Hurricane Protection Systems
November 4, 2019
Major Industries’ Guardian 275® Translucent Systems, now approved for use in most Florida counties, the Texas Gulf Coast and more than 95% of the hurricane zones in North America, can be configured to provide unmatched protection from the elements while allowing glare-free natural light to illuminate building interiors.
Guardian 275®, with its unique sandwich panel design, integral moisture management systems, and use of high-performance materials, offers strong protection without sacrificing the numerous health and environmental benefits that daylighting provides. Guardian 275® has also been rigorously tested in order to receive a Florida Approval Number, having to stand up to a variety of missile impact, water and air infiltration and pressure load tests. Guardian 275® hurricane systems were also the first translucent panel daylighting system to receive Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) approval (#RWA-01) for use along the Texas Gulf Coast.
