Is this door insulated for winter climates?

It's a garage door application w/ laminate glass. Suppose you could order w/ insulated glass. We used Pemko brush weatherstripping up sides and top but it's not as tight as a typical door or window.

Clopay offers this garage door with tempered insulated glass. It's part of the Avante Collection www.clopaydoor.com.

My wife and I love this windowed-garage door! Overhead Door Co came out and provided a quote on installing this (8' x 8') in our ManCave (apt unit attached to the garage). Seemed a little steep ($4500) since I did all the prep work (demo/framing/header/drywall, etc). I'm curious if any of you would recommend the motor or just a simple, manual pulley system. What does this door have? (Having a motor in the middle of the living room might be a little odd.)

You could look at a LiftMaster Jackshaft opener, which is installed on the side of the door instead of overhead. It depends if you have enough side room. Jay Leno chose that model for his personal garage that Clopay and LiftMaster made over for an episode of DIY Network's "Garage Mahal." These doors can be expensive, especially if you install tempered, insulated glass. You can compare other manufacturers for pricing. Clopay's version is called the Avante Collection. www.clopay.com.

Thanks so much for the advice. I contacted a couple of the local businesses that use these garage doors to open up their restaurant or taprooms and they all said they just manually lift them and have a chain to close them. Pretty easy. My idea is to have these garage doors in a living space (i.e. not a garage), so motor is out.

That's exactly what we did w/ ours. No need for motor.

Joey I'm with you! That's what we're looking at using this in a living space as well. So I'm headed over to see if the weather rating is as advertised!

Progressive Solutions / Renaissance Bronze Windows
@marydisher @millerevent @Robin Chase
One step towards an energy efficient home is your windows & doors.
All of our Renaissance solid bronze windows & doors come with triple seal glass and double weatherstripping, although we do not currently offer a thermally broken unit.
With the narrow profile of our bronze, the glass and weatherstripping can have a greater impact on the overall performance of the window.
All windows and doors are rated with a solar heat gain co-efficient (SHGC) and U-factor, so you could check those requirements to meet your needs.
