After extensive testing in many lab settings, Sky-Frame announces the introduction of Sky-Frame Hurricane, its impact-resistant glass doors and windows.

Fulfilling the requirements of Miami-Dade County standards and permitted for design pressure up to 3.6 kN/m2 (75 psf), Sky-Frame Hurricane exceeds the most stringent hurricane impact testing, and is compliant with the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) criteria as defined by the Florida Building Code - considered to be the gold standard in the industry.

This signifies that Sky-Frame Hurricane is appropriate for all areas that may be impacted by hurricanes or other high-wind conditions across the globe. In addition, the frameless sliding doors have successfully passed water resistance testing up to 1050 Pa (22psf), the highest level on the market.

«We have set very ambitious goals to break into new dimensions that to-date, have not been available.»

“These tests have been extremely valuable in furthering our expertise and will allow us to offer our customers in hurricane regions sophisticated architectural options,” says Beat Guhl, CEO and owner of Sky-Frame.

Hurricane’s 2.3 x 3.5 m panels are one of the largest hurricane-rated doors in the world and can be motorized or manually operated with a wide range of opening options. Multi-tracks allow an unlimited number of sliding doors and windows to be installed next to each other. A slim 28 mm sight line offers an unbounded spatial experience for exceptional architectural creations and spectacular views.
