Martin Door Manufacturing has partnered in a unique solar test home in Utah, being done in anticipation of showing the benefits of energy efficiency for upcoming use by the Discovery Channel and local TV.
Martin Garage Doors donated an insulated powder coat steel door to the project. The door is one of a number of unique products being installed on a home, which is expected to illustrate the benefits of solar technology as part of a new wave of energy efficient products.
Energy readings of the home are constantly being monitored and analyzed. Project manager, Ned Hart was eager to note that the thermal images of the home showed the concrete was radiating more heat than the garage door.
The donated garage door included a new double pane windows option, now available on a Martin Garage Doors. The powder coat door was done in an RAL brown red color.
Michael Martin, director of Advertising for Martin Garage Door, oversaw the installation and spoke about the benefits of the new door on video being shot for use on the TV program.
