Solutia 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® interlayers.

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."
