Barcelona Hurricane Windows
Barcelona impact windows have been specially engineered to protect your home and loved ones from violent weather year round. Barcelona windows are offered with two different levels of protection.
Barcelona “Impact Level D” windows can be installed practically anywhere, even right on the coastline. They passed ASTM Large Missile Impact Level D tests, and have also achieved “HVHZ” certification, which means they are tested and approved for high-velocity hurricane zones. They carry a DP 50 rating or better in accordance with the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s 101 standard for air, water and structural wind load testing.
Our “Impact Level C” windows are ideal for non-coastal areas that are prone to violent weather and require windows that keep out wind and water. In addition to easily passing ASTM Large Missile Impact Level C Tests, these windows also carry a minimum DP 50 rating.
