Could someone help me with this problem?

I have a scenario where a glass door is being caught by the wind and slamming against a door stop and shattering. I would like to work out the impact energy of the door hitting the stop, and if possible an equivalent static force.

The door is 1.5m wide, 3.0m high and constructed of 15mm glass, (170kg total weight).

The wind load is 2.14kN/m^2

The door opens 90 degrees with the door stop 350mm from the pivot. The pivot is 100mm in from the edge of the door.

Thank you.
