Terrell, Texas-based Vistawall has engineered its new StormMax
FG-5000 impact-resistant storefront system to provide protection
against wind-borne debris as mandated by South Florida's hurricane
code. The system has been tested to meet full compliance with
Miami/Dade County Protocol 201, 202 and 203 and Southern Building
Code Congress International.
The storefront system was developed so that it can be shop- or
field-glazed. According to a company news release, StormMax FG-5000
has a unique feature that allows for anchor inspection before
or after glazing, which ensures quicker installation with code
approval. The system was tested with Vistawall 84- by 98-inch
MS-375 impact-resistant entrance doors. Factory-painted Kynar
500/Hylar 5000 and factory-anodized finishes are available.
