Borano offers impact doors that have been certified by Dade County, Florida as being safe for areas in which severe weather is a real concern. New codes for what makes a door impact-resistant were established in 2002, as a reaction to the damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Andrew. All of the doors in Borano's impact-resistant product line have been subjected to arduous testing and certification procedures.
The tests that are conducted on impact doors determine whether or not the doors are susceptible to air and water leakage. In a hurricane or other severe weather, the doors and windows on a house are a vitally important line of defense against damage to the people and possessions inside. If the doors cannot withstand strong winds and rain or will crack and splinter when struck by flying debris, they cannot be certified as impact-resistant.
Of course, a mahogany door that can hold up against a hurricane is also going to offer extra protection against forced entry. Knowing that your loved ones are safe behind a 2 3/8-inch thick Honduran mahogany door can really strengthen your peace of mind. No matter how strong and tough their doors, Borano never sacrifices anything in the way of aesthetic appeal.
Borano prides itself on offering custom-crafted doors to fit any client specifications. They offer their mahogany doors in a wide variety of gorgeous styles, and are happy to give their clients the choice of arched, elliptical, or straight top cuts.
