finish.

 

●     Wireless Wall Console. The console reduces installation time and provides more placement flexibility than ever before. Requiring absolutely no wiring, the accessory offers customers an attractive design highlighted by an optional pulsing blue back-light. It also offers a 'Jogger Button,' delaying the closing of the door. Homeowners can press it once for a 10-second delay or press it up to three times for a maximum 30-second delay to exit the garage safely.

 

●     Wood Grain Options for Traditional Steel Models. The Traditional Steel Collection has expanded its product offerings with the addition of Walnut and Mission Oak wood grain options for Models 170, 171, 175, 180, 181 and 185. The new design choices provide homeowners with customization options to elevate their home's curb appeal without sacrificing the durability expected of the collection's high quality steel.

 

●     RapidFreeze™ 997. RapidFreeze™ 997 is an interior fabric high speed freezer and cooler door that features an insulated curtain, along with other cutting edge engineering design elements, to provide a thermal barrier to prevent conductive or convective cooling loss across the door. It joins Overhead Door™ Brand's lineup of Interior High Speed Fabric doors, filling the market's need for a door built on application-based configurations proven to help address various temperature dependent site problems before they can occur.

 

●     Model 671S EverServe™ Springless Rolling Security Grille System. This year the Overhead Door™ Brand has introduced the newest addition to its Rolling Security Grille product line. Model 671S boasts an advanced 300,000 cycle door system limited warranty that is 15 times the standard of established products in the Rolling Security Grille product line. With an upward coiling system built with premium curtain materials, this springless security grille allows maximized air movement and visibility while also ensuring the highest level of security benefits for customers. 

 

●     Universal Remote. One of the most innovative opener accessories, the 4-Button Universal Remote allows customers to operate openers and gate receivers from a variety of brands and models that date back to 1993 on a single device, bridging the gap between the past and present. For business owners, this product also minimizes inventory needs in the warehouse and on the service truck.

●     2019 Women's Choice Award®. For the eighth consecutive year, the Overhead Door Brand has earned this award presented by WomenCertified® for America's Most Recommended National Garage Door Brand, demonstrating its long-standing trusted reputation among women consumers.

As Seen On…

 

●     Roamilicious. Overhead Door Brand teamed up with Atlanta-based food, travel and lifestyle blogger Malika Bowling to replace her old and heavy garage doors on her home.
