Materials & Construction
Every component and feature on the Wayne Dalton C-24 doors are designed, engineered, and constructed to enhance the building's architectural beauty. This assures smooth, efficient operation, long and trouble-free operation, and saves installation time and effort. Unique 2” x 3” box-stile design, plus tongue-and-groove construction, adds vertical stability and strength. Stiles are continuously-bonded to the skin surface with high-strength adhesive, resulting in the strongest possible unit. The surface is ribbed for even more strength. Independent tests show that model C-24 sectional doors are significantly stronger compared to leading competitors.
Wayne Dalton's C-24 steel sectional doors feature pre-finished 24-gauge hot-dipped galvanized sections roll-formed to a full 2" thickness for ultimate strength and durability. The 3" wide boxed stiles are adhered with adhesive, preventing rust and leakage associated with rivets. Standard bottom door seal along with optional seals on the perimeter and between sections greatly reduce air leakage, adding to the thermal efficiency of the building.
Additional options include insulation and weather stripping that provide a U-value of 0.13 and an R-value of 7.60; factory installed vision lites or full view sections; electric operator; and special engineering to meet wind load requirements.
*Wayne Dalton uses a calculated door section R-Value for insulated doors.
