Engineered to Meet Hurricanes Head-On

Hurricane Andrew, which caused such massive damage to Florida in 1992, taught  researchers that violent winds alone are not the major cause of window failure.

The real cause is flying objects. As a result, codes for hurricane protection now focus on impact protection for windows and doors, not just wind velocity.

PGT WinGuard Impact-Resistant Windows and Doors combine heavy-duty aluminum  frames with impact- resistant glass. A special silicone glazing process keeps  the glass from breaking away from the frame. Although the glass may crack on impact, the interlayer keeps the glass intact, preventing destructive wind from  entering your home.

Impact-resistant glass is comprised of two glass panes bonded with a special interlayer of clear polyvinylbutyral. Similar to auto windshields, but three times stronger, it provides amazing protection against flying debris.

Keep Debris and Wind Out - and Your Roof On

Homeowner Damage due to Hurricane Force Winds 

When flying objects pierce windows and doors, hurricane-force winds enter the home.  Internal pressure causes the roof to blow off, resulting in massive wind and water damage.

PGT WinGuard Flying Debris Test

WinGuard Impact-Resistant Windows and Doors pass stringent Large and Small Missile Impact Tests. In the Large Missile Impact Test, a window is subjected to two impacts by a nine-pound 2 x 4 beam traveling at a speed of 50 feet per second. Then this “impacted” window is subjected to hurricane-force winds. The polyvinylbutyral interlayer keeps the window intact and sealed against wind even if glass is cracked by a flying object.
