WinGuard windows and doors combine aluminum or vinyl frames with impact-resistant laminated glass. A special silicone glazing process helps keep the glass from breaking away from the frame. Laminated glass is constructed by bonding a tough polyvinylbutyral (PVB) interlayer between two pieces of glass under heat and pressure. Once sealed, the glass “sandwich” behaves as a single unit and is transparent, like ordinary glass. Although wind-borne debris may crack the glass on impact, the interlayer keeps the overall window in tact, preventing destructive winds and rain from entering the home.
