Impact Performance

Over the years, strict building codes have been implemented in coastal areas to

require the use of high-performing products within structures to withstand these harsh

conditions. Teutonic Series windows and doors can be produced in versions that meet

the stringent protection requirements in these unforgiving environmental conditions.

Blast Mitigation

Blast mitigation for windows involves the product being able to withstand the vast pressures of an explosives blast along

with keeping the glass in the opening, preventing debris and the glass itself from entering the building. Teutonic Series fixed

windows and tilt-turn windows have options for blast mitigation. Each of these units meets different performance criteria that

have been set by the GSA (General Services Administration). These windows meet the tested requirements for the Unified

Facilities Criteria Department of Defense Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for Buildings.

STC Ratings

Through the use of thick-walled frame and sash extrusions as well as the gasket system in the compression seal technology,

the Teutonic Series delivers ratings much better than the traditional aluminum products found in most commercial settings.

Installing laminated glass or triple pane glass units can further increase the sound-blocking performance of these windows and

doors. Numerous glass configurations can be utilized, providing a wide range of STC values.
