Repurposing Old Garage Doors

Repurposing Old Garage Doors

If you thought the only place for an old garage door was the junkyard, think again. Southern Material Handling Inc. got creative when it came to the “disposal method” of a few Wayne Dalton Aluminum Full-View garage door panels from Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Station.

The transparent glass panels were donated to a local elementary school in Virginia Beach to fully adorn a greenhouse on the school’s property (pictured above). The elementary school held a dedication ceremony for the conservatory at the beginning of June, and we’re told it will be incorporated into the student’s curriculum. 

repurposing old garage doors for office

One of our Ohio dealers, Great Lakes Dock and Door, removed Wayne Dalton Aluminum Full-View doors from an old jobsite and rather than dispose of them, the company installed the doors in the office to create a welcoming, open atmosphere. This is a nationwide trend we are currently seeing in office spaces due to the sleek, modern aesthetic of glass garage doors. Other popular locations for glass garage doors include restaurants, bars and auto dealerships.
