Wind Loaded Service door :
Commercial warehouse doors are larger and therefore vulnerable to wind induced pressure during severe windstorms, Inward and outward forces will find a weak links . There are simple additions to door system that create a more wind resistant design. Determination of wind load on rolling door involves a number of factors. One factors is the effective wind area on the door. This depends on Door width [ span length in ASCE 7 ] and Door height [ width in ASCE 7] The main concept to overcome this problem is “ Two way load sharing “. For Rolling doors this means that wind loads are distributed both horizontally and vertically. Rolling doors acts more like a diaphragm. The slats are interconnected such a way that they move relative to each other but the relative movement is limited. The result is that the slat acts together, not separately. They share the load. The whole curtain assembly transmits loading horizontally to each jamb and vertically to the barrel at the top of the door, where the curtain is securely attached. This load transmission occurs whether or not ‘Wind locks” [ built into the end of slats to enhance wind load capability].
