PGT® WinGuard® Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors

PGT® WinGuard® Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors

PGT’s impact windows and doors help protect your home and loved ones from flying debris during hurricanes, as well as from would-be intruders. They enhance the appearance of your home and include energy-efficient options to help reduce your energy bills.

Florida Storm Protection offers PGT’s WinGuard Hurricane Impact Windows and Doors.

WinGuard has two product lines–Aluminum and Vinyl–both offering the benefits described below:

  • Hurricane-Force Wind Protection
  • WinGuard impact-resistant windows and doors resist penetration by flying debris. They are built to withstand repeated impact from a nine-pound, 2’ by 4’ beam traveling at 34 miles per hour, followed by hurricane-force winds. If the glass does become damaged, it will remain securely in its frame, keeping the elements outside.

  • Beautification and Increased Property Value
    PGT’s impact windows and doors will improve the aesthetics of your property, increasing curb appeal. Your property value will also go up.

  • Insurance Savings
    Save up to 35% on your homeowner’s insurance premiums.

  • Intruder Deterrence
    A durable interlayer material is used, which keeps glass in place and prevents breakage, thereby deterring intruders.

  • Noise Reduction
    WinGuard windows and doors reduce ambient noise by up to 65%. They do this by absorbing sound, rather than transmitting it. This significantly lowers the amount of outside noise entering your home.

  • Energy Efficiency
    Lower your energy bills by up to 25-50%. Thicker glass reduces the solar heat gain within your home. PGT’s windows seal much better than builder-grade windows, keeping your AC inside your home. Low-E energy film (optional feature) further reduces the solar gain within your home and reduces visibility inside from the outside. Low-E energy film has a light green hue.

  • UV Protection
    Winguard Aluminum products feature a clear interlayer that filters out 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. This helps your furniture, carpet, artwork, and drapes retain their original quality.

  • Glass Breakage & Adherence to Frame Vs Single Pane Glass
    WinGuard® laminated products may crack if impacted, but glass pieces stay adhered to the laminate and secured in the frame. This is a benefit over single pane annealed glass, which will fracture into large pieces and will not be held in the frame after breaking.

  • 10-Year Warranty on WinGuard Aluminum
