Dade County Approved Wood Entry Doors
There are two impact tests for which entry doors can be approved in Dade County: small-missile resistant and large-missile resistant. These tests simulate the damage that can be caused by small and large projectiles, should they fly toward the door during a hurricane. While being approved in Dade County does not guarantee the survival of the door after experiencing the full force of a hurricane, meeting these standards provides a greater degree of protection to your Dade County home.
The large-missile resistance test hurls a wood stud at entry doors to mimic flying debris (such as a tree limb) at a rate of 50 feet per second. In addition, to be approved in Dade County, the entry doors must also withstand 9,000 cycles of wind loads to ensure that the entry doors can stand up to hurricane force winds. At Borano, you can find a large selection of wood entry doors that have been approved for use in Dade County.

Contributing to the strength of Borano's doors is the Honduran mahogany from which they are crafted. In addition to being made from a dense wood, these doors are 2.375 inches thick, which is much thicker than a standard wood entry door. For their wood entry doors with windows, half inch thick glass is used.
Beyond being approved in Dade County for safety, these wood entry doors are visually stunning. From the intricate carvings to the fine texture of the wood, neighbors will certainly admire your luxurious wood entry door. If you want to experience the same elegance throughout your home, Borano also offers a selection of interior doors and hardwood flooring.
