WinGuard®: Hurricane Windows + Doors.

We’ve built our reputation on keeping families safe through the toughest conditions on earth: high winds. Hurricanes. Tropical storms. As the best-selling brand of impact-resistant windows and doors in America, our WinGuard® products exemplify our clear purpose of safety, beauty, and strength. Both our WinGuard® Aluminum and WinGuard® Vinyl lines offer innovative designs, UV protection, and impact-resistant strength that stands the test of life. And with more than four million WinGuard® products installed around the world, we’ve received zero reported impact failures.


  • Hurricane Protection

    WinGuard® products can withstand repeated impact from a nine-pound 2’ by 4’ beam traveling at 34 miles per hour, followed by hurricane-force winds. Even if the glass is damaged, it remains securely in its frame, keeping the elements outside.

  • UV Protection

    The clear interlayer used in WinGuard® Aluminum products filters out 99% of UV rays, helping your furniture, carpet, artwork, and drapes retain their original beauty.

  • Noise Reduction

    WinGuard® windows and doors significantly reduce ambient noise by absorbing sound rather than transmitting it, keeping outside disruptions where they belong.

  • Peace of Mind

    The durable interlayer used in WinGuard® products keeps glass in place and provides an additional barrier that deters intruders by preventing breakage.

  • Glass Type Comparison

    Glass breakage patterns vary greatly depending on treatment and construction. WinGuard® laminated products may crack if impacted, but keep glass pieces adhered to the laminate and secure in the frame. Conversely, single pane annealed glass will fracture into large shards and will not be held in the frame after breaking.

  • 10-Year Warranty

    WinGuard® products are backed by our solid warranty. Whether aluminum or vinyl, WinGuard® units come with a limited lifetime warranty on insulating glass units and a 10-year warranty on laminated glass units.
