New Notch on AMARR DecraTrim Inserts Indicates Correct Installation

New Notch on DecraTrim Inserts Indicates Correct Installation

Memo 56-13
July 8, 2013

To avoid accidentally installing certain DecraTrim window inserts upside down, the following products will soon be manufactured with a .04” deep notch indicating the bottom of the insert: Stockton (20), Waterford (25), Prairie (21), Thames (30), Nile (6), and Madeira (5). This notch will not be visible once the window insert is installed in a window frame.

This is a rolling transition that will be implemented based on the depletion of existing window insert inventory. You will begin to see this notch on some product as early as mid-July, but it will take a few months for it to appear on all applicable inserts.

The chart below shows Amarr’s current Medium Woodgrain and Dark Woodgrain product availability and the begin order dates for the newly announced dual-directional woodgrain product.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. A faster-than-expected depletion of inventory of the existing woodgrain colors and an extended period for development of the new dual-directional colors has impacted Amarr’s scheduled transition from the existing Medium Woodgrain and Dark Woodgrain to the new dual-directional woodgrain colors.

Throughout the coming weeks, we will continue to keep you updated on the status of existing woodgrain product availability and the dual-directional woodgrain transition.

Ancillary Woodgrain Items

The existing window frames, inserts and vinyl stop of the current Medium and Dark woodgrain colors will complement the new dual-directional woodgrain colors.  An item description change for these items will occur on July 22, 2013.  Specifically, Medium Woodgrain items will change description to Golden Oak, and Dark Woodgrain items will be named Mahogany.  New ancillary items will be set up for the Walnut color.  Touch-up paint will be available for the new dual-directional colors in August.

Two-Tone Amarr Classica Garage Doors Houston

Posted on by Preferred Doors in AMARR Leave a comment

Amarr is excited to announce 42 two-tone color combinations will be available on Amarr’s one-of-a-kind Classica Collection effective July 1, 2013.  Two-tone colored doors create more distinction and definition to the unique Classica designs and enhance the curb appeal of a home.

Product Details
Classica two-tone color options are produced by factory-painting our steel Classica doors.

  • The panel area of a Classica design is painted with one of 8 paint options:  True White, Almond, Wicker Tan, Sandtone, Terratone, Dark Brown, Hunter Green, and Gray.  These paints were selected to match existing and readily available Amarr touch-up paint.
  • The trim area of a Classica design remains the original steel section color available today in the Classica offering:  True White, Almond, Wicker Tan, Sandtone, Terratone, and Dark Brown.  This trim area is not factory-painted because if painted, the paint may wear away due to the rubbing of vinyl stop molding as a door opens and closes.
  • The top section of a two-tone Classica door with glass is not painted and is always the color of the original steel, as there is no panel area on this section when glass is installed and just the trim is visible.  Window frames always match the steel color on the trim.  To have a two-tone contrast look in the top section, order DecraTrim inserts in a color that matches the panel.
  • The factory-paint process used is a spray-gun paint process.  Variations in the edge of painted panel area are inherent in the two-tone painting process and are not a quality defect.
  • The existing finish warranties for Classica are maintained for the two-tone color combinations.
  • Two-tone colors are available in all constructions of Classica – Classica 1000, Classica 2000 and Classica 3000.
  • Manufacturing lead time is standard lead time + 1 extra week.

Amarr Commercial Overhead Garage Doors Model 2500 Smooth Ribbed Steel

Posted on by Preferred Doors in AMARR, garage door repair, Garage Doors, Overhead Doors, steel garage doors Leave a comment

Amarr is pleased to announce that we have added the Commercial Smooth Ribbed Steel to the Model 2500 commercial sectional door line up. The smooth ribbed profile will replace the wood grain profile as the standard offering for our 25-Gauge Pan Doors. Wood grain will continue to be offered as an option.

The Model 2500 is priced so there is approximately 10% savings vs. the 24-gauge Model 2400. This makes the Model 2500 the perfect option for large projects or any project on a tight budget.

While the woodgrain embossment provides a texture that resists and hides field damage, the smooth steel profile is the industry standard and is what is specified on the majority of projects. The deep ribbed profile matches Amarr’s and most competitors’ 20, 24, and 25-gauge profiles in appearance enabling the use of the 25oo on retrofit jobs to match other doors that are already in place.

The Model 2500 is offered in sizes up to 14’2” x 14’ and is available with a vinyl backed insulation option. Larger door size requirement will use the Model 2400.

If you have any questions, please contact Preferred Doors.
