Overhead sectional doors are usually the largest moving component of a home or commercial property. Spanning widths up to 30’ feet when using Arm-R-Lite, these products 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 Overhead Sectional Doors: Are you ready for Hurricane Season?

Arm-R-Lite offers two of our welded aluminum and glass overhead sectional doors with windloaded options. 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 Arm-R-Lite door can provide you with the strongest windloaded sectional door option for your home or business. If you’re not sure what you need in a windloaded door or if you are having trouble locating a door that meets your requirements, we encourage you to contact us with questions.
