Garage Door Braces
Secure Door® is an extremely effective, Florida Building Code approved (FL6420), highly affordable solution that provides wind protection for garage doors in the event of a major hurricane. The product is a vertical bracing system made from high quality aircraft-grade aluminum that attaches to the inside of the garage door. Secure Door® hurricane garage door protection strengthens the door and provides support for the door in addition to the garage door tracks. Secure Door® is a patented hurricane garage door brace that converts most existing garage doors to a hurricane-resistant garage door. While no garage door can be considered a hurricane proof garage door, Secure Door’s exceptional performance capabilities have been proven through independent laboratory tests and may be as close to that goal as possible.

Do You Know That …
According to the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes about 80 percent of residential hurricane wind damage starts with wind entry through garage doors?
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has identified the loss of the garage door as one of four major factors in homes damaged and destroyed in Hurricane Andrew?
As the American Red Cross warns, if your garage door fails, the full fury of the hurricane will enter your house and in all probability blow off your roof and destroy your home?
• Much less expensive than hurricane-resistant garage doors and garage door shutters.
• More effective than retrofitted horizontal garage door braces.
• Can be set up in three minutes or less should a hurricane threaten.
• Does not attach permanently to the garage door; stores inconspicuously and conveniently out of the way.
• Does not require a building permit for purchase or installation.
• May qualify you for some type of homeowners insurance discount.

• Lightweight, requires no maintenance.
Reinforces the garage door and provides an anchor and support in addition to the garage door tracks.
Secure Door® is designed for do-it-yourself installation by most homeowners. Set up and installation requires an electric drill, a ½" masonry bit, a 5/16 inch socket driver, a crescent or socket wrench, a hammer, scissors or utility knife, and a single blade screwdriver. The set-up and installation of the first brace typically can be completed in about 45 minutes with additional braces taking less time. FUSION can install your door for you at a very reasonable cost if you the homeowner do not wish to install the brace(s).
Once the initial installation is complete, Secure Door® is removed until needed. When not in use, only the top bracket
(attached to the wall above the garage door) and the bolts for the floor anchor remain permanently in place. The floor
anchor bolts fit flush and inconspicuously out of the way on the garage floor. After the initial installation is complete, each
Secure Door® brace can be put in place should a hurricane threaten (and subsequently taken down) in less than three
