Choosing a Storm-Proof Window

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018 by Michael Gabrian

Whether you live in a hurricane-prone area or are making sure you’re ready for any future storms. Choosing the best window that will protect you and your home can be difficult. Intense storms can come out of nowhere and cause tons of damage to homes and communities, the Jersey Shore being one place where stormproof windows might almost be essential.

Let’s talk a little about how Marvin Integrity will provide superior protection from storms and hurricanes.

Marvin Integrity Stormproof Features

There are a couple of key features that make Marvin Integrity windows storm-proof. First, we should look at the Ultrex pultruded fiberglass exterior. Aside from withstanding years and years of fading and chalking, this fiberglass frame is tested to withstand the harshest of climates. In fact, Ultrex is 8x stronger than vinyl. In a hurricane, you’ll want that strength on your side.

Integrity comes with the tempered glass options which help boost strength and safety. Tempered glass is about 4x stronger than ordinary glass, adding to the security and protection of your home. Plus, if debris hit the window and was strong enough the break it, instead of shattered it into sharp shards, it would shatter into harmless tiny pebbles, which helps to prevent an injury from that glass. In a hurricane, this means one less source of danger you need to worry about.

Marvin Integrity is built for durability and strength. If you’re looking for a window that can withstand storms and hurricanes, the Integrity line is a great choice.
