Hurricane Rated

Hurricane Rated Sliding Door Systems 

Hurricane season is scary, even when you’re prepared for the elemental onslaught. While boarding up doors and laying down sandbags can prevent damage from wind and airborne debris, hurricane-rated sliding door systems from Horton Automatics offer unmatched protection.

Design and Construction Features

Our Miami-Dade County-approved sliding door systems can withstand pressures up to 85 pounds-per-square-foot, one of which is the highest PSF ratings of any commercial sliding door on the market. Heavy-duty rails with integrated steel tubing and corner blocks combine to create robust structural integrity that’s far superior to the through-bolt panels found in mass-produced sliding door systems. A three-point locking system ensures the doors are secure and anchored when inoperable.  Panic hardware is an option for those buildings that require egress to be available at all times.

Horton Automatics hurricane-rated sliding door systems meet the most stringent wind force ratings for coastal areas as well as inland areas affected by tropical storms. They are the best defense against storm surges, damaging debris, and powerful winds.
