Warmer. Quieter. Stronger.

Garage doors featuring Intellicore® insulation technology represent the ultimate smart choice for homeowners. Intellicore by IDEAL Door is a proprietary polyurethane foam that is injected into a garage door, expanding to fill the entire structure. The result is a door with incredible strength and durability. Its dense insulation also produces a quieter door, while its industry-leading R-values (up to 20.4) provide year-round comfort and improved energy efficiency.


Intellicore-equipped doors have some of the highest R-values in the industry, up to 20.4. In cold climates, Intellicore helps keep your garage and home warmer. Alternatively, in hot climates, it helps keep the warm air out. At its core, an IDEAL door with Intellicore is energy efficient, making your garage and home more comfortable all year long.


Intellicore-equipped doors are simply quieter. Just shake a non-insulated garage door and then an Intellicore door and you’ll hear a big difference in noise levels. This means that common occurrences, such as a ball hitting the garage door, will be uncommonly quiet with an Intellicore door.


Scientific tests show that an IDEAL garage door section featuring Intellicore insulation is nearly twice as strong as a polystyrene door section of the same thickness. This enhanced rigidity provides greater resistance to everyday wear and tear. Essentially, an IDEAL door with Intellicore will look better, longer.
