Marine Doors

Norco's ability to meet the large-scale door needs of the maritime industry separates Norco Universal Doors from all others. There are several reasons that our doors have been used around the world and in many applications. Our doors are built to last, because Norco utilizes hurricane force construction coupled with galvanized steel for humid, salt water environments.

What is Hurricane Force Construction?

Hurricane force construction is a building construction method that is specifically designed to withstand the high winds and heavy rain associated with hurricanes and tropical storms. It typically involves using a combination of techniques and materials to reinforce the building against these extreme weather events, such as reinforced roofing, impact-resistant windows and doors, structural bracing, secure anchoring, and proper drainage systems. The goal of hurricane force construction is to provide a building that is durable and resilient in the face of harsh weather conditions, protecting both the occupants and the structure itself.

The Role Of Galvanized Steel

The main role that galvanized steel plays in hurricane force construction is to provide corrosion resistance. Galvanized steel is steel that has been coated with a layer of zinc, which helps to protect the underlying steel from rust and corrosion. In humid, salt water environments, such as those found in coastal areas, steel structures are particularly vulnerable to corrosion. This is because the salt in the air can react with the steel, causing it to corrode and weaken over time.

Protect Your Marina Assets

Marinas and boat storage units are vulnerable to extreme weather events, such as hurricanes, tropical storms, and high winds. These events can cause significant damage to the structure and contents of the boat storage unit, including the doors. Norco offers insulated doors for those areas with extreme weather, especially dry boat storage during the cold winter months.

For these reasons, it is important to use doors that are specifically designed to withstand these environmental and weather conditions. Norco’s marine doors can provide superior protection against corrosion and extreme weather events, helping to ensure the safety and security of the boats and equipment stored within the unit. They come in a variety of customizable sizes and configurations to meet your facility's requirements & dimensions. When you work with Norco you can rest assured that you are getting high quality and virtually indestructible doors to protect all of your marina assets.
