High-quality, Reliable Protection
Aluminium hurricane window systems
A hurricane window from Neuffer is manufactured with special impact-resistant glass which can withstand flying debris and 5000 Pa of pressure from high winds.
While regular windows have glazing with air between panes, the Reynaers hurricane window from Neuffer can feature laminated glass with five invisible interlayers of strong PVB polymer film.
The glazing can then also be additionally tempered to increase its flexibility upon impact. The complex technical consistency of the glass used in hurricane-proof windows means that, in the event that glass does break, it is held in place. Excellent storm protection and injury prevention are therefore provided.
With climate change causing increasingly unpredictable storms and building regulations tightening responsively, high-quality hurricane windows and doors with heavy-duty impact glass and expertly manufactured frames are becoming all the more important. Tested to withstand hurricane-strength winds and Miami-Dade certified, hurricane windows available at Neuffer, such as the Reynaers CS 77 model, are highly water resistant, and feature laminated glass layered with thick polymer film to help keep buildings safe.
Hurricane Windows – The key features
Installing hurricane proof windows and doors in affected areas is important because building openings become particularly vulnerable points; water can threaten damage, as can flying debris which may cause glass to break. Windows which give way may then also lead to an imbalance of pressure between inside and out, increasing the risk of roofs lifting.
Hurricane impact-resistant windows differ from regular doors and windows in that they have been purpose-built and tested to withstand severe weather and meet local regulations. Reinforced and strong, they have the following special features:
Ultra sturdy, reinforced profiles
Windows only featuring impact resistant glass are not sturdy enough to withstand hurricane strength winds; special profiles, such as aluminium and uPVC frames, are needed to encase them and keep the structure intact. With their built-in drainage system, Reynaers profiles, used in hurricane glass windows from Neuffer, provide just this as thick high-quality aluminium gives great hurricane window protection.
High water resistance
With heavy rainfall, buildings may be at risk of water damage during tropical storms and hurricanes. Our hurricane impact window is therefore framed by a purpose-made profile from leading European window manufacturer, Reynaers. This aluminium frame has been tested to ensure excellent water tightness and features special ventilation holes to balance pressure and aid drainage.
