Pultrusion Stile and Rail P-Series Doors

P-Series Hurricane Rated Door

P-SERIES HURRICANE RATED DOOR SYSTEM

Chem-Pruf P-Series Hurricane Rated fiberglass door systems have the strength and ratings behind it to meeting Florida Building Code (FBC), Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), and the International Building Code (IBC) for hurricane rated openings. The Chem-Pruf P-Series Hurricane Rated door is constructed with a phenolic impregnated kraft honeycomb core surrounded by a pultruded FRP tubular structural stile, rail, and midrail sub-frame. Hardware reinforcement provides the ultimate strength for screw retention and compression resistance. The door panels are completed with a strong chemical bond that fully integrates all components using a press-mold technology and are factory finished with a semi-gloss urethane topcoat. The Chem-Pruf P-Series Hurricane Rated doors are shipped fully prepped for hardware and come with a lifetime warranty!

Hurricane Rated -The Chem-Pruf P-Series Hurricane Rated door has successfully tested to meet or exceed the requirements of the Florida Building Code (FBC), Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), and the International Building Code (IBC) for hurricane rated openings. This product has been assigned Florida Product Approval Number FL26592 and TDI Approval TX-4834 through TX-4838. These requirements include meeting specific design pressures up to and including +/- 100 pounds per square foot and large missile impact resistance with no shutters required. These pressures can translate to protection from wind speeds in excess of 200 mph*.

Gelcoat -The skins for the door begin with the application of an “in mold” 25-30 mil gel coat. A connective tissue is formed with a chopped strand glass fiber mat, followed by a muscular bi-axial glass fiber structural reinforcement layer that further strengthens the door skins.

The composite skins are simultaneously fused onto both faces and all edges of the door under pressure until cured - not only to the FRP sub-frame but to the entire honeycomb core - forming a bond that fully integrates all components. This is a highly advanced method of assembly using press-mold technology. Each door is factory finished with a specially formulated multi-component polyurethane industrial chemical coating for the semi-gloss color topcoat.

Pultrusion Stile and Rail –The stile and rail construction starts with a phenolic impregnated kraft honeycomb core surrounded by a rigid high-modulus, pultruded FRP tubular structural stile, rail, and midrail sub-frame.

At each of the sealed corner joints and hardware locations of the sub-frame, non-hygroscopic polymer blocking is inserted as reinforcement, providing the ultimate in strength for screw retention and compression resistance.
