Amarr's Red Flag Ready Doors
You don't have to compromise style for preparedness. Practically every door that Amarr offers is available with a wind load reinforcement system to withstand high-wind conditions. Red Flag Ready garage doors look identical from the outside and are engineered to meet local building codes on the inside. Simply choose the door style that is right for you and an authorized dealer/installer will handle the rest. Amarr wind load approved doors use a variety of reinforcement materials to meet specific building code requirements ranging from struts to a C-channel, R-Truss, or Vertical Post, and may require hardware modifications.

 Local government regulations for wind load requirements can vary from one location to another, due to such things as door size, the door’s location on the structure, and localized wind zones, among other factors. Only qualified architects, contractors, and installers should interpret building codes and similar regulations for the selection and installation of garage doors to meet local wind load requirements.

The Weather Channel® and Amarr have joined forces to create a nationwide safety and preparedness campaign called "Red Flag Ready" dedicated to increasing public awareness of the need for preparation ahead of the storm along with the need for reinforced garage doors for high wind conditions.
