  • Kynar®/Duranar® Coatings: Duranar® coatings for fire department garage doors are highly recommended if a color is a custom match or if there are any concern about color fading. In particular Arm-R-Lite recommends any red finishes be Duranar® as they will retain their bright and stunning color for decades longer than standard powder coats. Kynar®/Duranar® finishes carry a 20 year warranty, unless installation is within 1 mile of salt water.
  • RAL Powder Coats: Arm-R-Lite also offers fire department garage doors with standard RAL powder coats with and without the option for a protective clear coat against fading. RAL powder coats are warrantied for 1 year, unless installation is within 1 mile of salt water.
  • Faux Wood Finishes: Fire department garage doors in historical areas or specified in carriage house stile may want to have their aluminum doors finished to look like wood. Faux wood finishes are warrantied for 10 years, unless within 1 mile of salt water.
