Windloaded Fire Station Garage Doors
May 11, 2016
Spanning widths up to 32’ feet when using ArmRLite, fire station garage doors are exposed to all kind of weather conditions, including hurricanes and other high wind events.
June 2016 kicks off the Atlantic Hurricane season, however this year has seen at least (1) hurricane formation already. Hurricane Alex formed nearly five months before the official season leading us to wonder how many storms we should expect out of the Atlantic basin this year.
Windloaded Fire Station Garage Doors: Are you ready for Hurricane Season?
ArmRLite offers two of our welded aluminum and glass fire station doors with windloaded options: Titan and Custom CI. What this means is that these particular models have been tested to meet or exceed specific psf or mph wind requirements (depending on door size) that many areas of the United States now call for in their building codes.
Depending on your local code, an ArmRLite door can provide you with the strongest windloaded garage door option for your fire station. If you’re not sure what you need in a windloaded door or if you are having trouble locating a fire station garage door that meets your requirements, we encourage you to contact us with questions.
