Until recently, designers seeking hurricane-rated doors were limited in the size of the door openings they could create. The ASSA ABLOY Resilience R128 hurricane-resistant automatic sliding door is available with medium stile door panels, 10” bottom rails, an innovative dry glazing system, up to 114 psf design pressure for full impact packages, and in heights all the way up to 128”.

The team selected these sliding doors so that students and staff could continue lessons as usual, even while the Santa Ana winds blow.
