The Fire-Storm® is a combination of the features of Alpine’s Redi-Storm® and Fire-Tite® models. It is Dade County approved for high wind loads (up to 187 mph) as well as UL and MEA approved for fire protection. These are NYC approved doors. These overhead smoke doors come in galvanized or stainless steel and in a variety of different finishes.

Fire-Storm® curtains for these insulated windstorm doors are constructed of IMB-V7 insulated flat steel slats, and can be finished with powder coating or baked enamel finishes. Each of the fire control doors are equipped with a 22 gauge steel hood formed to fit the contour of the end brackets and durable ductile iron windlock with 1/4″ semi-solid rivets. Our NYC approved doors have supports and brackets that are all steel plates no less than 1/4″ thick. Alpine’s Torsion Counterbalance Assembly is state of the art, providing maximum security and ease of use.
