Impact Resistant Glass Windows and Doors For Hurricane Protection
Hurricane doors are made of a strong, waterproof material called plywood or metal. In high wind situations, the plywood is often left in place to protect the other materials inside the building from the impact of the hurricane. In some cases, the metal can be reinforced with reinforcing bars or steel wire but is most often made from galvanized steel that can withstand the force of the wind and not tear easily. The wood board used is typically six inches thick or more and has been treated with a water based glue to prevent it from rotting during a severe storm.
