Amarr Classica vs Amarr Horizon Garage Door Comparison

Making a choice between two options is easier when you can compare them side-by-side. In this post, we’ll detail the differences between two Amarr garage door series, the Amarr Classica and the Amarr Horizon garage doors. By the end of the post, you’ll be ready to talk to your local garage door retailer like a pro.

Amarr Garage Doors

Amarr opened in 1951 as a local building supply company. After recognizing market demands, they streamlined their product lines and focused on quality garage doors. After opening manufacturing facilities across the country during the 70s and 80s, the 2000s gave rise to meteoric growth in their dealer network and strategic partnerships.  In November 2013, Amarr was acquired by ASSA ABLOY, one of the world’s leading brands in door opening solutions, to become the leading North American sectional door brand of the company Entrematic.

Amarr garage doors are made in the USA of imported and domestic components.

Before we get to the comparison table, there are a few things you should know about shopping for garage doors. Shopping for garage doors is similar to shopping for a car:

  • The best way to get a price is to talk directly to a retailer about the type of product you are looking for.
  • Doors, like cars, are available in different models and there are (sometimes) multiple tiers available for each model. The product in each tier varies by price, customization options, and baseline inclusions.

When shopping for a garage door you’ll want to think about what is most important to you, the look, the insulation value, the warranty, etc. Each of these considerations will affect the total price of the product and we’ve included these specifications and more in our comparison table.

Amarr offers 12 distinct garage door lines but in this post, we’ll just focus on the Amarr Classica and Amarr Horizon series which are considerably different.
