What Is R-Value And Is It Important For A Garage Door?

R-Value is a measure of thermal efficiency. The higher the R-value the greater the insulating properties of the door. We offer several door styles to meet your insulated garage door needs for both residential and commercial applications.

The higher the R-value number, the better the insulating properties of the material. However, an R-16 value is not twice as good as an R-8 Value.

A value of R-16 offers a 5% reduction in heat flow and a 5% improvement in energy efficiency than a value of R-8, not 50%.

No matter the R-Value, an insulated garage door will reduce the amount of heat flow and improve energy efficiency of a home.
