					              Creativity Finds No Limits At Martin Door

A unique trio of Martin Doors, installed as part of a home renovation project in
Holladay, Utah, are testament to the concept every Martin Garage Door is a
customized door.
If you want it, Martin can likely build it---even if it's outside the frame of a
conventional garage door.




The extruded aluminum Archest doors feature real copper metal panels, use a
custom powdercoat color, not available in the catalog, and also feature a
unique bronze color glass. The result is a trio of hybrid doors, sure to turn
heads.

Intermountain Martin Doors installed the doors. Owner Jeff Barker points out
the evolution to a unique door took a path unlike any other install he's ever
done.
An architect overseeing the renovation, originally planned on putting three
wood doors on the home but was talked out of it when builder Brian Dowsept,
suggested the doros would be especially high maintenance because of their
exposure to the sun.
Once options were opened, it was the homeowner's son who got involved and
helped develop the unique door. Taking a picture of the home, the boy----
described as a computer geek---accessed pictures from Martin Door's Design-
Online program, which he superimposed into the picture of their
home.
Initially, Barker said there was sentiment to install copper doors, to match with
flashing on the home, but it evolved to a powdercoat Archcrest door, in a
powdercoat color matching the entry fence and elements of the home. Martin
officials were happy to find the color and special order it. Then the idea of
taking out the aluminum panels in the doors and replacing them with copper
came up and Barker said customer service officials at Martin didn't say no to
that either.
To take it a step further, Martin officials build several sample panels of the
unique door, which when presented to the owner and builder, cemented the
job.
Martin's ability to create a unique door for each customer, just took on
unlimited possibilities.
Scott says Martin utilizes either acrylic, tempered or laminated glass, all of
which offer safety options, limiting the risk of broken glass in the case of an
accident or incident.
The engineering director said Martin Door Manufacturing does not use glass
that breaks into chards.
The laminated glass sourced by Martin comes with two pieces of glass
laminated together with piece of plastic between the layers, similar to a car
windshield. This adds a measure of security nearly as strong as if it were solid
aluminum.

Some other brand doors simply take a commercial style service station door
and convert it into a residential door, with little or no regard to homeowner
safety. When Martin designed its all glass door, it did so with safety in mind.
Martin residential garage doors come with over 30 key safety and long life
upgrades standard.
