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.

Amarr Classica CL1000 vs Amarr Stratford ST1000

In this section, we’ll compare two more Classica and Stratford door options. These are lower-tier models with fewer bells and whistles than the higher-end models (2000, 3000, etc.). While there may be some similarities with their higher-end counterparts, lower-tier models typically won’t insulate your garage as well as higher-end models and they’ll have fewer customization options. The benefit is that you’ll avoid paying for premium options if they’re not something you are interested in. Check out the table below to compare the Classica CL1000 vs the Stratford ST1000.
