Windload Certified Resources

Doors are often the largest break in a building's structural base, making them exceptionally vulnerable when severe weather strikes. Studies show that once a building's envelope is breached, it's common to see significant damage to the remainder of that building. With that in mind, staying protected from severe weather, pressure changes and impacts is no small task - that's where windload rated doors come in. By pairing the right door to your application, you can protect your building from tropical storms, hurricanes and even high speed wind damage. 


Wind load doors are engineered to protect the structural integrity of a building from the high speed winds associated with severe weather. These doors protect a building's structure by resisting buckling, bowing, and misalignment when faced with intense pressures. Wind load doors can prevent more than forceful winds from entering your building and causing mass destruction, including rain, debris and other harmful contamination.

Wind Load Doors Are Much More than a Higher Strength Curtain

An overhead door is responsible for two types of loads: A dead load and a live load. The dead load is the constant weight of the door itself, and the live load is the fluctuating weight the door is subject to, in this case it's wind pressure.


A common misconception: People assume increasing the gauge of an overhead door's curtain will better protect your building from strong winds. This is false. By adding dead weight to the overhead door, it directly reduces the capacity of live load the door can withstand. The best way to prepare you building against high speed winds is to invest in wind load doors that have updated guide assemblies, specialty wind locks, steel mounting plates, draft seals and other components that help to protect against high speed wind events.


The wind load is the amount of live load a door can handle. By investing in an overhead door with these strengthening components it qualifies the door to sufficiently handle greater live loads, resulting in an impressive wind load rating that will protect your building when a hurricane or high speed wind event strikes.

-Select Builders doors are packaged and loaded with care to minimize transit damage. However, due to road conditions and shipper handling procedures outside our control, there are exceptions. Small dents or dings as well as light paint damage due to wear and tear in transit are classified as normal and therefore not an approved reason to return or refuse delivery of the door. We will supply touch up paint but cannot accept a return of the door.


According to the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA), “a common occurrence with rolling door products, under normal usage of such products, is the wearing away of the painted surface of the curtain. This condition occurs as the result of the curtain repeatedly coiling upon itself, and then repeatedly uncoiling, upon the opening and closing of a rolling door.” Therefore normal wear and tear from metal to metal contact is not covered under the Select Builders paint warranty.
