How to Select A Hurricane-Ready Garage Door

How to Select a Hurricane-Ready Garage Door

1. Hurricane rated garage doors, also known as impact rated garage doors, are tested for specific wind code requirements for both residential and commercial structures. It is important that your replacement garage door meets the code requirements for your area’s minimum wind speed, exposure and structural type. Broward and Miami-Dade County are in a High Velocity Hurricane Zone.

2. Learn a little about wind load. Most building codes require a garage door to be wind load tested. Wind load rating is the amount of air pressure that can be exerted against the door without causing it to fail. This pressure is measured against the outside of the door (called the positive pressure) and against the inside of the door (the negative pressure). The garage door is engineered and manufactured to meet a design pressure rating. An independent laboratory then tests the door to 150% of the design pressure rating. This is the test pressure rating. Both the design pressure rating and the test pressure rating are stated in the pressure per square foot (psf).

3. Measure your garage. When a hurricane passes over, it creates a vacuum, resulting in negative pressure inside the garage. The mean roof height must be measured to help you select a garage door with the right design rating.
