Impact Doors and Testing
In order to offer Impact doors to withstand hurricanes and other violent storms we have several doors in our Titan series that have complied with the rigors of testing--Titan 50, Titan 90, Titan 85, Titan 120 and Titan 142.
IIBP periodically tests and retests our doors when we develop and reengineer key components to verify that the quality and strength of our sliding glass doors improves. For testing, we use the widely known Hurricane Test Laboratory to conduct all necessary procedures for pressure, precipitation infiltration, and impact* resistance.
*LARGE MISSILE IMPACT RESISTANCE: The purpose for large missile impact resistance testing is to demonstrate the ability of the sliding door and glass to withstand the impact of large missiles that would be blown about in a hurricane or other high wind event. To pass, the door and glass panel must remain in place and protect the interior space from the devastating winds. To simulate a large missile, an eight foot piece of 2" x 4" yellow pine lumber is shot from an air cannon at the door and glass panel at multiple places on the door. After the impact, the door panel is placed in a pressure chamber and subjected to cyclic pressures that simulate the gusting winds of a hurricane.
*SMALL MISSILE IMPACT RESISTANCE: The purpose of small missile testing is to simulate the impacts of small missiles, small rocks from roof tops, and other small debris and id tested with small ball bearings. On all small and large impact missile tests, Plaza uses "dry set" impact resistant glass in a marine-type gasket for ease of replacing damaged glass from a storm or accident while still retaining the same strength as the original installation.
*NON-IMPACT RATED PRODUCTS: The requirement for testing on products that require shutters is due to the wind pressures only. Shutters will only shield from flying debris and not the wind pressure. The door must withstand the same pressure either way.
