If you live in a storm-prone area or along a coast that experiences hurricanes, one of the best ways to preserve your belongings is with a wind loaded garage door. Precision Garage Door of Columbia offers a variety of hurricane resistant/wind loaded garage doors that provide exceptional protection for your home.
Benefits of Hurricane Resistant/Wind Loaded Garage Doors
According to the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, a garage door is one of the most vulnerable areas in your home during a hurricane or high wind because of the often lightweight materials used in its construction and because it creates a wide opening into your home. During a hurricane or other storm, if the garage door is lost, this may allow enough air pressure to get inside the home and lift the roof off and severely damage the rest of the structure.
A hurricane resistant/wind loaded garage door often has reinforced struts made from high tensile steel. In addition, some wind loaded garage doors are tested at wind speeds of up to 150 miles per hour, equal to a Category 4 hurricane, and some models also undergo impact testing using a 2×4 wooden stud fired from a canon to simulate flying debris. This testing helps ensure that the garage door can stand up to even the most severe weather conditions.
Precision Garage Door of Columbia carries multiple wind-loaded garage doors, and we also have the ability to retrofit current doors. Our experienced team can help protect your family, home, and belongings.
