Our metal units pass Miami Dade certification
CoorItalia is pleased to announce that Brombal USA, the manufacturer of its Steel and Bronze Windows and Doors, have passed Miami Dade certification.
There are a number of standards that regulate the air & water infiltration standards as well as deformation under stress. Whereas the majority of the USA works under AAMA Standard – 101/I.S.2-A440, the County of Miami Dade (because of their numerous hurricanes) additionally requires the units to twice successfully stop an 8′, 9lb 2×4 that is fired at the window at 50fps (34mph).
Brombal USA are now the first company ever to offer thermally broken steel, bronze, stainless steel and corten hurricane and impact rated product. BROMBAL’s EBE series 6′ x 9′ double door breezed its way through impact and hurricane testing with a DP rating of 65. That means that the units are tested for air, water infiltration and deformation at a wind equivalent of 160mph and any door that size (or less) is certified. Additionally, the 5’ x 12′ narrow sightline rectangular mulled fixed units also passed and are now officially impact and hurricane certified. The narrow sightline certification allows the units to be mulled together to encompass larger spans of glass and continue to maintain the hurricane and impact certification.
