Winguard Storm Protection

WinGuard® from PGT Custom Windows + Doors

For storm protection in Bermuda and the Caribbean, we recommend WinGuard®. With a reputation for keeping families safe through the toughest weather conditions, both WinGuard® Aluminum and WinGuard® Vinyl lines offer innovative designs, UV protection, and impact-resistant strength that stands the test of life.

Hurricane Protection

WinGuard® products can withstand repeated impact from a nine-pound 2x4 beam traveling at 34 miles per hour, followed by hurricane-force winds. Even if the glass is damaged, it remains securely in its frame, keeping the elements outside.

Peace of Mind

The durable interlayer used in WinGuard® products keeps glass in place and provides an additional barrier that deters intruders by preventing breakage.

UV Protection

The clear interlayer used in WinGuard® Aluminum products filters out 99% of UV rays, helping your furniture, carpet, artwork, and drapes retain their original beauty.

Noise Reduction

WinGuard®windows and doors significantly reduce ambient noise by absorbing sound rather than transmitting it, keeping outside disruptions where they belong.
Glass Comparison

Glass breakage patterns vary greatly depending on treatment and construction. WinGuard® laminated products may crack if impacted, but keep glass pieces adhered to the laminate and secure in the frame. Conversely, single pane annealed glass will fracture into large shards and will not be held in the frame after breaking.

10-Year Warranty
WinGuard®products are backed by our solid warranty. Whether aluminum or vinyl, WinGuard® units come with a limited lifetime warranty on insulating glass units and a 10-year warranty on laminated glass units.
