Building code officials, builders, insurance companies and building owners are increasingly aware of the need for structures to withstand high winds resulting from hurricanes, tropical storms and other weather related events.
With the introduction and adoption of the International Building Code in most areas of the U.S., wind load is no longer an issue exclusive to Florida and other hurricane prone areas.
Clopay® has developed a unique WindCode® ID program to help you select the right garage door. It includes factors like local building code, MPH requirements, exposure level and mean roof height.
Ask your local Clopay dealer for assistance in selecting the appropriate Clopay WindCode® garage door for your area. You also can use Clopay's WindCode® Calculator to get the necessary wind load calculations.
