Hurricane High Impact Doors

Types of Hurricane High Impact Doors
– Entry Doors
– Exterior Doors
– French Doors
– Front Doors
– Garage Doors
– Glass Doors
– Patio Doors
– Sliding Glass Doors
– Traffic Doors

When choosing a replacement hurricane entry or patio door, you have more than a few options and prices to choose from. First and foremost, it’s always important to have a budget in mind when going into a project like this as materials tend to vary. Hurricane impact doors can range from your standard $300-400 steel solid core models sold at Home Depot to the high-end semi and fully custom wood doors as much as $25,000. There are a number of quality reasonably priced options in between.

Materials To Choose From:
– Steel
– Fiberglass
– Aluminum
– Wood

Material costs increase in the order listed above with wood doors being your most expensive and a steel door being the lowest. For the majority of South Florida homes, either a fiberglass or aluminum door would make the most sense, which offer the most value.

Hardware:
In most cases, the cost of the door does not include a lock, or even hinges. These are all custom options. Hurricane Management Group suggests a 3-point locking system for any entry door. This offers the highest level of security and strength.

Colors:
Impact doors can come in nearly any color. There are exceptionally nice options for both fiberglass and aluminum doors that give your entry the wood appearance you may be looking for at a reduced cost.

Glass or No Glass:
This is a great question. USUALLY, the more glass in an entry door generally means higher costs. This is not true. There are some great cost effective options using either steel, fiberglass or aluminum.

Hurricane High Impact Windows

What is Impact Glass:
Impact glass is also called monolithic or laminated glass. What impact glass offers is increased strength and rigidity after breakage from impact compared to your standard window or even tempered or heat strengthened glass. This glass is comprised of two pieces of heat strengthened glass with a thin plastic inner layer mounted in a super strong frame much like your windshield is made in your car only much thicker and much stronger. Insulated impact glass is actually three pieces of glass in a single frame. It has the standard two pieces of glass filled with a plastic inner layer but it also has about a 1/4″-1/2″ void between it and a third piece of heat strengthened glass that is usually filled with Argon Gas.

Impact Skylights

Following the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, South Florida officials adopted the first mandatory glazing impact standards in the United States. In order for skylights, windows or glass doors to be installed in these “Wind-Borne Debris Area” zones, they must meet the stringent impact test requirement provisions. Those in affected areas should consider code-compliant skylights for more than just safety. They can be a cost-effective choice for bringing better natural lighting and additional ventilation into buildings, particularly where building codes may limit the use of traditional windows. Impact skylights designed to meet the latest building code requirements in all areas are readily available.

Hurricane Wilma

Hurricane Wilma in Florida

Hurricane Wilma was the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Wilma was the fourth Category 5 hurricane and second-most destructive hurricane of the record-breaking 2005 season. Formed in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica on October 15. Wilma continued intensifying, and eventually became a hurricane on October 18. Shortly thereafter, extreme intensification occurred, and in only 24 hours, Wilma became a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made landfall in Cape Romano, Florida with winds of 120 mph (190 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the US state of Florida. At least 62 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at $29.1 billion (2005 USD), $20.6 billion (2005 USD) of which occurred in the United States. As a result, Hurricane Wilma is ranked among the top five most costly hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic and the fifth costliest storm in United States history.
