Hurricane Impact Windows

DuPont™ SentryGlas® helped rewrite building codes in storm zones, by raising protection in glass to a new level. Hurricane impact windows and stiffer, stronger glass envelopes are being used to make buildings safer against threats of hurricanes, cyclones or other severe wind and weather. The stiffer interlayer also contributes to low-deflection glass, ideal for cost-effective "dry glazing" in hurricane zones.
The following area features examples of SentryGlas® use in hurricane impact windows and doors.
