PGT WinGuard Aluminum
For the past thirty years, PGT has been at the forefront of aluminum Impact Hurricane Resistant windows and doors. So much so that PGT’s engineers were an integral part of the creation of modern Florida Building Codes after our State suffered the damages of Hurricane Andrew. PGT’s Aluminum WinGuard windows and doors have dominated the Florida new construction and renovation markets by always addressing the needs of the Florida consumer. PGT provides an excellent quality product at a fair price, and they back it up with the most knowledgeable and experienced service teams in Florida.
Ten years ago, WinDoor burst into the Florida Building Market offering some of the strongest, most well-designed sliding glass doors. Unique and insightful engineering and product design allowed WinDoor to offer their clients incredibly strong, and incredibly resilient doors that can withstand the harshest conditions that Florida’s climate can create. Originally focusing on high-end and commercial high-rise projects, WinDoor has since taken their reputation for strength, durability and beauty, and applied it to an ever-increasing line of products. Recent introductions include their new tilt-and-turn vinyl casement and traditional crank-out casement windows; thermally-broken aluminum double-hung windows; and their new 9050 Series Terrace Door boasting unit sizes of up to 7′ x 10′. If you’re seeking the finest in aluminum doors and windows, WinDoor is sure to meet your needs.
Smith Mountain Impact Systems
Specializing in Commercial Storefront and High-Rise applications, SMI has provided South Florida with some of the strongest windows and doors available since 1998. While most storefront systems are assembled and glazed in the field, SMI instead offers factory-glazed and factory-assembled product, ensuring that all Miami-Dade specifications are met in their controlled manufacturing environment, leading to superior field success rates. Adding to this is SMI’s wet seal system of glazing. Most manufacturers use a dry glazing system, relying on a “weep”, or drainage, system to mitigate water infiltration. This method has proven over time to have drastically higher failure rates, so SMI instead relies on a factory-applied, wet-seal glazing system, which never gives water the opportunity to enter the window or door. SMI also specializes in Blast-Mitigation (Bomb-Resistant) glass systems for delicate or vital civic structures such as police stations and government structures. These systems have met and exceeded the Department of Defense Level 1 Requirements in actual blast test conditions.
