Therma-Tru Doors Meet Industry’s Toughest Wind Codes
Severe wind is a serious concern no matter where you live. That’s why Therma-Tru’s Advanced Technology Center works to improve the wind protection performance of our doors. We have testing units that duplicate hurricane winds and other conditions. As an example of the center’s work, the Classic-Craft® line has a design pressure rating as high as DP-100. The DP rating is a measure of the level of wind force a door system can withstand without failing or cracking.
Meeting Strict Florida Codes
Following the destruction from Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the state of Florida adopted some of the toughest U.S. building codes. Most of Therma-Tru’s Classic-Craft, Fiber-Classic® and Smooth-Star® fiberglass door systems have been tested and approved for coastal use in Florida. This includes configured door systems with one sidelite, two sidelites and double doors.
Tru-Defense® Door System
The new standard for dependable performance in door systems. Tru-Defense Door System maximizes the seal between the door and the frame to keep out the damaging effects of wind and rain, and increases energy efficiency.
The secret to our Tru-Defense Door System performance is a series of components designed and engineered to work together to perform better in all kinds of weather conditions.
Homeowners want safety, security and peace of mind. That's why every Therma-Tru fiberglass entryway with a Tru-Defense Door System is backed by a full system warranty rider.
