A hurricane rated garage door will remain in place under much higher wind pressure than a non-rated door when a hurricane hits. The garage door opening is normally the largest opening of a home and when a garage door caves in or comes out all together, the amount of wind pressure that comes into your garage is capable of ripping the roof right off of your home. This is due to the standing air in the garage being instantly converted to a hurricane environment. The roof is often not able to withstand the lifting force from underneath caused by this rapid transition. Different parts of Brevard County & Indian River County have different hurricane code requirements for garage doors. We will be more than happy to explain what your code is and why, and what kind of hurricane garage door meets those codes and your needs.

DAB Hurricane Master®
They don’t call this door the “Hurricane Master” for nothing. Straight out of the box, the DAB Hurricane Master is Dade County rated: the highest level of hurricane protection available. This door comes standard with an industry unique, patented Interforce™ Structural Reinforcement System which makes it able to withstand extreme wind velocities, while running smoother and quieter than most other doors. The 24 gauge hot-dipped, galvanized steel door offers premium protection against impact from debris. A baked-on primer undercoat is applied to both sides of steel to protect against corrosion. A transferable lifetime warranty against rust is unique to the industry and provides an extra measure of quality assurance. Dade County impact rated windows are also available for this product (as pictured on right) in a variety of styles. Colors available: white, almond and brown.
Clopay takes the garage door from functional to fashionable. Clopay’s innovative designs clearly make the garage door a focal point of any home. Below are descriptions and pictures of the Coachman, Gallery, and Avante Collections.
The Coachman Collection combines the classic look and feel of wood with the strength and durability of steel. This sandwich door uses two sheets of hot-dipped galvanized steel with a layer of polystyrene insulation between them. An additional composite overlay on the outside gives these models their unique look. Aesthetically speaking, this door is a real eye-pleaser and provides a beautiful finishing touch on a variety of home styles. It is available in White, Almond, and Sandstone.
This stylish, carriage house designed garage door is affordable and guaranteed to compliment the overall look of your home. The deep embossed panels have a natural woodgrain texture which creates an authentic carriage house look at a much lower price than most carriage style doors. The surface is maintenance-free due to the three layers of construction: hot-dipped galvanized steel, baked-on primer and top coat. Insulation is optional, while standard features include galvanized torsion springs, nylon rollers, and a rust-proof, aluminum bottom weatherseal retainer to help seal out the elements. Colors available: White, Almond, and Sandstone.
The Avante Collection, reminiscent of Scandinavian design, is the marriage of form and function. Contemporary aluminum and glass are integrated, which gives this door a sleek, modern look. The 2 ⅛ inch aluminum frame provides a maintenance-free, long-lasting door. Integral reinforcing struts provide increased longevity. Amazingly, this all glass/aluminum construction is engineered and tested to hurricane strengths. Frame and Glass Panel options are shown below.
The ADS Carriage House Collection
Your home will come alive with style thanks to our collection of beautiful, simulated Wood Panels. Polymeric wood garage door panels are available in pecky cypress and teak. The polymeric synthetic wood process has the authentic look and feel of real wood, without the maintenance associated with wooden doors. It does not warp or split, will not absorb moisture, and is impervious to insects, vermin, and rot. A four-part paint process includes two final coats of polyurethane with UV inhibitors which resist fading and discoloration. The high density, cellular construction adds very little weight, adding only character and beauty to the most majestic of homes for years to come. Unlike many competing products, these polymeric panels are near rock hard, giving them superior durability against the forces of nature, or even the occasional basketball. Complete “build from scratch” customization is available. Please contact us for details.
