Engineered to Withstand a Hurricane

Hurricane season spans from May to November. That is a long time for the possibility of an event to occur that could result in costly damage. Having a commercial door that can withstand hurricane winds, as well as debris picked up by strong winds, is important when it comes to protecting inventory, equipment, and even the building itself. If the door is damaged, strong winds can cause the pressure inside the building to greatly increase, which may cause foundation damage. Many states along the coast, such as Florida, have wind and building codes with which businesses must comply. Rytec will help provide your business with proper hurricane zone doors - to meet these codes, protect your valuable business and save you money on repairs.

Why Rytec Hurricane Zone Doors?

When speed, safety and security aren’t enough, Rytec offers a high-performance door engineered to stand up to the wind and rain of a hurricane. Hurricane doors help keep rain and flood waters out better than standard garage doors, while staying aligned in their tracks. Built for durability and strength, these doors will outlast standard garage doors and give your property and belongings long term protection, during and after hurricane season. Able to withstand winds up to 175 miles per hour and small missile impact, Rytec's hurricane zone doors, Spiral® HZ® and Spiral® LH-HZ, are built to last, even in extreme environments. With heavy duty reinforced hinges and aluminum slats, these hurricane rated doors can stand up to wind loads produced during most hurricanes. If your facilities are within a hurricane zone, consider these doors for maximum protection.
