What Is An Impact Garage Door?

The garage door plays an often overlooked but pivotal role in protecting your home. When you think about it, regardless of what purpose your garage serves, the door is the largest entry point into your home. The garage door is one of the most vulnerable parts of your home or business. According to FEMA, damaged garage doors are among the top contributing reasons for extensive hurricane damage.

The reason standard garage doors fail and contribute to increased interior damage is a matter of science. Heavy winds blowing against the garage door are called positive wind pressure. When a garage door twists or is pulled off your home, negative wind pressure can force the garage door off its tracks and rip it from the garage. Eventually, the opposing positive and negative winds create internal pressure inside a structure, leading to catastrophic damage.

Buckled garage doors from heavy winds can cause extensive damage that extends far beyond the door. Vehicular, roofing, foundations, driveways, and interior structure destruction are only a few things that are susceptible to tropical storm winds and rain.

Impact garage doors are specially designed to withstand winds up to 200 miles per hour. Since a Category 5 hurricane can produce winds of 156 mph, it’s easy to see how a reinforced garage door adds a vital layer of protection.

We offer hurricane-rated garage doors designed specifically to meet the strict building codes in Florida, providing an extra layer of security and priceless peace of mind.

Traditional Vs. Hurricane-Rated Garage Doors

Traditional garage doors are the default for most homes. The most common types of materials used for garage doors include:

  • Vinyl
  • Wood
  • Steel
  • Wood Composite
  • Aluminum Frame
  • Fiberglass

Because of its affordability and durable, low-maintenance features, steel is perhaps the most common garage door material. Unfortunately, no matter which material is chosen, traditional garage doors are not able to withstand hurricane winds and rain, leaving the biggest entryway into your home or business vulnerable and exposed to the elements.

Hurricane-rated impact garage doors offer so much more protection than thin, conventional garage doors. For starters, impact-resistant garage doors offer reinforced layers. The combination of layering materials like steel, aluminum, insulation, and wood provides a huge blanket of security for your home.

Our doors are reinforced and solidified in the protection they provide through heavy-gauge tracks, making them a twist-resistant force to be reckoned with. Compared with simple, single-layer traditional garage doors, impact garage doors offer:

  1. Protective layers of combined materials for strengthened security
  2. Heavy gauged tracks that can withstand hurricane-force winds
  3. Waterproofing features, including extra-duty weather stripping
  4. Reinforced security through steel rods, custom-fitted on the interior of the garage door

Strength & Beauty Combined:
Experience The Look of Impact Garage Doors

A common misconception about impact garage doors is that the security features and added benefits of reinforced materials must be ugly or generally displeasing. We’re disproving that rumor.

Due to advancements in technology over the last decade or so, impact garage doors offer both enhanced security and protection as well as modern beauty to fit any aesthetic.

As licensed distributors for leading brands and businesses that specialize in impact garage door design, our extensive catalog of products has something for everyone. Choose from customizable features, including style, color, design, window facings, and tint shades.


Additional Benefits Of Hurricane Impact Garage Doors

Along with enhanced protection for your home or commercial property, impact garage doors offer more than hurricane-proofing. Because of the expertly combined layering, our customers often see a reduction in energy costs, thanks to the added insulation of a hurricane-rated door. Some customers see a dip in overall insurance costs when upgrading to an impact garage door.
