Republic hurricane-certified doors and frames combine the strength of specially designed doors and frames with the trusted security of Allegion hardware. Impact and non-impact hurricane pressure resistant doors and ME/SE Series frames that meet certified listing approvals are designed to stand up to nature’s fiercest barrage of wind and water.
Hurricane assemblies are extensively tested in various product configurations to comply with key certification agencies for listing approved door assemblies for resistance to hurricane forces:
Florida Building Code (FBC) - uses HUR(I) DL/DE Impact and DP/DL/DE Non-Impact E330 doors with Allegion hardware
Miami-Dade (MD) is not specifically listed but uses FBC listings where HVHZ is specified
For TDI approved product, please contact your Allegion sales representative.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Listed Features and Benefits correspond to FBC requirements. For questions on TDI, contact your local sales representative.

Commercial buildings in hurricane zones near the Atlantic coast, and Gulf of Mexico, as well as any high wind area
Impact door assemblies are required for wind-borne debris regions within one mile of the coastal high water line where FBC wind speed maps designate 130 mph or greater; also any areas designated > 140 mph
Non-impact door assemblies are required for all exterior openings not already labeled for impact and higher pressures, typically inland <130 mph wind zones (not only hurricane, but any high wind prone region)
