Hurricane Resistant Glass Skylights

Now Wasco® E-Class® self-flashing skylights are available with high performance hurricane-resistant laminated glass, providing superior safety and security that meets Dade County, IBC/IRC and other stringent state building codes for skylights installed in Wind Zone 3 coastal applications.

Though it looks like ordinary glass, hurricane-resistant glass shields against damage from wind-borne debris, accidental impacts, forced entry, even unwanted noise. It’s made of heat strengthened low-E lites permanently bonded with one or more layers of PET film and durable PVB (polyvinyl butyral) resin sheeting. In exhaustive impact tests, broken glass fragments have adhered to the bonded plastic vinyl interlayer, reducing the risk of injury, shattered glass and breaching the building envelope.

Wasco E-Class Hurricane Resistant Windows
With its layers of PET film and PVB laminated between heat strengthened low-E lites, the hurricane-resistant glass in Wasco SkyWindow skylights won’t shatter or break apart.

Hurricane Resistant Protection
