It's a case of exceeding standards, in a difficult situation.
Martin Garage Doors were recently installed on officer housing at a U. S. Navy base on Guam.
Guam is an island known for its heavy winds and the 86 garage doors installed, meet Miami-Dade wind load standards. But the unique doors went way beyond being able to handle heavy winds.
Navy officials wanted a certain look in the housing for officers and requested a color not available on the regular easel of 77 powder coat colors available to Martin customers---Charlie Brown.
Because Martin has the ability to customize the color of a door, getting doors in the specialty color was not a problem.
Charlie Brown is a deep, rich brown color, and the newly installed doors sparkle in the new development, which Dave Martin visited earlier this year.
The quiet nature of the unique doors, with so many quality and safety features, left officials commenting that their expectations were exceeded.
"It makes you feel good they liked the doors and to know they were better than expected," Martin said of the reaction.
When Dave Martin visited the worksite, at one point he climbed a tall ladder to help make an adjustment on a garage door.
