Wayne Dalton 8500

High R Value Garage Door

The Wayne Dalton 8500 is our best-insulated residential garage door.  The 8500 is durably made with two layers of steel surrounding a thick layer of foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation. This door is offered in five classic and contemporary designs and a wide selection of painted and bi-directional wood grain finishes.

The Model 8500 is our highest insulated residential garage door with an R-value of 16.22 using polyurethane foamed-in-place insulation, which can improve your home’s thermal efficiency, block street noise and make the door operate more quietly. Heavy-gauge steel wrap around end caps trim-out door edges for better appearance, improved strength and damage-protection of the insulation.
