    Permitting of Used Raynor Door

    Post  stevick on Mon Apr 16, 2018 7:09 pm

    I am a homeowner who could really use the benefit of your advice and/or experience.  I am planning a low-budget garage addition to my Sarasota, FL home.  Perhaps foolishly, I jumped on a deal to buy a nice used 18' x 7' Raynor Classic garage door (Model P-1322, with 5 center stiles and Colonial glass) for use on the project.  The door is wind rated and Florida DBPR approved (#FL1652), but under the 2001 building code only.  Local building officials tell me that product approval under the current 2017 code is generally required for permitting the installation.  Raynor discontinued the model and stopped selling it 2 or more years ago, did not get more a recent approval, and cannot offer any additional assistance.  I located the Wind Load Spec. Sheet, which shows this door tested per ATSM E-330(2002)/DASMA 108(2003) at Design: +/-21.3 PSF, Test: +/-32.0 PSF.  Per the 2017 code, the applicable requirements would be +20.4/-22.7 PSF [tested per ATSM E-330(2014)/DASMA 108(2012)], as I am in a 150 mph wind zone with a mean roof height of 30' or less and a B exposure (my best guess, as I am on a heavily wooded 1 acre lot in a subdivision of homes).  I am unable to confirm it, but believe the revised testing standards would not have affected the testing results.  I am hoping to make the case to local officials to use their discretion to permit my installation (by a licensed professional) notwithstanding the lack of a current DPBR product approval.

    Am I wrong in assuming that I have a good case to make here?  The cost of a new garage door, when added to the other construction costs will blow my very modest budget, so I really hope to use the one I bought.  Can anyone offer any advice or tips on how I might be able to get this through?  Any help or advice would be welcome.  Thanks in advance...
