EXPORTS TO THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS
Hurricane impact windows are becoming an important need for properties located in coastal areas, specially in the Caribbean. Astor Windows and Doors can help you choose glazing solutions affordable for your project. Our impact-resistant, heavy-duty windows offer you 24-hour protection from hurricanes.
All of our impact windows and doors are approved for the high-velocity hurricane zone in Florida. The large majority of our products has the stringent Miami-Dade County approval; the rest of the products (only a handful) carries the Florida State certified for the high-velocity hurricane zone. These certifications offer our international clients peace of mind since they can trust that our products have gone through and successfully passed rigorous testing.
We offer both aluminum frame and vinyl frame impact windows.
COASTAL HARDWARE UPGRADE AVAILABLE
For impact windows and doors that will be exposed to aggressive coastal weather conditions, our clients may request a coastal hardware package. Coastal hardware options are not standard items. Upgrades are available for some product lines. Coastal hardware upgrades, which carry a premium price, are not quoted by default. A coastal hardware package typically consists of stainless steel components. For example, stainless steel rollers for horizontal sliding windows, stainless steel operators for casement windows, stainless steel rollers sliding glass doors and stainless steel fasteners. If interested, ask Astor Windows's sales representative for pricing these premium options.
IMPACT WINDOWS FOR RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS
Our windows and doors are successfully installed in both residential and commercial properties. If you have multi-family projects, you can use our hurricane windows to offer hurricane protection and improved comfort. We feature a full line of impact-resistant glazing products, including sliding glass doors, French doors, casement windows, horizontal windows and single-hung windows. Like never before, these new products offer architects, engineers, builders, interior designers and homeowners more flexibility to design their window and door openings. New sliding glass doors, for example, can expand up to 24 feet in width or be used at corners.
