Posted by Overhead Door Company of Waterbury on Fri, May 10, 2013 @ 12:10 PM

Overhead Door Company of Waterbury is introducing the garage door emergency Battery Back-up. This new accessory is now available for the Destiny and Odyssey electric door openers. This Battery Back-up provides the homeowner with reliable garage door operation during severe weather, thunderstorms and blackouts. 


Battery Back-up When the power is out, the Battery Back-up will do the heavy lifting!

  •  Overhead Door's Battery Back-up, powered by Interstate Batteries.

  • The Battery Back-up is the accessory that can be easily installed and provides true peace of mind.

 The Battery Back-up accessory enables an opener to operate the garage door at 3.5 inches per second, and, in the event of an extended loss of electricity, the unit will run up to 50 cycles in a 24-hour period after initial power outage. 


With several mounting options available, this accessory is designed to be unobtrusive. It's charged and powered via a connector cable running between the opener and the unit, which means there is no need for it to be plugged into an outlet. The unit is equipped with an 8-AMP, sealed lead-acid battery (SLA) from Interstate, one of the nation's largest battery replacement companies, reaches full charge within 48 hours and has front facing LEDs that indicate charge status.

Offering Enhancements to Overhead Garage Door Lines

Posted by Overhead Door Company of Waterbury on Wed, May 01, 2013 @ 02:13 PM


Additions to Durafirm Collection, Thermacore and Traditional Steel Lines

Overhead Door Company of Waterbury has new design options to offer customers thanks to enhancements Overhead Door Corporation has made to three of its garage door lines.

The company has created a V5 stamp that mimics the look and feel of wainscoting, which will be available on the Durafirm Collection, Traditional Steel and Thermacore lines. A raised panel Ranch stamp is also now available on the Thermacore line, while decorative window inserts have been added to the Traditional Steel Collection.

“The inspiration for these enhancements came directly from listening to the needs of homeowners and distributors -- the new options combine the R-values that the market is demanding with the designs that are popular with today’s homeowners.”

Thermacore New Inserts

Overhead Door’s introduction of the V5 and Ranch stamps gives Overhead Door Company of Waterbury more options to offer consumers who want to customize their homes. In a design nod to wainscoting, the V5 stamp incorporates five vertical stiles and a faux wood grain aesthetic that is not only attractive, but adds strength to the Thermacore, Durafirm and Traditional Steel doors on which it’s incorporated. Meanwhile, the raised-panel Ranch stamp further expands the design offerings available in the Thermacore line and will be available with corresponding ranch windows.
