Protection Options

Protection OptionsBetween the destructive forces of nature and the destructive forces of man, there is a current focus on security and protection for office buildings, government buildings, schools and residences, Windows, quite obviously, are particularly vulnerable to these forces. Allied Window can provide a variety of glazing and product options to increase the level of protection for the window itself, the people and materials inside the building.

The mere presence of an exterior storm window provides added life to existing sash, the paint finish and historic glass.

Protection from windstorms or vandalism is typically provided by our Monumental Allied One Lite (MAOL), or plain D48 panels glazed with:

  • Tempered glass
  • Laminated glass
  • Polycarbonate (Lexan, Tuffak, or equal)

NOTE: Proper venting is required for storm windows that protect stained glass, in order to prevent heat damage to the stained glass.

Concern for the damaging effects of UV light can be addressed by a variety of solutions:

  • Laminated glass
  • UV resistant acrylic (UF-3 Plexiglas, OP-5 Acrylite or equal)
  • Polycarbonate (Lexan, Tuffak, or equal)
