Simulated Center Post

The garage door dominates the front elevation of many homes. A doublewide garage door opening can distract even further from the home’s architecture. To transform the possible negative effects of a large garage door into an aesthetic positive, we created the “simulated center post”* design.

This is a doublewide door that appears to be two single-wide doors with a “post” built into the center, seemingly separating the “two” doors. This breaks up the large horizontal surface and adds visual appeal to the garage facade.

 
The false center post creates a visual break between the two sides of a wide garage door. We developed a patented process to integrate the post into the full-width door. Often, the center post is painted or stained in a contrasting color.

This custom door is a double door made to look like two single doors using our vintage 3D Simulated Center Post. The raised panel of the door shows around the entire edge, not only the center post.
