Borano Impact Doors not only have the same beautiful, high quality appearance as our non-impact products, but they are also specially engineered and tested to withstand ultimate extreme weather conditions. These custom state-of-the-art doors are built to your specifications and meet Miami-Dade County and State of Florida product approval requirements:
- Notice of Acceptance (NOA) from the Miami Dade County Product Control Division
- Building Code for the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ)
- Building Code for Windstorm Resistant Construction
Our doors met and exceeded the most stringent code protocols by going through a series of rigorous third party agency testing in the areas of air and water infiltration and resistance, forced entry, cyclic wind resistance, flying debris, impact resistance and internal/external pressure cycles.
We achieved an outstanding Design Pressure (DS) of ±75 PSF hurricane/impact rating for single doors up to 42″ W x 120″ H and double doors up to 74″ W x 120″ H.
Secure and Discreet Hardware Systems
Our impact doors include a multi-point lock operating system, traditional hinges or concealed hinges and flush bolts for a discreet design, with no unsightly surface bolts holding the sash in place, unless the design calls for it.
Mahogany Wood Species
Borano only uses Mahogany, known for its durability, high resistance to decay, and minimal shrinkage, making it the optimum choice for coastal areas.
Energy Efficient Glass with UV Protection
Borano also offers an impact insulated glass option that help you achieve optimal energy efficiency, and is highly effective in reducing fading of interior furnishings (carpets, curtains & furniture) by absorbing 98% of UV light.
Lower Insurance Premiums
Not only do these doors allow protection from powerful storms, they will also protect you from break-ins and intrusions, and help lower your insurance rates. Impact doors are recognized by insurance companies as Class A hurricane protection. This protection classification entitles homeowners to a reduction of up to 40% in premium discounts.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Installing impact doors can be less than the cost of installing non-impact doors with a shutter, which is required by code.
By installing a Borano impact door, homeowners can rest assured, improve their home value, disaster resistance and structural seal, always be prepared when a hurricane is approaching without lifting a finger and do not have to worry about the integrity of their doors. Do not delay any further; get your Borano Impact Door before the next hurricane season!
