Throughout June’s National Safety Month, sponsored by the National Safety Council, experts at Simonton Windows are offering ideas on how homeowners can stay safe in their homes.
Gary Pember, vice president of marketing for Simonton Windows recommends consumers consider the selection of windows with SafePoint™ glass for their homes. This impact-resistant glass package is engineered to deter intruders, resist high winds and flying debris during severe storms and reduce unwanted outside noise from coming into your home.
“The unique laminated SafePoint glass package offers proven peace-of-mind protection against forced entry which can help keep your home safe from intruders,” says Pember. “Even though the glass may fracture when struck with a crowbar, brick or hammer, the glass adheres to the strong interlayer and does not break out of the frame.”
Similar in design to impact-resistant glass packages found in code-driven coastal area homes, SafePoint glass offers no-effort protection for the home, 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
“The investment in this glass package pays off in so many ways,” says Pember. “In addition to helping protect the home, this laminated glass package provides excellent energy efficiency and serves as an effective barrier against heat transfer.
“This glass can actually play a significant role in helping lower heating and cooling costs for the home throughout the year while keeping the interior comfortable. And, SafePoint glass screens out much of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays that can damage carpets, furnishings and artwork.”
