1 Impact-Resistant Windows and Sliding Glass Doors

2 Make Your Home A SafeHarbor. SafeHarbor Impact-Resistant Windows and Sliding Glass Doors are designed to look like traditional windows and doors, but they are constructed of impact-resistant safety glass embedded in heavy duty aluminum frames. SafeHarbor Impact-Resistant Windows and Sliding Glass Doors are designed specifically to resist impact from wind blown debris and high velocity winds. SafeHarbor Windows were created to resist hurricane force winds and meet code specifications required in most states, and SafeHarbor Windows have achieved a Design Pressure Rating up to +70 /-70. If the impact is too great and the glass does break, SafeHarbor Windows provide an added measure of safety to help protect your home. The impact-resistant glass may shatter, but the safety membrane holds the pieces firmly in place, reducing the highvelocity winds that breach your home s outer envelope. SafeHarbor Windows and Sliding Glass Doors meet Miami-Dade County Building Code. Notice of Acceptance (NOA) No , Expiration Date: March 14, Miami Dade Protocols: PA201, 202 and 203.

3 Impact-Resistant Windows and Sliding Glass Doors SafeHarbor Impact-Resistant Windows and Sliding Glass Doors are engineered to protect your home against dangerous weather, including hurricane force winds. They deliver the beauty, practicality and convenience of traditional windows, while protecting against dangerous flying debris. Reducing the possibilty of penetrating the window results in reducing the possibilty of structural and water damage or total destruction. The laminated glass construction of SafeHarbor Windows creates a sound barrier that reduces outside noise pollution, and increases the quiet comfort of your indoor world. An added benefit of SafeHarbor Windows with Low-E Glass is their ability to block the majority of ultraviolet rays that pass through ordinary windows. This UV block helps protect room furnishings from fading and discoloration. Because of the extreme force and time it takes to penetrate these windows, SafeHarbor Windows are a deterrent to theft, burglary and unwelcome intrusion.

4 Performance Tested Durability In independent testing, SafeHarbor Windows were impacted with a 9 foot long 2 x 4 weighing 9 pounds that was fired at the window by an air cannon at speeds of 50 feet per second. After impact, the SafeHarbor Window was buffeted by combined positive and negative pressure simulating hurricane force winds. During the 5-hour testing period the impact-resistant glass remained in the window frame and was not breached. The SafeHarbor Window continued to function operationally after the testing was completed. SafeHarbor Impact-Resistant Windows are available in a full range of architectural shapes and sizes, in single-hung construction and in rolling windows. Insulated glass models are available with numerous glass color options and interior muntins. Impact-Resistant Glass Construction SafeHarbor Windows feature a 5/16 thick laminated safety glass to resist impact. The lite is constructed of two, 1/8 thick annealed glass panels laminated with an interlayer membrane. The interlayer membrane becomes transparent during the laminating process and forms a 5/16 thick panel. This unique laminated glass system creates an impact-resistant barrier and delivers outstanding thermal efficiency.

8 Upgrade Your SafeHarbor Impact-Resistant Windows And Sliding Glass Doors With Energy Efficient Low-E Glass The Warm-Edge Advantage Standard Specially insulated spacers between the glass panes are designed to flex with the glass in hot or cold temperatures to resist sealant failure. The insulated spacers also keep the edges of the glass warmer, dramatically reducing condensation while keeping cold air out and warm air in. Optional Energy Saving Low-E Glass Technology In the winter, Low-E Glass lets warm solar rays in and helps keep the heat inside your home. Low-E Glass In the summer, Low-E Glass reflects the sun s heat energy away from your home for cooler inside temperatures. Compared to regular glass, Low-E Glass insulates better, allows less condensation to form and provides greater energy savings all year. Low-E Glass is coated with a virtually invisible layer of silver that reflects radiant solar energy while permitting visible light to pass through the glass. In cold, winter climates the Low-E Glass keeps rooms warmer by reflecting heat back into the home while letting warm, solar rays in. In hot, summer temperatures, the Low-E Glass lets visible light pass while reducing the infrared and ultraviolet radiant solar energy that enters. So your rooms stay cooler and you save on precious energy costs. As an added bonus, because Low-E Glass blocks radiant solar energy, room furnishings will be better protected against fading or discoloration. Atrium is proud to promote energy efficient products in conjunction with the Energy Star for Windows program. 2006, Atrium Windows and Doors 3600 Port Jacksonville Parkway Jacksonville, FL
