Simonton, ranked #1 in quality in the 2009, 2007, 2002 and 1998 Brand Use Studies sponsored by Builder magazine, and winner of three Best In Class Awards administered by LBM Journal Research Institute, has introduced SafePoint™ Impact-Resistant Glass.
Secure, quiet and energy-efficient, the new SafePoint™ impact-resistant laminated glass package from Simonton Windows is now available nationwide as an option on Simonton ProFinish® Brickmould 600 windows and doors.
Simonton’s new impact-resistant glass packages are great for code-driven coastal area homes, reducing the need to be boarded up before severe weather, since SafePoint glass has passed ASTM E1886-05/1996-09 at the Missile “C” level and can withstand repeated blows by a heavy object.
The protection goes beyond severe weather. According to Ken Kubus, coastal market manager for Simonton Windows, “The unique laminated SafePoint glass package helps reduce unwanted sound in the home… which is especially needed if a house is located in a high traffic area, near an airport, railway or urban center.”
In addition to these advantages, the laminated glass package also provides excellent energy efficiency, serving as an effective barrier against heat transfer, and may offer some protection against forced entry.
Simonton ProFinish Brickmould 600 windows and doors feature a brickmould/J-channel design with an attractive multi-tiered profile that meets architectural specifications and aids installation. With standard ProSolar® Low E Glass with an Argon glass fill, Brickmould 600 products meet, or can be ordered to meet, ENERGY STAR® guidelines for all areas of the country. The SafePoint glass package is an optional upgrade for this product line.
These low-maintenance windows and patio doors come with optional Decorum® by Simonton laminated woodgrain interiors and a variety of aesthetically-pleasing exterior colors, distinctive hardware, simulated divided lites and exterior flat casing trim that simulates the look of traditional wood windows and doors.
Additional Features of the ProFinish Brickmould 600 Series include full screens standard with every window, a wide selection of styles, (Geometrics, Picture, Awning, Casement, 3-lite Slider, 2-lite Slider and Double Hung) and a lifetime Limited Warranty* that covers vinyl, hardware, screens, insulating glass units for homeowner peace-of-mind.
* The SafePoint laminated glass is covered by a limited warranty for 20 years against material defects. A copy of the limited warranty is available from any Simonton Windows products dealer, or go to www.simonton.com.
