Mount Washington Observatory near North Conway, New Hampshire is a world-class non-profit research and educational institution working to advance understanding of Earth’s weather and climate. The observatory is well known in part due to its unique location at the heart of some of the world’s most extreme weather conditions, including the highest ever recorded wind speed at 231 mph, annual snow fall of over 250 inches and temperatures that range from -47 F to 72 F.
When the observatory needed rolling doors that met extreme wind load requirements for its visitor’s center and transportation vehicle’s garage, they turned to the experts at Overhead Door of Concord, New Hampshire. OHD Concord installed four Stormtite™ Model 620 rolling steel doors that allow visitors access to the observatory, and one Stormtite™ Model 625 rolling steel door to house and protect the observatory’s vehicles.
Here in Manitoba, we wear our extreme weather stories like a badge of honour and claim to have the coldest and windiest intersection in Canada, that being downtown Winnipeg’s Portage and Main.
At Overhead Door of Winnipeg and Overhead Door of Brandon, we pride ourselves on offering the most durable and reliable residential and commercial overhead doors, able to withstand our weather extremes and fluctuations with ease. We always knew it was true, but we’re very happy that somebody else tested that theory for us!
