Probably, but not enough definitive information. Yes, it is laminated glass. Your call...

Glad it is not my call, this wasn't a wind mit. Just curious if it was your call, what everyone thinks here.

The glass stamp is not an approval.
Even if it was, there's still nothing for the door.
I feel bad for my clients when it happens.

The door is definitely way more secure than any standard rated door we see on most inspections.

Yup, shame when you know it is but can't call it when you don't see any information. Better to be safe than sorry.

Thats is why we need the OIR completely torn down and re-built. They should be regulating the insurance companies and the form they "oir" produce.

Now the insurance companies tell them what to do. Hurts so many people.

My call would be at this time, no. My next call would be to the manufacturer, if I could obtain it at the inspection, to see what it is rated for.

I did an inspection on a home with doors very similar to that one. The clients had the permits as well as all the literature for them. I put pictures of that into the report.

Those doors are nice. Cost is well over the $10,000. But doesn't make it impact rated. How close to the coast? Your in Collier County which the wind rating is 180mph if I am not mistaken.

Although they are laminated and the manufacturer makes mention of it having impact resistance they do not give any product approval. You will have to ask the homeowner for documentation or look for a permit

For $100 or usually much less, tel calls to anyone other than Mom and Dad to borrow money are way ouuuuuuut of the question!

Unfortunately, I can see a big huge can of worms getting opened up when the next big storm hits FL.

Default Re: Imapct Rated?

did you check the other side to see if that pane was LSG or laminated??
impact glass may have only 1 side that is laminated.
