Our Panel Foam Garage Door Insulation kits contain UL certified Expanded PolyStyrene (EPS) panels with High Impact PolyStyrene (HIPS) laminated plastic facer for durability and ease of cleaning. The panels are cut to fit the inside channels of the garage door frame rails to make a flush, insulated panelized system that look great and helps to reduce dirt, dust and noise. The weight of the kits will generally not effect the operation of the doors if your springs are in good condition and properly adjusted. Manufactured from a non-toxic earth-friendly material, these kits are UL Certified, moisture resistant and carries a 1-year Warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Q: Does the Panel Foam Garage Door Insulation come with plastic caps or ends on the material to give it a finished look, like a picture frame? A: No. The Panel Foam Garage Door Insulation has Expanded PolyStyrene (EPS) on one side that goes against the garage door skin and the other side has a High Impact PolyStyrene (HIPS) laminated plastic facer for durability and easy cleaning. White plastic retainer clips are sold separately to give your installation a clean professional look for the vertical edges.
2. Q: How do you attach the Panel Foam Garage Door Insulation to the garage door, does it have double-sided tape or glue? A: No. The Panel Foam Garage Door Insulation panels "tuck" inside the garage door recessed panel horizontal and vertical edges. The panels have "kerf" cuts on the back that allow the panels to be bent slightly so that you can tuck them in. No tape, screws or glue is needed, the panels are held in place by a "friction fit" with the garage door frame edges.
3. Q: Would you recommend using the Panel Foam Garage Door Insulation and the Reflective Foil product together to get a better insulation solution on the garage door? A: No. The Reflective Foil product needs and "air gap" between the material and the door skin to create a Radiant Barrier. By not having this air gap you reduce the "R-value" by more than 50%. The additional weight of both products on the garage door may require having the lift springs adjusted or replaced with heavier duty. It is recommended to use one product or the other, but not both products together.
4. Q: I have a wooden door, will any of your garage door insulation products work on this type of door? A: Maybe. If you have standard metal doors that has the wood fascia attached to the outside door skin all of our products will work. If you have an older fiberboard wooden door that has no extruded panel edges to tuck material into neither the Fiberglass or Panel Foam will work. The Reflective Foil product may attach to your door with double-sided tape and possibly having to use screws as well, however the air gap between the material and the door may be an issue and possibly may reduce the "R-value".
5. Q: I have live in Florida and have hurricane braces on my door, will any of your products work on my door? A: Yes, however most new style hurricane metal doors have smaller panel heights, usually 16"H instead of the 20" and they can be heavily braced with both horizontal and vertical braces. The bottom line is you can install any of our products on these type of doors it will just be a little more work depending on which product you choose. For instance you should be able to "slide" the Fiberglass product behind the braces without removing the braces. If you choose the Panel Foam or Reflective Foil you will have to remove the bracing. NOTE: Do not take off all the braces at once, only take of the braces you need to install the insulation and put the brace back on. If you remove all the braces you may get your door out of alignment.
6. Q:I have a new home and my garage gets extremely hot in the afternoon, almost unbearable in the summer. I have standard garage doors that face West and get direct afternoon sunlight. Also, the attic above the garage does not have insulation. Is the heat problem more a non-insulated attic issue on non-insulated door issue? A: Both. With both the garage door and attic not being insulated, both are contributing to your heat in the garage. The garage door is the easiest to fix with any of our insulation products. Once the door is insulated then determine how much of an effect that has made and then contact a reputable insulation company to discuss your attic options.
7. Q:Will the additional weight of the insulation on my garage door require the springs or opener torque to be adjusted? A: Maybe. Depending on the quality, age and maintenance performed on both your lift springs and garage door opener, adjustment may be needed. Our experience is usually no adjustment needs to be made, but there is a chance.
8. Q:Will I have a roll up door at my shop that faces the West sunlight in the afternoon and gets extremely hot. Is there a product for this type of door? A: Not that we have found. Because this type of door "rolls up into itself" the Panel Foam Insulation is not flexible enough to do that or even attach to the door. You could tape the Reflective Foil product to the door but there would not be an air gap between the material and the door so your "R-value" would decrease, and the material may be damaged over time as the doors are operated. There is no way to attach the Fiberglass product to this type of door.
9. Q:Is there an expectation of how much cooler in the summer the garage will be with the insulation installed on the garage door? Is there a rating system somewhere that can give me an idea of how many degrees cooler it might be with the insulation? A: Unfortunately there is no system to determine exact temperature differences you will experience with any of our insulation products. The products are rated with an "R" or resistance value by a certified 3rd party testing company in a laboratory environment as required by law. An "R" value is then assigned by the testing company. The "R" value is a measurement of thermal conductivity, and describes the rate that heat energy is transferred through a material. The higher the "R" value, the better the insulation material.
We can't tell you how much of a difference the temperature will be with the insulation installed on your door because of a variety of issues, such as: is your attic insulated? Are your exterior walls insulated? Is there a heat source in the garage like a dryer, hot water heater or refrigerator? Is there significant air leakage around your garage door? All of these issues are factors into how much a difference the temperature will be affected.
