Florida Hurricane Codes for Garage Doors
Does your garage door comply with the code?
Florida is extremely burdened by hurricanes and tropical storms nearly
every year. In order to reduce the amount of property damage and insurance
claims for these yearly occurrences, Florida legislature passed the Hurricane
Code, which implemented standards for home products and appliances that
about withstand hurricanes and reasonably reduce the risk of extreme damage.
This Code has a specific section governing garage doors as well as other
structural elements of a typical home.
Hurricanes can cause serious damage to your garage doors and thereby threaten
the safety and structure of your entire home. Some elements that pose
such risks include the following:
- High wind from a hurricane can cause overhead doors to buckle, especially
if they are not properly reinforced.
- Debris being carried by the wind can projectile at high velocities.
- Reduced air pressure inside the home can reach magnitudes that can cause
severe roof damage.
There are much more reasons for you to take proper measures to protect
your home from hurricane damage.
