Accordion widows that are hurricane rated


I'm building a bay front home in Avalon, NJ and would like to open the family room and wet bar areas up to the pool. Are there any accordion doors (one set would be floor to ceiling and the other would be just above bar) that I could use? I think they need to be rated 110.

I can no imagine a weaker window system in a hurricane.
Once there blown out there's nothing going to be holding that roof down.
You just created a huge sail.

Joe...you need to see some of the systems that are out there.

My brother in law does them in CO and they are blast proof.

They are not make you poop yourself "oh my goodness that is expensive" proof but they do exist.

And what's going to happen to the bottom track when it fills with snow and ice?
