Contemporary Garage Doors - Luminous

Apr. 24, 2018

While modern skyscrapers may at first appear simplistic, the real artwork lies within the detail in the glass and steel used to create the buildings. For Wayne Dalton, skyscrapers are not only something to be marveled but serve as the source of inspiration behind one of the sleekest garage door designs to hit the market — Luminous™.

One year ago, Wayne Dalton launched a residential Model 8450 Luminous and a commercial door Model 464 full-view glass. With no visible framework from the exterior, the doors produce an ultra-modern frameless appearance perfect for urban office environments, patio decks, restaurants, bars, and contemporary homes.

By mounting glass panels to an aluminum structure using the same type of adhesive as on skyscrapers, Wayne Dalton has been able to create a garage door that flows uninterrupted between indoor and outdoor spaces and integrates with the aesthetics of any structure for sleek, modern style.

As versatility continues to gain popularity in the garage door industry, Wayne Dalton dealer Discount Garage Doors Inc. installed two Luminous garage doors to sectionalize a local sports bar in Spring Hill, FL. Its sleek Opaque Black glass integrated seamlessly with the bar’s overall look and added a modern update just in time for a big football game!

To add a major curb appeal boost, GDI Garage Doors in Orange County, California, recently installed a Model 8450 garage door in Opaque White. The door effortlessly enhances this home’s sleek façade and minimalist layout.
