Hurricane Pivot Doors Adhere to Florida Building Code Standards

Hope’s Windows Inc. has announced that its Jamestown175 Series hurricane pivot doors have passed wind tests and are certified for use within hurricane and impact zones. The doors adhere to Miami-Dade County, Florida Building Code (FBC) and High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) standards.

The Jamestown175 Series include 6-feet wide by 11-feet tall single panel doors, hot-rolled steel sightlines and its Power of 5 Finishing System. The doors are tested for TAS-201 (large missile impact), TAS-202 (structural), TAS-203 (cyclic load), air infiltration, water, and design pressure of +/- 60.0 PSF.

“At Hope’s, we do not take anything for granted. We know our clients have very high expectations of our products and we take this very seriously. The Jamestown175 Series pivot doors are the perfect example of this tenet,” says Southeast Regional Sales Manager Adam Irgang. “These doors have passed the most stringent tests in the country, and we’re proud to offer a one-of-a-kind product that represents our brand and reputation.”

Pivot doors similar to those recently tested are featured in a number of residential and commercial properties throughout North America. Hope’s Windows Inc. is proud to be a leader in custom fabrication, product development, product testing and 3rd party certifications. In their goal to achieve additional possibilities in window and door design, it will continue to push the limits beyond what conventional wisdom deems possible.
