This Discovery Channel, ‘Discoveries of The Week Feature', was run in September 2005 after one of the worst months of any Florida Hurricane season in recorded history. Both Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Katrina hit just one year after Hurricane Charlie.
Art and Lynne Armstrong of Punta Gorda, Florida watch as a piece of plywood slams into their New Code Hurricane window with the force of Hurricane Charlie. Hurricane Charlie, a category 5 hurricane, was one of the most destructive hurricanes to ever slam into Southwest Florida with winds in excess of 150 miles per hour. Art stands mere inches away from their New Code windows as hurricane Charlie devastates the world outside. Plywood impacts the New Code Hurricane window flexing the impact resistant window considerably. The New Code hurricane window performs exactly as it was engineered, taking the impact and remaining in place with no water or air penetration. The net result of the New Code window resisting one of the worst hurricane storms to ever hit Punta Gorda is the Armstrong's roof remained intact likely saving their property and their home AND maybe even saving the Armstrong's lives.
See for yourself the stringent Florida hurricane impact standards that every New Codehurricane resistant window is built to exceed. See New Code hurricane windows resist extreme testing and the forces that push and pull at your windows in a severe hurricane situation. See New Code windows pass hurricane impact resistant testing that plywood and particle board hurricane reinforcements fail.
New Code hurricane Windows truly are a ‘Discovery' that could save your Florida home and more importantly your Florida family from the most destructive hurricane storms Southwestern Florida residents face nearly every hurricane season.
