Sleek, modern building designs are becoming increasingly popular with architects, builders, and homeowners alike.  For residential and commercial buildings, sometimes a steel overhead door doesn’t have the right “look.”  Entrematic offers a line of Aluminum Full View Amarr doors with multiple options, including recently expanded colors and panel offerings!


Amarr Vista VI1000 doors complement the windows on this modern home.

How do you know if an Aluminum Full View, or AFV, door is right for you?  Here are some benefits of AFV doors that you may want to consider when weighing your options.

  1. Increased visibility. Entrematic’s Amarr Vista VI1000 is a great residential option for homes that want increased visibility from a garage door.  Want to see outside, or be able to see in?  Clear glass panels allow just that.  For a bit more privacy, you can also get different glass types, like Obscure or Frost, which cut back on the visibility.  Visibility can be important if you want your AFV door to open up to another room, or to the outside.  Increased visibility can be a benefit for commercial applications as well.  For example, a car dealership or service station with commercial Amarr 3502 or 3552 doors can easily see when a car is approaching the garage!

  1. Increased natural light. Bring the outdoors inside.  AFV doors really let the sunlight in!  Another benefit of natural light is natural, solar heat in your garage or room.
  2. Don’t worry about the cold. Amarr Vista VI1000 & Amarr 3552 have insulated glass options and insulated panels to ensure energy efficiency, while still having the increased natural light and visibility.
  3. Complement your home. Entrematic offers a variety of frame, panel and glass options to match your style.  With an unlimited selection of powder coat aluminum colors, over 30 glass options and solid, perforated or louvered vent panels, you can select the look that’s just right for you.

The Amarr 3552, pictured here, is a popular option for restaurants that open to the outdoors.
