Impact Doors in South Florida

When it comes to home security, it’s essential to choose the best options to protect your loved ones and belongings. One of the most important elements in safeguarding your home is selecting the right doors. While there are numerous types of doors on the market, here at SAP Windows and Doors, impact doors are becoming increasingly popular due to their durability and strength.

What are impact doors?

Impact doors are designed to withstand strong forces, such as high winds, hurricanes, and break-ins. They are typically made of durable materials, such as tempered glass, aluminum, or steel, and are reinforced with impact resistant features like laminated glass, sturdy frames, and impact resistant glazing.

Types of Impact Doors

Entrance Door

Hurricane doors, also known as impact doors or storm doors, are specially designed doors that are built to withstand the strong winds, flying debris, and high-pressure conditions associated with hurricanes and other severe weather events. These doors are commonly used in areas prone to hurricanes, such as coastal regions.

The glass used in hurricane doors is specially engineered to resist shattering upon impact, reducing the risk of injury and property damage. Additionally, hurricane doors are constructed with sturdy frames and hardware to ensure structural integrity and stability during extreme weather conditions.

Sliding Doors

A sliding door, also known as a slider or sliding glass door, is a type of door that operates by sliding horizontally along a track. Unlike traditional hinged doors that swing open and closed, sliding doors move parallel to the wall, either to the left or right.

The movable panel(s) glide along tracks located at the top and bottom of the door frame, allowing for smooth and effortless operation. Some sliding doors may have all panels movable, while others may have one fixed panel and one or more sliding panels.

Bi-Fold Doors

A bi-fold door, also known as a folding door or accordion door, is a type of door that consists of multiple panels (usually two or more) hinged together. These panels are connected by hinges in such a way that they can fold in on themselves as the door is opened or closed. Bi-fold doors are designed to slide along a track system, allowing them to be folded compactly to one side of the opening when fully open, thereby saving space.

Overall, bi-fold doors offer a practical and stylish solution for maximizing space, and enhancing natural light.

Patio French Doors

A patio French door is a type of door commonly used in homes that leads from indoor living spaces, such as a living room or kitchen, to an outdoor patio or deck area.

These doors typically consist of a pair of doors with glass panels extending for most of their length. The glass panels allow natural light to enter the interior space and provide a clear view of the outdoor area.

Garage Doors

Garage doors are large doors designed to provide access to a garage, a space primarily used for housing vehicles, storage, or other purposes. These doors are typically larger and heavier than standard exterior or interior doors to accommodate vehicles such as cars, trucks, or motorcycles.

Garage doors can be classified into several types based on their operating mechanisms and materials used:

  • Sectional Garage Doors
  • Roll-up Garage Doors
  • Swing-Out Garage Doors
  • Slide-to-Side Garage Doors
