YKK AP America Expands Protek® Line with 35HL/50HL Entrances
Hurricane impact resistant doors offer a practical solution for coastal buildings
AUSTELL, Ga. (Feb. 10, 2015) – YKK AP America Inc. (YKK AP), a leading source of hurricane impact products for commercial applications, announces the addition of the 35HL/50HL impact resistant entrances to the Protek® product line. The 35HL/50HL medium and wide stile impact resistant doors are the ideal solution for applications where hurricane impact performance and cost are priorities.
The 35HL/50HL high performance hurricane entrance doors are an option for architects who are looking for a high-quality product at a specific price point. The HL series was developed to provide sizes, options and delivery required for fast food and low rise retail projects. These doors offer the quality customers have come to expect and the performance they require, without the extras that add to the cost.
The 35HL/50HL impact resistant entrances were tested to meet large and small missile impact up to 50 PSF. With low maintenance single point hook locks, the doors also meet the stringent standards for Florida’s High Velocity Hurricane Zone, Miami Dade and Broward counties. Each door features the YKK AP unique VersaJamb® design, a reinforced tubular door frame that allows for side-lite glazing without shear clips while maintaining the structural integrity of transom frames. Additionally, the 35HL/50HL entrances with standard low e insulating glass meet 2012 IECC for all climate zones. All doors are mechanically joined and welded and the door corners carry a lifetime warranty.
“YKK AP is dedicated to offering high-quality products that meet the diverse needs of its expansive customer base,” said Greg Galloway, ProTek brand manager for YKK AP. “From coastal buildings to fast food restaurants to high-use office buildings in the heart of a city, YKK AP’s customers have very specific features they are looking for. As we pinpoint the expanding needs of our customers, we’ll continue to evolve the YKK AP product line to grow with them.”
Selected configurations of the value priced 35HL/50HL impact resistance entrances are available for express shipment in 10 to 15 working days. For those who are looking for a product with higher performance and more options, the YKK AP 35H/50H impact resistant and blast mitigating entrances are available.
