Like windows, your doors are a vulnerable element of your home when it comes to severe weather and break-ins. Impact doors can help secure your home, and these days they come in a huge range of styles to match any home’s design.
Benefits Of Impact Doors
Also called hurricane-doors or impact-resistant doors, impact doors are made from heavy-duty reinforced aluminum. They have fortified hinges, hardware, and facing to ensure the door can’t be breached by an intruder, projectile, or high winds. Impact doors are also more energy efficient than traditional doors, with many carrying Energy Star ratings, which is especially important in large sliding glass patio doors.
Impact glass inserts let in natural light and add decorative elements, so no one knows they’re looking at a high security door.
Types If Impact Doors:
- Entryway doors – Front door, back door, and garage doors. Choose from nondescript doors or elaborate and contemporary doors. Aluminum is the strongest for storm-prone areas or those with lots of break-ins.
- Sliding glass doors – Made from impact glass that won’t shatter when hit with a projectile, sliding glass impact doors come in many styles and options to increase energy efficiency.
- French doors – Classic French doors that open to a patio, deck, or veranda can be made with impact-resistant aluminum with impact glass.
- Bi-fold doors – Another option for opening your home onto a patio, bi-fold doors are made from large panes of impact glass with reinforced hardware and tracks to keep the doors secured when closed.
