Static Wind Load Rolling Doors
Available for Service, Insulated and Fire Rated Rolling Doors.
Static wind loaded doors secure the curtain within the guides when in the closed position to prevent the door from blowing out due to high wind speeds. This is available on service, insulated and fire-rated rolling doors.
Our wind load-rated overhead doors take into consideration design load determination, door mounting and fastening methods along with specific door guide gaps. Cookson is proud to offer one of the top comprehensive product offerings of wind load designed rolling doors in the rolling door industry.
Our wind load-rated overhead doors are validated through several third-party testing facilities to meet one or more of the following performance criteria:
- ASTM E 330
- Miami-Dade County test protocols TAS 201, TAS 202 and TAS 203
- Florida Building Code (FBC)
- Texas Department of Insurance (TDI)
- Signed and Sealed Calculations

Wind load ratings and specifications can be complicated. We are here to help.
If you know only the wind speed and a couple of the other variables for determining the required wind load, the DASMA website has a wind load calculator that determines the approximate
In order to determine the exact psf requirements, the following variables are required: wind speed (in mph), exposure category, door area, mean roof height, roof slope, directionality factor, surrounding topography, zone, positive or negative pressure and internal building pressure.
If you need further assistance, our Architectural Design support team can help you in translating building codes or determining the appropriate wind load. Contact us to discuss your project.
