Impact Garage Doors

Impact garage doors, also known as hurricane-resistant or storm-rated garage doors, are specially designed to withstand the destructive forces of hurricanes, tropical storms, and high-wind events. Overall, they offer a combination of strength, durability, and protection against severe weather, making them a valuable investment.


  • Impact garage doors are constructed with reinforced materials and engineering techniques to provide superior strength and durability.
  • They feature a sturdy frame made of steel or aluminum and are filled with dense insulation to enhance structural integrity and energy efficiency.
  • The door panels are reinforced with heavy-duty hardware, bracing, and impact-resistant materials such as fiberglass or aluminum.

Impact Resistance:

  • The primary feature of impact garage doors is their ability to resist high winds, flying debris, and impacts from wind-borne objects during severe weather events.
  • They undergo rigorous testing and certification to meet or exceed local building codes and industry standards for wind resistance and impact resistance.Rated based on their ability to withstand wind pressures and impacts from debris, with ratings typically ranging from “low” to “high” or “wind load” to “storm-rated.”


  • The construction of impact garage doors varies depending on the manufacturer and model, but common features include heavy-gauge steel or aluminum panels, reinforced tracks and hardware, and impact-resistant glazing for windows.
  • Some doors feature multi-layer construction with steel skins bonded to a rigid core for added strength and durability.
  • Reinforced bracing and struts are often installed to reinforce the door’s structure and distribute wind loads more evenly.


  • Operate similarly to standard overhead doors, with options for manual operation or motorized operation with automatic openers.
  • Motorized openers are equipped with advanced features such as battery backup systems, remote controls, and smartphone connectivity for added convenience and security.
  • Safety features such as photoelectric sensors and auto-reverse mechanisms are included to prevent accidents and injuries.


  • Primarily used in regions prone to hurricanes, tropical storms, and high-wind events, such as coastal areas and regions with stringent building codes.
  • They are suitable for residential homes, commercial buildings, and multi-family dwellings where protection against severe weather is essential.
  • Impact garage doors can also be installed in non-coastal regions as a precautionary measure or to meet insurance requirements for windstorm coverage.


  • Superior protection: Provide peace of mind and protection for homeowners and property occupants during severe weather events, reducing the risk of property damage and personal injury.
  • Increased security: Their reinforced construction and impact-resistant features enhance security against intruders and forced entry attempts.
  • Energy efficiency: Impact garage doors with insulated panels and weather seals help maintain indoor temperatures and reduce heating and cooling costs.
  • Longevity: With their durable construction and resistance to environmental factors, impact garage doors are built to last and withstand years of use and exposure.
