"Storm-proofing garage doors can save a home!"

Protecting your garage ultimately means protecting your home.

- George Palmer, owner All Florida Hurricane Depot
Please allow a moment for the video to load.

The manufacture suggests the following number of braces depending upon the size of the garage door being protected:

Single car garage:  minimum of one (1) brace is required for wind speeds up to 179 mph (miles per hour).

Two car garage:  minimum of two (2) braces for wind speeds up to 169 mph and  optionally three (3) braces for wind speeds up to 180 mph.

Two and one half garage: minimum of three (3) braces


It's More than Affordable! Now our Do-It-Yourself All-In-One Secure Door garage door brace installation kit is only $160 (includes an additional drill bit you won't find packaged with other kits). That is many times cheaper than your out-of-pocket insurance deductible!

SAVE YOURSELF THE TRIP! WE BEAT HOME IMPROVEMENT STORE PRICING ON BOTH BRACES AND LABOR, AND WE DELIVER (Do-It-Yourselfers, we will even pre-assemble your braces to make it even easier to install.)

It's Effective: Secure Door is a patented, statewide Florida Building Code approved garage door brace that was successfully tested to protect a home's largest and weakest opening ... the garage door. Testing showed that Secure Door offers excellent wind protection for even a cheap, 26 guage, rolled steel, double car garage door under hurricane wind conditions rated at a strong Category 5. That's 180 miles per hour. Just for comparison, Hurricane Katrina's maximum winds never exceeded 174 mph.

It's Easy: It only takes 45 minutes for a do-it-yourself person to initially install this storm protection and then only a few minutes to remove or re-secure for future use.

It's Available Now: Secure Door braces are currently in stock and can be either picked up today or delivered via UPS

bullet
Regardless of the type and strength of your garage door, it is only attached to the garage frame by its side-wheels that ride inside the garage door tracks. 
bullet
Garage doors fail when the hurricane winds cause the door to physically bend either inward or outward. This bending shortens the width of the garage door and causes the garage door side-wheels to pull out of the tracks thus detaching the garage door from the frame.
bullet
Without a Secure Door Garage Door Brace
To keep your garage door securely in place, you must not allow the garage door to bend. Here is an example of what can happen without a Secure Door vertical garage door brace.

Advice from FEMA, and Insurance Companies

On September 1998 a booklet entitled "A Homeowners Guide To Hurricane Retrofit" was published by the Institute for Business & Home Safety (in cooperation with FEMA, building officials and insurance companies). The purpose of this booklet was to show how you can best protect your home BEFORE the storm.

On pages 12 & 13 it graphically emphasizes how vertical bracing should be attached to the door's hinges to retrofit a non-hurricane rated garage door or to further strengthen a rated door.

The illustrations  match Secure Door's patented product that is attached to the garage door header, garage floor and to each hinge or door shackle on the garage door.
