Why Haas Door?

Quality people make a quality product.

Haas Door Company has been manufacturing top quality garage doors in Northwest Ohio since 1954. We are locally owned, and our products exhibit unsurpassed quality and workmanship. When you employ quality people, and they utilize quality manufacturing processes, you produce quality products. We call ourselves “The Haas Door Family” and that’s the way we operate.

We manufacture doors crafted of aluminum or steel, featuring a wide range of R-values. Our doors keep noise, weather and intruders out of your home or business. We even offer certified wind load options up to 200 mph.

Choice is important, so we offer a wide variety of door styles with a range of thicknesses, widths, heights, surface treatments, colors and options. With Haas Door, you can create your own unique design that meets your specific requirements.
Our Commitment

Environmental Responsibility
Haas Door Company manufactures all our garage doors in the U.S. and is committed to providing quality products that are safe for our customers and friendly to our environment. Haas doors are made from steel that contains 80% recycled material. A rigid vinyl thermal break, made with recycled materials, separates each door section to eliminate metal-to-metal contact and the transfer of temperature.

Haas Door uses CFC-free polyurethane insulation to craft some of most energy-efficient doors on the market.

We have an ongoing process to gain efficiency and reduce waste, including a recycling program for scrap metal, cardboard and plastic. Raw material packaging is reused or recycled whenever possible. And we carefully select suppliers that are regional to minimize fuel consumption and cost.

Haas Door continually works with our suppliers to find ways to improve the performance and environmental friendliness of our products. 
Commitment to Quality
Haas Door is committed to industry standards for quality and safety through our membership in the Door and Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA).

Every raw material used in our doors is inspected daily for quality. Steel is checked for thickness and finish. The high-density CFC-free polyurethane foam is tested continuously on each production line to insure the correct density, blend of material and cure time result in the specified calculated R-Value. 

Samples of manufactured doors are tested for quality and durability. Doors are opened and closed thousands of times to test the performance and endurance of the sections, hinges, springs, cables, rollers, bottom seals and track. Strength is measured using two separate tests. Individual sections are subjected to a dead load test and complete doors are wind load tested.

We perform real-world tests of current doors and prototype doors in various locations around the country. These are monitored for durability and performance. Independent laboratories test specific components to ensure that quality standards are met. 

The Haas Door Difference

Polyurethane Foam Construction
The polyurethane foam in a Haas door section is fully enclosed inside the steel skins and is protected from losing its R-Value. This design puts the insulation properties of polyurethane foam way ahead of polystyrene foam for performance and value.

Polyurethane foam is a two-part system. It begins with two chemical blends that, when mixed together, expand and cure to fill the garage door panel. During the expansion, the foam completely fills the inside of the panel and becomes fully adhered to the steel skins of the door. This forms a composite structure that is of exceptional strength and rigidity. Polyurethane foams are very stable when fully enclosed inside a door section.

Polyurethane foams are used as insulation in garage door panels, roof insulation on commercial buildings, wall insulation in newer high efficiency homes, office chairs, refrigerators, freezers, walk-in coolers, furniture and in automobiles for dashboards, armrests, suspension bushings and other components.

Polystyrene Foam Construction
Polystyrene foam board is used as insulation in garage door panels, in homes as a vapor barrier and as a packing material. This rigid foam board must be attached to or inserted into the door section. Polystyrene board is used on 2400, 2500 and Ribbed Steel models.

Insulation Testing
The factors that affect the insulation properties of a garage door depend on the materials used, the design of the sections and the air gaps (leaks) between the section joints and the door jambs. Inch for inch, polyurethane foams surpass polystyrene foams for insulation values. Polyurethane foam is used on most Haas doors.

When comparing, be sure to look at the R-Value of the installed door rather than the “core value,” which is the R-Value of the insulation only. Thermal performance testing is performed using established test methods. Independent laboratories usually perform these tests. The test performed duplicates the normal installation conditions of a 10’ x 10’ Haas garage door.

Test performed by Architectural Testing, Inc. York PA
*ANSI/NAGDM 105-1992 test
** Inside room temperature 68 degrees F. and outside temperature 18 degrees F.
*** Gas cost based on $2.25 per 1000 c.f. At 80% efficiency.

Insulating with polyurethane foam provides a superior product with higher insulation value and a stronger unitized door section.
