BP – Glass Garage Doors & Entry Systems Inc., a provider of glass garage door technology and design, is proud to announce the company’s patent has been approved for the industry’s first fully insulated glass garage door. The patent has been approved for use in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Germany, UK, Spain, Italy, France and Australia.
“We have waited a long time for this day,” says Rob Reyes, president BP – Glass Garage Doors & Entry Systems. “After listening to our customers and the challenges they face when using glass garage doors for mixed use spaces, we now have a patented technology for doors to keep homes and business completely air- and water-tight when closed, in addition to conserving energy.”
The company developed these doors for many applications, such as live/work spaces and restaurants. The insulated doors are perfect for homeowners or businesses looking for open architectural design, with the ability to close off the space, air-tight, avoiding air and water infiltration, while conserving energy.
All BP – Glass Garage Doors are constructed from BP extruded aluminum alloy frames of superior strength and durability. The tensile strength is a minimum of 38 ski and approximately double the strength of standard 6063 aluminum alloy used by competitors. They are designed and installed to operate year after year under extremely harsh conditions, requiring very low maintenance.
BP – Glass Garage Door & Entry Systems products comply with California’s Title 24 data, which is required when engineering the perimeter of the Building Envelope or interior-use space that has air conditioning or heating. The company also offers over 200 glass types and configurations that meet or exceed LEED certification requirements by architects, designers, energy analysts and consulting engineers. The product line has been certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), not only for air and water leakage, but also U-factor, SHGC, and Visible Light Transmittance.
