These patented hurricane garage door braces offer excellent wind protection for even a cheap, 26 guage, rolled steel, double car garage door, all the while remaining very cost effective.

Residential Garage Door Brace
If you do not have a hurricane rated garage door, you need this product to keep your door from being either blown in or sucked out. Once that happens, your roof is the next item to leave your home.
Commercial Garage Door Brace
We have the only commercial garage door brace for warehouse roll down doors. This works on the same principal as the residential except it mounts on the outside of the door and can extend up to 14 feet in height.
Features & Benefits
Client Service is our top priority!
Did you know: the garage door is potentially the largest and weakest opening in many home to a hurricane? According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), loss of the garage door was a major factor for homes damaged or destroyed in Hurricane Andrew.
Even with shutters, if your garage door fails, the full force of the hurricane will enter your home and possibly blow off your roof and seriously damage or destroy your home. Hurricanes exert both a positive (inward) and negative (outward) pressure on all of your home’s walls and openings … including your garage door. 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.
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. To keep your garage door securely in place, you must not allow the garage door to bend.
