Hurricane Garage Door

                                 Why Do I Need Wind Load Reinforcements?

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) identified the loss of garage doors as one of the major factors contributing to hurricane storm damage in homes and about 80% of residential hurricane wind damage starts with wind entry through the garage door according to Federal Alliance for Safe Homes. The structural integrity of a building can be compromised if the wind forces cause the residential or commercial door to buckle during a hurricane or severe storm. With the appropriate configuration of heavy-duty reinforcements, wind load-rated doors can stand up to high wind pressures produced during extreme weather events, protecting your building and assets.
