More than 150 years ago the author Henry David Thoreau described Cape Cod as the “bared and bended arm of Massachusetts...boxing with northeast storms, and, ever and anon, heaving up her Atlantic adversary from the lap of earth.” 150 years later our battle continues against the elements of wind and rain. To help architects, builders, and homeowners meet and exceed the protection needed for our unique coastal environment Andersen® Windows and Doors offers Stormwatch® protection.
Andersen’s A-Series Windows and Doors with Stormwatch protection are Andersen’s most energy efficient coastal offering. All structural reinforcements are hidden behind the finished frame so the fit and finish of the window remains architecturally appealing. They provide protection from storms without shutters or storm panels by simply locking the window or door.
Andersen’s 400 Series Windows and Doors with Stormwatch protection are an excellent value for the money. Factory engineers add modern frame and sash reinforcement as well as impact resistant glass technology to the time tested windows and doors. The Perma Shield vinyl cladding has also been resisting salt spray and sea air for over 50 years.
Andersen’s E-Series, formerly known as Eagle Windows, with Stormwatch protection allows nearly unlimited design flexibility including 50 standard exterior colors, a wide variety of wood species and interior finishes with upgraded frames and impact resistant glass.
All of Andersen’s coastal windows are available with Low-E4 Impact Resistant Glass that provides wind-borne debris protection and an insulating air space that helps keep homes cool in summer and warm in winter. The clear plastic laminate used for impact resistance has the added advantages of reducing sound transmission in the home and increasing resistance to forced entry. If you want to see Andersen test the glass by firing a 9 lb. 2×4 at 35 mph watch the “Andersen Stormwatch Impact Test” video on YouTube.
