Do you need an insulated garage door?
A question often asked by most Aussie homeowners is, why should I insulate my garage door?
It’s a good question, especially for a room that is hardly used apart from parking a car or two, and storing random household items, it’s hardly a living space.
We all know that insulation keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer and that all modern homes have insulation in their roof space. Why doesn’t it follow then that your garage door isn’t insulated as well?
What you may not realise is that your garage door is arguably the largest door opening in your home and it can also be an area of extreme heat and energy loss. In Australia, it is common for a garage door to occupy at least 1/3 of the surface area of the front of your home and if it isn’t insulated your garage space is an area that can facilitate the transfer of extreme temperatures into your home.
Ask yourself this — Is your front door sealed? Are all your windows weathered sealed? How does it feel sitting next to a window with a cold draft coming through during winter? Now multiply the size of this gap 100 times and you have yourself an uninsulated garage door.
If you’re looking to create a more energy-efficient home, or thinking about converting your garage space into a home office or gym, it’s time to consider insulating your garage door.

Polyurethane insulation is one of the most effective insulation materials available and is as much as 30% more effective than Polystyrene insulation.
At Gryphon Garage Doors our panels can reduce up to 90% of this temperature exchange. Insulated panels also help to reduce street noise and are dramatically stronger than a standard single sheet garage door.
The Pinch Resistant design helps to prevent the likelihood of fingers being caught in between the panels when the door is being operated.
