Original Press Release:

New Steelcraft(TM) H-Series Doors are Hurricane Resistant

CINCINNATI-December 12, 2002...Steelcraft's new H-Series Hurricane Resistant Flush Doors provide the ultimate protection against hurricanes and the extreme wind loads and large flying objects they generate. The doors conform to all industry standards and have been independently tested in accordance with the latest Florida Building Code and Miami-Dade County Test Protocols TAS/PA 201, 202 and 203.

Among their standard features, H-Series doors include a full-height lock-side reinforcement channel, which ensures their structural stability and the functionality of their locking hardware under extreme pressure. They also incorporate full height, epoxy filled mechanical interlock edges that provide structural support and stability over the complete height of the door edges. Top and bottom channels are 14 gage, to provide stability and protect the top and bottom edges from abuse. Other features include patented universal hinge preparations that allow field conversion from standard to heavy weight hinges, and beveled hinge and lock edges that allow tighter installation tolerances, ensure easier operation, and eliminate binding or sticking.

Series H doors are available up to maximum opening sizes of 4'0" x 8'0" single or 8'0" x 8'0" double. To meet application, specification and performance requirements, they are offered with a wide range of specifiable options, including sizes, core types, glass lite designs, hardware preparations, and edge constructions. Depending on hardware and core options, they are UL fire-rated at up to 3 hours.

Recessed Dezigner(TM) glass trim provides a clean, neat and flush finish with the door surface. The doors are supplied with factory-applied baked-on rust-inhibiting primer in accordance with ANSI A250.10.
