HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOOR PANELS

Determine if your door has embossed panel designs or not. Then measure the panel depth to determine which size product will suit your door. Double doors require 2 packs

OPTION 1 : 28mm PANEL

Embossed panel design doors have a smaller depth for the product to sit, you will need to allow for it. This can be done by placing a ruler vertically against the protruding design and measure as shown in the photo (right); it should suit the 28mm product.

OPTION 2 : 35mm PANEL

Flat panel design doors generally have a deeper depth, measure this from the back of the panel to the front of the profile. This should suit the 35mm product.

FAQs

What is R-Value?

An R-Value is a rating which measures how well insulation can resist heat flow. ‘R’ stands for thermal resistance.

  • R-Value level depends on a number of things such as the type
    of material, its density and thickness.
  • Higher R-Value = Better insulation.

Are EXPOL Garage Door Insulation Kits available for any other sort of garage door?

No they can only be used in sectional garage doors.
