Wood Clad Garage Doors
April 7, 2016
Wood clad garage doors are a growing trend in the market for contemporary garage doors. Cladding a door in wood or faux wood can add an element of design to a home or business that is entirely unique and eye-catching. That is why architects and design enthusiasts love ArmRLite’s overhead sectional wood doors!
Wood Clad Garage Doors – Installation by Dynamic Dock & Door
The wood-clad garage door shown in the picture here was installed by Dynamic Dock & Door. Both the glass garage door and the wood-clad garage door were manufactured in the USA by ArmRLite, a women-led manufacturer of overhead sectional doors and roll-up doors.
The underlying frame of the wood-clad door carries an R-Value of 16. The cladding is comprised of cedar to match the home’s exterior façade.
Two great examples of ArmRLite wood garage doors are the Rosalia Wood Deluxe and the TimbRLite. The Rosalia Wood Deluxe model features a smooth exterior with ipe wood planks and is available with or without glass up to 24’-2” wide. This model is a great option for properties that want a rustic look but achieved using modern materials. TimbRLite offers a more sustainable wood garage door option up to 20’-2” wide and is wind load rated. The engineered wood used emphasizes the natural beauty found in real wood, while offering less maintenance. These panels come in over 25 finishes and dozens of design options.

Hurricane-Resistant Garage Doors—Wind Load Rated—Wood & Glass Options
ArmRLite offers wood and glass options on select models that are wind load rated up to 180mph making them practically hurricane-resistant. TimbRLite, CI, and Titan models, are aesthetically pleasing styles that will add value to the structure and comply with building codes in high wind areas.
Windload Rated Doors
ArmRLite makes it easy to order exact replacement sections or parts for our garage doors, regardless of model or fabrication year. ArmRLite has consistently manufactured strong doors for 60 years, and we do not modify or discontinue models making replacement parts impossible to find—an industry-standard we do not endorse. Whether you are looking for a replacement section on a door installed yesterday or 60 years ago, ArmRLite is here to help.
