Clopay® Corporation Introduces VertiStack™ Clear Door
Innovative new compact stacking door maximizes ceiling space
while providing clear aesthetics.
Mason, OH –– Clopay® Corporation, a leader in closure products for commercial, residential, industrial, institutional, and retail applications, introduces the new VertiStack™ Clear Door, a unique compact door with vertically stacking sections, engineered to provide a clear, open ceiling and modern design. VertiStack Clear will be available in Clopay® Corporation’s Clopay, Cornell, and Cookson brands.
The door’s components take up minimal ceiling space, making room for mechanical, electrical, or plumbing fixtures, while the streamlined aesthetic brings the outside atmosphere in (and vice versa). Enabling building footprints to expand and encompass outside spaces makes VertiStack Clear a great choice for commercial establishments looking to embrace the natural environment, such as those in the hospitality industry, including restaurants, event venues, and more.
The product’s sleek look keeps lines and angles to a minimum and cleverly hides key mechanisms. “VertiStack Clear has no hinges or exposed tracks,” said Angela Quaglio, Product Manager, Clopay® Corporation. “The door is engineered to operate smoothly and quietly, so as not to disturb patrons while cycling. When open, the door’s sections can even be recessed into the ceiling, hiding them from view.”
Clear Choice for Energy Efficiency & Customization
Clear panels allow sunlight to fill interior spaces while the door is closed. To reduce air infiltration and keep building occupants comfortable, the door features built-in gaskets between the sections and a vinyl weather seal that clips into the guide channel. VertiStack Clear has been tested to ASTM E283 standards and meets the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC®) requirements for air infiltration, making the door an energy efficient choice.
Customizable to suit openings up to 14’ wide and 14’ tall, VertiStack Clear is available with glass, acrylic, or polycarbonate panels in tempered, frosted, insulated, and Low-E options in a variety of thickness from 1/8” to 5/8”. Specifiers may also choose from anodized finishes, including clear, black, bronze, and dark bronze, as well as paint finishes in chocolate, white, or bronze.
