Hurricane High Impact 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:
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.
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.
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 Glass Provides:
– Storm protection
– 24/7 security Noise reduction
– Climate control
– Energy efficiency
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.

Pembroke Pines FL
Pembroke Pines is a city in Broward County, Florida. The city had a population of 154,750 at the 2010 census, making it the second most populous city in Broward County. Its official motto is “Join Us – Progress with Us.” Pembroke Pines was incorporated in 1960. The name Pembroke Pines was taken from its location along Pembroke Road and the many pine trees in the area. However, the name Pembroke dates back much further, and may have originated with an early landowner from Britain known as the Earl of Pembroke. The first inhabitants of the area were American Indians who first appeared about 4,000 years ago. Skeletal remains of animal hunters dating back about 10,000 years were found around Broward County, showing that perhaps human beings had lived in the area even earlier. The town started as agricultural land occupied by dairy farms and grew after World War II as servicemen were retiring, including large eastern sections that were part of the Waldrep Dairy Farm. The first two tiny subdivisions were called Pembroke Pines. One of the first homes in the city belonged to Dr. and Mrs. Walter Smith Kipnis, built in 1956. Dr. Kipnis was also the first mayor. It was then known as the “Village of Pembroke Pines” and was incorporated into a town in 1959. Builders contested the incorporation, so a legal battle ensued concerning the boundaries of the new town. City services were added in the 1960’s with the building of the first fire department building near North Perry Airport. In January 1960, Pembroke Pines held another election, and the town became a city. This small property was less than a square mile and was between Hollywood Boulevard and SW 72nd Avenue, and had the Florida Turnpike to the east. Pembroke Pines sought to give citizens involvement so they organized the Pembroke Pines Civic Association. The square-mile city was unable to expand due to North Perry Airport and the South Florida State Hospital. Joseph LaCroix, a developer, had his 320 acres (1.3 km2) land north of Pines Boulevard annexed to the city. This gave a new pathway to proceed westward. In 1980, property from Flamingo Road to U.S. 27 was incorporated into Pembroke Pines, doubling the size of the city. This expansion included the property that is currently C.B. Smith Park as well as what was once the Hollywood Sportatorium and the Miami-Hollywood Motorsports Park. The city’s rapid population growth in the mid- to late-1990’s was part of the effect of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Thousands of southern Miami-Dade County residents moved northward to Broward County, many to Pembroke Pines. The resulting boom ranked the City of Pembroke Pines third in a list of “Fastest Growing Cities” in the United States in 1999. Over the past decade as developers expanded Pembroke Pines westward, more hurricanes have affected the city and its residents. In 1999 Hurricane Irene dumped up to 16 inches (410 mm) of rain in the city. The western communities, such as Chapel Trail and Silver Lakes, saw an estimated 19 inches (480 mm). Then in 2004, Hurricane Frances and Jeanne passed to the north (Palm Beach County) but brought tropical storm-force winds and left minor tree and shrub damage. The 2005 Hurricane Season left a mark on the city. Hurricane Katrina passed directly over the city as a category one storm. In its wake, it left some damage such as downed power lines and trees, especially in the Chapel Trail and Silver Lakes developments. In late October Hurricane Wilma’s eye passed about 20 miles (32 km) toward the north of the city, which saw the strongest winds its residents had experienced in decades. The strongest wind officially recorded in the city was a 92 mph (148 km/h) sustained wind, with a 101 mph (163 km/h) wind gust. Most of the city was left without power for days, lights at intersections had been destroyed, a riot at a gas station which led to it being closed, most landscaping was destroyed or damaged beyond repair, and left minor structural damage (mainly roof and screen damage). Weston FL is to the north. Hollywood FL is to the east. Miramar FL is to the south.
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.
