Green Hinge System Testimonials

By pushing the overhead door tight against the door jamb while in the closed position, a tight seal is maintained, even on windy days, when doors tend to push away from the jamb.Our Logistics company installed Green Hinges on all overhead dock doors in our ambient warehouses. The product addresses two major needs for our facilities. First, they protect the products we store from pests. In addition, they help in controlling our utility costs by reducing heat loss during winter months.
Installation of the hinges was easy and they have been in operation for the past few years without any issues.
Green Hinge by Arn (2013-02-28 12:42:13)
Excellent product ! Well built and made in the U.S.A. My 2 garage doors are sealed now! Green Hinges make a tremendous difference in retaining heat, I'm sure it will also keep my garage cooler in the summer. My doors were just adjusted (for a fee) and still had wind sneaking in, especially on the real windy days. Now they stay sealed, even makes the garage area quieter as well ! I'll get heat savings payback in a year for sure, well worth the purchase price ! Thanks, again to Green Hinge of Lena, WI.
Awesome Hinges! by Glen K. (2012-11-29 09:56:54)
If you heat your shop, you need these hinges. I ordered a set a couple of weeks ago to try them out and I love them! I'm going order a set now for my other door. We had a 20 mph wind with gusts last weekend, and I stood and watched to see if the hinges would yield to the wind. They held strong! Awesome hinges!!! I just wish I would have known about them sooner.
41 Auto Shop w/6 doors by Jeff Hoover (2011-05-11 14:28:07)
The hinges are a definite heat savings for the shop. We have a 6 bay shop with an oil heater and when the temperature is 0-20 degrees the heater ran non stop, but since the hinges where installed it stops for an hour or so plus I didn't have to buy oil this year. Also I couldn't stand by the garage doors before so definitely an improvement.
Fire Station Doors by Wally Remic (2011-05-10 15:47:41)
I first had the hinges installed in my shop, The first thing I noticed was that the light coming in around the doors had been reduced to just about none, no light no heat loss. I am also the fire chief at crooked Lake Wisconsin, the men took one look at my doors and we did all six at the station, again, no light no heat/cooling loss. We are in northern Wis. so over time our heat savings will pay for the hinges. Thanks for a great product.

Sealing my garage door with Green Hinge had many advantages. Right away I noticed that my door did not rattle anymore. I live in Wisconsin and have an unheated attached garage. The first winter I noticed that the garage was warmer, so I placed a thermostat in the garage and the temp. did not go below freezing. When we have bad snow storms some snow would drift into the garage and this year there was no snow that entered the garage. I also noticed when I open the door to the house from the garage there is no draft into the house. I can tell that the air pressure is no longer there and this also reduced dust from entering the house. I am really happy with the Green Hinges, that's for sure.

When I first looked at the Green Hinge I tought "what is that" but once they where on my door it was a whole different story. I installed them on my 14ft by 16ft truck door that is on my heated garage. I could never get my door adjusted to eliminate the air leak, but the Green Hinges did just that. The day after installation I could tell a noticeable difference. I have an outside wood boiler that heats the garage and usually every night all the wood is burned by morning. With the Grenn Hinges on, there is still wood left the next day, which saves me a lot of money on wood. It is also nice that it made my door quieter. After seeing what it did, I would put the Green Hinges on every door I have.
