Windload Doors

C4 rated windload doors

Wind Rated Doors

Amarr wind load approved doors use a variety of reinforcement materials, including Struts and R-Trusses which are engineered to meet specific building code requirements. Modifications may be made to the hardware components, vertical and horizontal assemblies, and jamb brackets to meet specific building code requirements.

Strut and R Truss

Wind load doors are built specifically to withstand specific high-wind pressures with an interior wind load reinforcement system. Wind load reinforcement can be added to practically all Amarr doors to meet local building codes. Simply choose the door style that is right for you and your local Amarr garage door dealer/installer will confirm what wind load door is required in your area. It is the homeowner's responsibility to make sure the garage door meets local building codes. With Amarr, you don't have to compromise style for hurricane preparedness. Almost all Amarr garage doors are available with a wind load reinforcement system that meets or exceeds building code requirements in your area.

AN ENDURANCE TEST FOR GARAGE DOORS

Select Amarr wind load approved garage doors are large missile impact tested using a 9.5lb 2x4 board flying at 50' per second (35 mph). Next, the doors are put through rigorous cyclical pressure testing of 900 cycles that simulates the pressurization that can occur inside and outside of a house during a hurricane.

Large Missile Impact Testing

IMPACT GLASS

Available in short panel designs on select Amarr collections; impact glass can withstand the force of a 2x4 board flying at 50' per second (35 mph). Like windshield glass, it can still shatter, but the pane of glass will remain intact.

WINDLOAD POST SYSTEM

  • Creates a lighter door system, which reduces stress on sections, track and rollers.
  • System can achieve higher pressures than conventional horizontally reinforced doors.
  • Many configurations use standard sections and hardware requirements.
  • Initial installation time is less for the installer.
