Impact Windows & Doors

High winds, hurricanes, tropical storms — at PGT®, we’ve built our reputation on keeping families safe from some of the toughest conditions on earth. As the best-selling brand of hurricane impact windows and doors in America*, our WinGuard® Aluminum and WinGuard® Vinyl lines offer impact resistant strength and beauty along with a wide range of additional benefits to help ensure your family and home are better protected and more comfortable.

The benefits of impact resistant windows and doors

Beyond offering powerful protection from extreme weather and wind-borne debris, impact resistant windows and doors in vinyl and aluminum also provide an extra layer of security, noise reduction, UV protection, and lasting beauty. 

The same high-quality laminated glass, composed of two pieces bonded with a clear interlayer, that gives impact windows their strength also helps keep your windows and doors secure if they’re struck. While the glass can crack and break, all pieces stay affixed to the frame, so there are no openings to leave your home and family vulnerable to a would-be intruder.
