ADA Compliant Hurricane Protection System

This system is designed to create an ADA Compliant / Wheelchair Accessible, sturdy airtight system which will prevent water and air infiltration in hurricane prone areas. Since products in this system will take abuse from the harsh outdoor environment this system is specifically comprised of heavy duty, commercial grade products that are built to withstand abuse! The system combines a Cam Lift Hinge, a Door Gasket, two Weatherstripings, two Door Bottoms, a Rain Drip and a Doorway Threshold.

Cam Lift Hinge (Z955)This cam lift, mortised architectural hinge is made of heavy duty material and is compatible with medium weight doors. The cam lift motion raises the door while it swings open and drops it when the door is closed, creating a tight seal around the perimeter of the door which prevents extraneous infiltration.

Door Gasket with Adjustable Neoprene Seal (Z870): This heavy duty door gasket is applied along the stop around the perimeter of the door frame. When the door is closed, the solid neoprene seal is compressed to prevent infiltration of extraneous elements. The enhanced design of the seal has an extruded bulb and finger which compensates for any misalignment of the door or gasket installation and will ensures a proper seal, even with some surface irregularities. In case of natural warping or shifting of the door, the seal is easily adjusted with a screwdriver.

Self-Adhesive Batwing Style Silicone Weatherstrip (Z8144): This self-adhesive weatherstrip is applied along the gap between the door stop and the door, to compensate for any extra gaps and ensure a constantly secure seal. The convenient adhesive backing allows for no-hassle installation.

Metal Cushion Weatherstrip (Z119W): This weatherstrip is applied along the top and sides of the door. This weatherstrip is slightly compressed when the door is closed to create a seal that will prevent water from seeping between into the door frame.

Aluminum Door Bottom with Neoprene Seal (Z39): This door bottom is applied to the interior side of the door to fill any extra gap between the door bottom and the threshold seal. It is fitted with a solid neoprene seal which will seal gaps from water, dust, drafts, fire and smoke.

Aluminum Door Bottom with Solid Neoprene Ring Seal (Z328): This door bottom has an aluminum retainer which holds a durable solid neoprene ring seal. It is applied to the bottom of the exterior side of the door. When the door is closed, the seal is lightly compressed against the face of the saddle threshold to form an airtight seal and prevent infiltration of air and water.

Aluminum Rain Drip (Z142): This rain drip is applied to the top of the door to deflect water and prevent infiltration through the gap above the door.

Low Profile Doorway Threshold with Neoprene Gasket (Z65): This doorway threshold is applied to the bottom of the door to prevent seepages. It can fill gaps of .25". It is fitted with a solid neorpene bulb seal which is compressed when the door is closed to ensure a proper seal at all times.
