MODEL 724 “MONO” THE ORIGINAL HURRICANE MASTER
Our Highest Wind Load Design Configuration and the Most Comprehensive Hurricane-Ready Commercial Application Door
With the severe angle of the Model 724 helping deflect air-borne debris, and a 24ga skin, the Model 724 had no issues passing the large missile impact test required by Miami Dade to be approved for installation in High Velocity Hurricane Zones.
The Model 724 has been a clear choice for building contractors and warehouse developers for over 30 years. With its unparalleled pressures designed to withstand hurricane force winds, keeping the buildings contents safe and secure during the worst hurricanes, it will continue to serve as a staple for commercial installations, large distribution centers and warehouse bay garage doors for years to come.
- Sections made of 24 GA commercial quality painted galvanized steel material.
- Sheets are roll formed into a 2” Deep Ribbed Section with meeting rails that provide
ship lap weather seal.
- 18 GA End Stiles and 20 GA galvanized steel Center Stiles with pre-punched holes
for precise hardware alignment and superior strength.
- Door sections are pre-fi nished with a 3 coat process consisting of a phosphate
coating, primer coat and a baked on polyester top coat. Standard color is white.
- Optional insulation available for enhanced energy effi ciency (one side or both sides
of the door can be insulated with double painted steel material skin applied for
better performance and aesthetics).
MAXIMUM DESIGN PRESSURES
Each door section incorporates a built-in wind load resistance system to withstand the
intense effects of wind velocities from 90 MPH-200+ MPH for the broadest wind load
*Wind load requirements for each door can differ from one site to another due to such things as door size,
the door’s location on the structure, and localized wind zones, among other factors. For this reason, it is
recommended for a local garage door professional, architect, or engineer to assess the necessary wind
pressures for the given door opening.
Designed in the 1960’s the 724 Mono was the first attempt by anyone to build a garage door to withstand Hurricane force winds. The Mono’s design was so revolutionary that it is used by practically every shutter company today for hurricane protection on both window and door openings.
The original design from the 1960’s exceeded Miami Dade County post Andrew building requirements with only the addition of a few U-Bars. With additional U-Bars, the Model 724 has a Miami Dade County Product Approval with an astounding +101/-116 PSF making it the strongest garage door in the world, delivering the ultimate protection against even though the strongest storms.
