Building Codes - Information & Updates
The Florida Building Code Fifth Edition (2014) goes into effect at midnight on June 30, 2015. Homes in the wind-borne debris region, depicted on the map below, require approved hurricane shutters or impact-resistant windows and doors. PGT® WinGuard® and PremierVue™ products are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the wind-borne debris region.
Because code standards and requirements may vary from state-to-state and among local jurisdictions, please check with your local building authority for the most recent code requirements.
