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.

Wayne Dalton Launches First-Ever High Speed Interior Freezer and Cooler Door, Model 887 ADV-Xtreme
Thermal barrier prevents conductive or convective cooling loss across the door, increasing overall efficiency of the workplace
November 12, 2019 – Wayne Dalton, a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial door solutions, has launched its first-ever high speed, high performance interior freezer and cooler door – Model 887 ADV-Xtreme. Ideal for food and beverage and other cold storage applications, Model 887 ADV-Xtreme offers a variety of problem-solving features that help address various temperature-dependent site issues before they can occur. Additionally, Model 887 ADV-Xtreme helps prevent conductive or convective cooling loss across the door due to its advanced thermal barrier.
“The behavior around a door can change dramatically depending on the time of year, whether it is a hot and humid summer or cold and dry winter. It is critical for facilities to have a solution like Model 887 ADV-Xtreme to perform in demanding and time critical applications,” said Wayne Dalton Director of Product Marketing Mark Sawicki.
Model 887 ADV-Xtreme’s insulated curtain, four guide seals, and a double bottom seal help prevent condensation or frost spots from forming on the curtain. To help combat the issue of freezing temperatures affecting door movement, the door features an active recirculating heated guide. The patent-pending guide is designed to help ensure the entire height of the door is at an appropriate temperature to further help prevent condensation, minimize dirt collection and help stop contamination of products placed close to the door.
“With numerous innovations created and experience acquired over the years, Wayne
Dalton continues to lead other manufacturers in developing solutions that focus on dealer and end user pain points to provide designs that are built with the highest level of quality in mind,” added Sawicki.
With opening speeds of up to 80 inches per second, Model 887 ADV-Xtreme is a fast-acting door that reduces wait time and increases the overall efficiency of the facility. Built for lasting durability, Model 887 ADV-Xtreme is equipped with a springless design that can withstand more than 1 million cycles, minimizing interruptions and downtime for maintenance.
For design flexibility, curtain color options available include Red, White, Blue and Gray. The bottom bar and guide are manufactured in Safety Yellow.

The high cycle motor also includes a built-in braking device and features a direct drive heavy-duty gearbox to help protect against uncontrolled curtain travel. The high cycle springless grille’s continuous rod curtain design contributes to durability and security.
Model 600 HC is available in steel, aluminum, or stainless steel construction, and comes in Steel, Clear Anodized, or Stainless Steel finishes. For additional color options and added customization, Wayne Dalton also offers approximately 200 RAL powder coat options to complement the exterior colors of any building.

The optional tinted panels – like the standard clear panels – also feature an unprecedented 7-‐year limited warranty, and assure customers of continued long-‐term product performance with proper maintenance.
Architects and builders of automobile dealerships, parking garages and other secured buildings are rapidly adopting high-‐speed doors to improve energy efficiency and enhance the flow of traffic.
