Miami dade

On July 21, 2011, Lanai Doors™ received Notice of Acceptance (NOA) from from Miami-Dade County for both outswing and inswing aluminum folding door and window systems. Lanai Doors™ was the first company to test and obtain Miami-Dade County hurricane approvals using the Centor E3 folding hardware. After updating for code changes, Lanai Doors™ current NOA numbers are 16-0303.03 and 16-0303.02, which expire on July 21, 2021. Additionally, these products received Certificate of Product Approval from the State of Florida (FL14768.1 R3 & FL14768.2 R3) and Product Evaluation numbers from the Texas Department of Insurance (DR-568 & DR-569). TDI, along with many other state codes, requires compliance with the International Residential Code (IRC) and International Building Code (IBC). Lanai Doors™ completed tests as detailed in ASTM E 1886 & ASTM E 1996.

Highly Rated

Highly Rated

Lanai Doors™ hurricane aluminum bi-fold system is DP-70 rated (165 mph winds) for Miami-Dade County HVHZ large and small missiles. Lanai's hurricane system also satisfies other wind-borne debris region building codes from the East Coast to the Gulf of Mexico to all of the Caribbean and Hawaiian Islands.
Lanai's standard raised threshold obtained higher individual structural and cycling results. Structurally, the standard threshold achieved a DP-80 negative (177 mph winds) and DP-100 positive (198 mph winds) and successfully cycled at DP-90 (188 mph winds) for both outswing and inswing configurations.

Top-hung, Sleek Look

Lanai's hurricane-certified systems are manufactured in the United States using the best component parts available. One critical part is the Centor E3 top-hung folding hardware. Unlike bottom roller systems that bind or clog with debris, Lanai's hurricane top-hung system will open and close with ease. Centor E3 hardware is so robust that the Lanai Doors™ hurricane systems only needs three stainless steel hinges between each panel. The lack of multiple hinges complements Lanai's sleek clean look of their 1-3/4 inch thick panels which are made with 3-inch wide stiles and 3-5/8 inch top and bottom rails. With the right design, your hurricane bi-fold glass wall system does not have to look or feel like a fortress.

Custom Flexibility

With up to 16 panels (maximum of three-foot wide by eight-foot tall), Lanai Doors™ can fill a 48-foot wide opening while providing three unique threshold options. With 160 different layout configurations, Lanai can custom design applications that fold up to eight panels to each side of your opening while folding to either the outside or inside. The extensive hurricane testing by Lanai Doors™ resulted in the largest and most flexible top-hung aluminum folding system available today.

Air & Water Tight

Lanai Doors™ qualified three thresholds (a raised water-tight standard, an ADA compliant lowrise and a flush lowrise) for Miami-Dade HVHZ testing. Lanai's standard threshold achieved air infiltration of 0.02 cfm/ft2 for 1.57 psf (which is 15 times better than the allowable 0.30) and 0.05 cfm/ft2 for 6.24 psf! Lanai's outswing standard threshold is water tight up to DP-55. For water-tight applications with 100% overhang, all three thresholds are acceptable.

Customize

Lanai Doors™ folding glass walls can be customized to fit the needs of your project. Do you want 3 panels stacking to the left and a swing door to the right, or all of them to the right? Maybe you want a stationary side-lite with 5 folding panels? If you have an idea, let us know, and we will try to make it happen. The following is a list of some of the many customizations that we can do for you:

  • Panels sizes up to 36” wide by 96” tall
  • Over 150 different configurations (3 left-1 right, 8 right, Inswing, Outswing, etc.)
  • Optional oversized bottom and top rails (7-3/16” and 10-13/16”)
  • Multiple threshold types from weather-tight to commercial to seamless
  • Custom glass available, we will work with our suppliers to find the glass that you need for your project
  • Hinge hardware finishes can be Stainless Steel or Dark Bronze PVD or Bright Brass (Gold)
  • Locking hardware is available in White, Satin Chrome, Brushed Chrome, or Dark Bronze
  • Aluminum finishes can be custom anodized, and custom painted to match any color and Kynar finishes
  • Stationary side lite integrated with the folding panels
  • Pass through windows
  • Accessibility control locking options
  • Custom Insect Screen Integration

Performance

Lanai Doors™ Aluminum Hurricane-certified Folding Door & Window Systems :

Lanai Doors™ DP-70 rated aluminum hurricane folding systems exceed Miami-Dade County, Florida, Texas, and all other wind speed codes established across the United States. States up and down the East Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and Hawaiian Islands have implemented building codes (i.e. Florida Building Code and International Building Code) requiring the use of hurricane certified products. The Florida Building Code High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) provisions apply to both Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, Florida. The non-HVHZ provisions apply to the rest of Florida. Most other states have implemented the International Building Codes which require hurricane products for wind-borne debris regions. In addition, Caribbean Island builders are requiring stronger impact resistant products with Miami-Dade hurricane certification.
