We offer some of the strongest windows on the market

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2015 / -- Although the 2015 hurricane season is expected to be a moderate one, according to most weather experts, it is always a good idea to make sure that your property is prepared for any severe weather that mother nature may throw our way,” says Rolandas Talalas, Principal/Managing Director of Intus Windows (, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of energy-efficient, hurricane rated window products. “After all, it is always better to be safe than sorry.”

Talalas notes that all it really takes is one big storm to cause significant property damage, particularly in high-risk regions of the country, such as Miami Dade County, in Florida, and eastern Long Island, in New York.

“We are always hopeful for a quiet hurricane season," Talalas says, “but it never hurts to be prepared.”

The reality is, he notes, that windows are one of the most vulnerable areas of a building envelope and the first to give in to strong winds. He suggests using this expected moderate season to make any necessary changes and upgrades to structures.

“That way, when a storm does hit,” Talalas explains, “you and your property remain as safe as possible."

According to Talalas, it is important that property owners learn from the past. For example, Hurricane Andrew was one of the most destructive hurricanes in U.S. history. The August 1992 storm brought sustained winds of 165 mph, with gusts reaching 177 mph. More than 25,000 homes were destroyed and upwards of 100,000 properties were damaged, primarily as a result of wind damage. The storm decimated south Florida and resulted in the launch of stronger building codes across the region, and the country.

“Following Hurricane Andrew, the Miami-Dade County building codes were developed and put into place,” Talalas explains. “Recognized as the most stringent building codes in the country, these parameters quickly became the benchmark for impact-resistant products. Soon, other states followed Florida’s lead, including New York.”

Thankfully, there are a number of window manufacturers out there, Talalas says, including Intus Windows, who manufacture hurricane windows and doors with laminated glass that meets both Miami-Dade County and Long Island impact standards.

"We offer some of the strongest windows on the market," says Talalas. "Our hurricane-resistant windows are large missile impacted and then cycled to a high level of design pressure.”

According to Talalas, strong wind speeds equal high pressure, so the higher the design pressure of a window, the better protection it is has against high-velocity damage scenarios.

“A strong, solid window, both in look and performance, is a property owner’s best defense against the worst that Mother Nature sends our way,” Talalas concludes.
