Protecting your Home from Severe Weather like Hurricane Sandy

Hurricanes like Sandy leave a path of destruction wherever they go. Because of this, it is better to be safe than sorry. And the best way to do this is to make sure your home is prepared, especially when it comes to your windows.

“It’s important to understand how severe weather can affect structural integrity,” said Elizabeth Souders, the director of product marketing for windows at JELD-WEN. “Specifying the right exterior products can help decrease the risk of major damage.”

JELD-WEN Windows & ImpactGard® Protection: Designed to stand up to Mother Nature

JELD-WEN windows with ImpactGard® protection are built to withstand everything Mother Nature can throw at them. These windows include laminated glass for extra impact resistance, as well as SentryGlas Plus (SGP) interlayer and polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer options.

The benefits of ImpactGard with SGP include:

  • ImpactGard helps minimize structural damage by resisting impacts from windborne debris.
  • The interlayer of ImpactGard protection with SGP is 100 times more rigid than the industry standard.
  • The interlayer delivers five times the tear strength compared to common interlayer materials.
  • If a JELD-WEN window with ImpactGard breaks, most fragments will adhere to the interlayer, keeping your home safe.
  • ImpactGard offers increased security for homes facing severe weather.
  • JELD-WEN windows meet the nation’s toughest building codes.
  • ImpactGard protection is available with an optional Low-E glass for greater energy efficiency.
  • JELD-WEN windows feature a 10-year warranty.
  • And more!
