GAREX doors are made of steel or aluminum cladding that is covered with a baked polyester paint. Steel plates are inserted into the panel at locations dedicated to hardware. Exclusive XPS extruded polystyrene end caps are inserted at the ends of the panels prior to pressure injection of polyurethane insulation.
All these operations increase the rigidity, mechanical resistance, insulation, quality of the panel and better resistance to moisture (the extruded polystyrene XPS end block is rot-proof).
Components Cladding: Pre-painted steel or pre-painted aluminum. Hardware: galvanized steel or steel or steel & nylon or aluminum or melting. Insulation of polyurethane. End Block of polystyrene. PVC. Adhesive.

Since 1991, Garex specializes in the manufacture of metal garage doors insulated with injected polyurethane foam whose advanced design offers very high energy efficiency. All doors whether residential, commercial or industrial are crafted with attention to detail by an experienced team committed to product quality and customer satisfaction. Our superior quality doors are offered in a variety of designs and colors to meet all requirements and at competitive prices.
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA SHEET
The steel sheet is galvanized (Z-180) on both sides (outside and inside of the door) and the aluminum sheet is covered with a chromate pre-treatment, a primer coat and two baked on finish coats of paint.
A weatherstrip profile is inserted between the panels to obtain a perfect seal*. With the foam pressure-injected polyurethane insulation makes the composite panels lightweight and robust. Extruded polystyrene end block XPS resistant to moisture and mildew are inserted at both ends of the panels. Furthermore, these end blocks offer better bolting resistance** and increase the rigidity of the panels.At the bottom, a ‘’U’’ shape ultra-resistant weatherstrip is inserted in a PVC profile to create a perfect seal with the shape of the floor.
