Coastal & Impact Information

For many, living on the ocean is one of life's dreams. Today that dream seems to come with an increasing cost. Hurricanes and other severe weather patterns can put a constant pressure on you and your home.

Many coastal regions have specific standards for doors that require unique product performance. To fulfill the pressing need for products that stand up to the rigors of everyday living in these regions, Masonite has designed and built the2015 Masonite Steel and Fiberglass StormGuard™ collection of Impact Rated Doors and Glass. This exclusive collection meets certain building codes without compromising the ultimate beauty of the door.

If you don't want to live with bulky metal frames, Masonite's coastal products offer a difference you can see. The newly designed Hurricane-Lite™ frame looks like a standard frame but it satisfies HVHZ (High Velocity Hurricane Zone) requirements. Hurricane-Lite frames have standard window cut-outs that will accommodate impact rated glass. This system simplifies assembly without compromising the beauty of your home.
