Garage Door Construction

More energy efficiency and sound control.
With 1-, 2-, or 3-layer construction options, you can select a Pella® garage door with your desired level of energy efficiency and quiet operation. Choose a Pella garage door with SAFEShield construction to help protect your loved ones from injuries.

The more layers of construction and the thicker the door, the better the Pella garage door can help maintain the temperature in your garage and lower the door operating noise level. This is especially important if the garage is attached to your home or used as a living space.
All Pella residential steel garage doors are manufactured in the USA with American-made components, affirming Pella's commitment to high quality and durability.
