Can I really defeat burglars...and hurricanes?
Hurd FeelSafe windows and patio doors are in fact hurricane-resistant and intruder-proof.
If you’re building or remodeling in a hurricane area, you need to feel safe. FeelSafe windows and patio doors are engineered inside and out to meet some of the highest wind, water and structural performance ratings of any window or door in the United States.
While traditional glass will shatter into thousands of pieces on impact, FeelSafe four-layer laminated glass remains intact. It dramatically reduces the risk of injury to you and your family, while protecting everything inside your home from severe wind and water damage. (It’s also available in three-layer non-insulated.)
Yet there’s another danger that’s even worse. In a hurricane, the atmospheric pressure outside your home varies significantly from the pressure inside. If one window bursts, the outside pressure rushes in—potentially blowing the roof off your home or taking down the whole structure. However, since FeelSafe laminated glass remains intact, it keeps the storm outside and preserves your building envelope.
