Commercial & Industrial Hurricane (Wind Load Resistant) Garage Doors

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Sep 21, 2021 12:00:00 AM

Commercial or industrial wind load-rated overhead doors can help to protect your facility, your staff, your equipment, and your goods. During hurricane season, there’s often a lot of questions about commercial and industrial hurricane garage doors and how to protect buildings from damage. It’s no surprise that rolling doors, sectional steel doors, and fire-rated doors are often areas of great concern, as an opening or hole in the building is a natural pressure point that must be able to withstand great wind forces in a hurricane.

One important component that can help your facility withstand hurricane-force winds and should be one of the top items in one’s preparedness list is selecting a commercial or industrial hurricane and wind load overhead door.

What is a Wind Load Garage Garage Door?

Wind load garage doors are engineered to protect the structural integrity of a building from the high-speed winds associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, etc. These doors protect a building's structure by resisting buckling, bowing, and misalignment when faced with intense pressures.


Having a Wind Load Rated Overhead Door Can Make a Big Difference

Did you know that when high winds hit, a reinforced door like this is one of the most important structural elements to keep your home or business intact while disaster kits are important for emergency evacuations? Having a wind load-rated overhead door might make the difference between returning to a pile of debris or to your structure as you left it. If a high force wind causes your overhead door to collapse or detach from its track, high winds can blow out entry doors, walls, windows, and even the roof once inside as winds build up internal pressure.

There's No Need to Sacrifice Style for Safety

Our wind load overhead doors have a system of specifically designed components such as upgraded track, hinges and roller, reinforcing struts for the door, and brackets that work altogether to reach a specific design pressure, the one that the overhead door can withstand. They have also been tested and designed to comply with wind load requirements set by the local building authorities and by the state.
