Inc. and NuAir Windows and Doors Join Forces to Meet Increasing
Demand for Hurricane Protection
NuAir Windows and Doors, Florida-based window and door manufacturer,
has teamed up with Saflex, a business unit of Solutia Inc. to offer
code-approved hurricane protection products made with KeepSafe Maximum®
According to the companies, windows and doors constructed with Solutia's
KeepSafe Maximum glass provide an effective means of helping to
protect homes during a hurricane. These products are certified,
code-approved, and have passed Florida's toughest building code
requirements, including AAMA standards and Miami-Dade protocols,
the companies say.
"Left unprotected, standard windows and doors are vulnerable
to being shattered by flying debris from tropical storm or hurricane
force winds," notes Scott Henderson, president of NuAir. "We've
seen this happen with countless hurricanes in Florida. However,
NuAir's window and door systems are made with KeepSafe Maximum's
interlayer and are specifically designed to meet all code-required
hurricane impact standards."
According to the press release, homeowners benefit from the invisible,
24-7 protection that eliminates the need to install a more conventional
means of protection, such as plywood or storm panels, in the hours
before a hurricane.
"With NuAir products manufactured with KeepSafe Maximum Glass,
all homeowners need to do is lock their windows and doors and leave,"
adds Henderson. "The impact resistant glass will protect a
home without complicated preparations, so homeowners can concentrate
on their own safety. The units also offer other security, sound
reduction and solar protection benefits, including keeping intruders
out, protecting furniture and carpets from fading in tropical climates,
and the luxury of reducing outside noise by up to 50 percent."
