Press release date: May 10, 2013

DALLAS – Overhead Door Corporation will display several must-see products at this year's IDAExpo™ in Nashville, Tenn., that will add value to distributors' residential and commercial garage door offerings.

Overhead Door will highlight a mix of high-end residential door offerings designed to enhance curb appeal and new commercial doors with some of the most advanced options on the market.

"We are prepared to make this year's IDAExpo™ a success for all Overhead Door distributors in attendance," said Joe Dachowicz, vice president of marketing for Overhead Door. "We've been working hard to give our distributors the products they need to grow their business and meet marketplace demands."

Located at booth #939, the Overhead Door display will feature popular residential design options including the Signature Carriage Collection of hand-crafted, Amish wood doors; the Modern Aluminum Collection, which was specifically designed for contemporary homes and is made of durable corrosion-resistant aluminum and light-filtering glass; and, the Impression Collection®, a line of fiberglass doors that give the look of real wood without the maintenance. In addition, a combination of Overhead Door belt-, chain- and screw-drive garage door openers will be on display, including the Legacy® 800, Odyssey® 1000 and 1200, and the Destiny® 1200. 

The Battery Back-up, a new product released in April 2013 that provides reliable garage door operation when there is a power outage, will be the highlight of garage door opener accessories on display. In addition, show visitors will be able to get hands-on experience with the Advanced Wall Console, an add-on that gives homeowners control of door operation, access security and lighting features. The Door Report™, a remote that emits a beep and a flashing light confirming that the garage door is closed, will also be on display.

Two new commercial door options will be featured: the Stormtite™ AP model 627 and the Thermacore® AP model 850, to be released on May 17, 2013.  Both doors are acclaimed for their thermal efficiencies. The Stormtite™ AP model 627 offers the most advanced thermal performance values on the market for a rolling steel door, while the Thermacore® AP model 850 provides the most advanced thermal performance values published by any major U.S. manufacturer of three-inch insulated commercial sectional doors. The RapidSlat® Advanced Rolling Service Door and the Rolling Counter Door System with CDX™ will also be on display.

"Our commercial products team has been hard at work developing two state-of-the-art options in commercial door offerings from Overhead Door," said Dachowicz. "Introducing the Stormtite™ AP model 627 and the soon-to-be released Thermacore® AP model 850 at the biggest event in the garage door industry demonstrates the work that solidifies Overhead Door as an innovator in the commercial door industry."
