PGT WinGaurd Impact Resistant Windows

PGT Industries, an east coast window and door manufacturer, is the creator of WinGuard impact-resistant windows, beautiful windows that protect your home and valuables from unforeseen events. The laminated glass and silicone glazing prevent the glass from breaking off its frame, and the interlayer glass keeps the window intact – even after the first layer is broken from flying objects. These windows are available in Energy Star qualified configurations and are NFRC-certified.

WinGuard Features:

  • Available in vinyl and aluminum
  • Impact-resistant laminated glass guards against hurricanes and flying debris
  • Provides daily security against intruders
  • UV sunlight protection against fabric fading on drapes and furniture
  • Increased noise reduction from outdoor sources (same glass used in airports)
  • Optional non-impact glass available
