What is “Windload” and how do I know if it is required?

Windload rated garage doors are needed, and sometimes required, in high wind areas such as coastal areas and tornado prone geographies. Practically every door that Garage Door Discounters offers is available with a wind load reinforcement system to withstand high-wind conditions. Our Amarr Wind Load garage doors look identical from the outside and are engineered to meet local building codes on the inside.

In order to determine if a wind load rated door is required in your area, you must check your local building codes. You may also contact us directly at 1-877-870-3667 and one of our experts can help you determine the wind load requirements in your area.
