Impact Sliding Doors in Miami
Sliding doors are especially vulnerable to storm damage as they have a large surface area of glass. If a sliding door fails, you will have a large breach in your house, and given where sliding doors are normally installed in a house, that breach will most likely occur in a critical part of your living space such as the kitchen or family room.
Get your home ready for the next major storm by investing in impact sliding doors, available in aluminum, vinyl, and wood. A heavy-duty vinyl frame locks this door securely into your home, and an inner laminate keeps the water out.
What Makes Impact Sliding Doors Hurricane Proof?
The hurricane impact glass on the sliding door is made of high-quality tempered glass, which is four times stronger than regular glass. An interlayer of polyvinyl butyral, or PVB, is set between two sheets of glass, giving the sliding door flexibility and toughness. Also, should a crack occur, the PVB prevents the glass from shattering into pieces.

All of our hurricane impact sliding doors are fully compliant with the strict standards set by Miami-Dade and Broward Counties for their High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ).
