All Galebreaker Door Systems have been designed to meet the stringent European Standard EN 13241 which specifies the safety and performance requirements for doors, gates and barriers intended for installation in industrial, commercial or residential premises. EN 13241 also includes a wind load classification system which all Galebreaker Door Systems adhere to.
Galebreaker has a proud reputation for providing products with outstanding durability against the elements. However, it is impossible for us to legislate against extreme weather conditions. Below is the industry recognised “Beaufort Scale Wind Specifications For Use On Land”. Please note that at Beaufort scale 10 “considerable structural damage” is experienced, and it is these conditions that Galebreaker consider extreme. Topography and location of buildings may also be the cause of localised gusts which must also be taken into consideration. Wind speeds and gusts will be recorded by the local Met Office.
Galebreaker therefore takes a common sense approach to wind damage claims. If wind speeds or gusts have been recorded in excess of “Beaufort Scale 9” at, or near a specific location, we will not cover a claim. In these circumstances, the customer should make a claim against their own insurance company. Where damage has been caused through inadequate installation (including 3rd party), improper securing of the door during adverse conditions, or negligence, we will also be unable to cover a claim. Any claims must be reported to Galebreaker in writing within 30 days, and must be supported by photographs, original purchase order date and invoice number. The customer must also ensure that Galebreaker and/or its representative has access to the damaged product and the site where such damaged occurred. Any claims which are valid will follow our guarantee terms and conditions.
