Hurricane / Impact Windows

 

 

Impact Windows

Our hurricane impact windows, the LifeGuard® line, offer superior protection in hurricane or other high wind conditions. Our LifeGuard® windows come in many of the same styles as our traditional windows, meaning your home can maintain a traditional look with the added benefit and safety of insulated impact resistant windows.


If you live in a hurricane prone area, installing impact windows is not only a wise financial investment but also an investment in the safety of yourself, your family members or your employees. In some areas, it may even be a code requirement.


If you live along the U.S. Gulf Coast or Atlantic seaboard, consider Weather Shield LifeGuard® impact windows for your home or business. To learn more, contact us directly, or find a local Weather Shield dealer.


Impact Resistant Window Code

Our impact resistant windows meet the strictest window codes in the U.S. – found in Miami-Dade County. The Miami-Dade Building Code requires that every exterior opening be safeguarded against debris common in high wind situations. Our impact resistant windows provide continuous protection from wind born debris. Although there are several options out there for protecting the window openings in your home, our impact resistant windows offer superior protection. Since our impact resistant hurricane windows are built into the frame of your home or business, it is much more difficult for the wind to get behind them and pull them off the structure; a common problem with shutters or plywood.
