Reinforced Garage Doors Help Protect During High Winds

Protection During Hurricane Season

Garage Doors will play a crucial role in the protection of your home, especially in a hurricane region like Florida. If you do not have Hurricane Tested Garage Doors, high winds can force it out of the opening, causing an uncontrolled buildup of internal pressure and ultimately a blowout of your home’s roof and supporting walls.

The 2002 Florida Building Code requires homes in most coastal areas have windows installed that can withstand 350 foot-pounds of impact energy. A supplier we work with has impact resistant windows that meet this new, stricter code.

  • Smooth, structurally enhanced window frame.
  • Strong, durable, UV resistant, clear LEXAN™ glazing.
  • Offered on Clopay WindCode® garage doors up to W6 (not available in Miami-Dade or Broward Counties).
  • Available in white, brown, sandstone, and almond colors.
