DT Windows and Doors manufactures Hurricane resistant doors and standard doors that meet or exceed Dade County Impact Protocols. Impact resistant doors and standard doors complement the architectural elegance of your home. Our hurricane windows are engineered to withstand hurricane wind force and flying debris.
Our lines of doors are manufactured with aluminum, which is 43 times stronger than wood and 30 times stronger than vinyl. The specially laminated glass has sound insulating properties to reduce noise by 90% and 100% UV protection to protect your artwork, drapes and furniture, as well as provide great energy savings for a cooler, more comfortable ambiance.
Impact Resistant Glass
The insulated impact resistant glass is composed of a piece of heavy polyvinyl butyral plastic inter-layer sandwiched between two pieces of double–strength glass.
The laminated glass is then combined with another piece of double-strength tempered or anneal glass to form an insulated glass unit. This unit is then sealed together to form a strong, impact resistant bond, which is then glazed into the sash to hold the glass to the frame.
The glazing process uses a structural back bedding system to ensure the entire unit passes impact tests.
Whether you live in a mountainous region or on the coast, We have the glass options to meet the energy efficiency standards in your climate. Find out more about the glass options we’ve created to meet structural, architectural and environmental challenges.
Most of our doors have glass with LoE coating, which reduces energy transfer through the insulating glass unit. LoE coated glass is designed to reflect indoor heat back into the room during winter and block 96% of the sun’s oppressive heat during the summer, cutting back on heating and cooling costs throughout the year. These glass units are filled with argon gas, which has a 30% lower thermal conductivity than air.
