Wind loads

For the application of industrial doors wind load tables indicate the wind class that has to be achieved. Very high levels of demand may arise due to the location, e.g. along the coasts for rescue boats or in mountain areas for snow cats. In airport premises heavy punctual wind loads can be caused by aircrafts or helicopters. Power stations or mines also frequently require a superior protection against overpressure or underpressure or shock-waves. The Butzbach SPACELITE door series is specifically well adapted to this superior requirement. The robust design, the tear-resistant and extremely solid fiberglass panels and the direct drive with gear motor ensure a high solidity and resistance against wind loads. The champion in terms of wind resistance is our SPACELITE HTU-S STORM. Up to wind load 5 and even with wind force 12 (hurricane) the door can be operated safely, making sure that you can still bring your vehicles inside or leave the garage with rescue vehicles.
