An Alternative to Impact Glass

July 13th, 2021 by Drew Vass, Executive Editor

Rehau’s new System 190 hung slider with integrated Raushield storm protection system is designed to be an economical way to meet hurricane impact codes in residential and light commercial buildings. Designed for new construction and replacement markets, the new 3-1/4-inch frame includes integral anchor points that allow for quick, easy installation of a storm protection fabric that meets Zone 3 windload requirements. For homeowners, preparation is as simple as snapping off a removable cover strip and attaching the reusable fabric panel. The Raushield frame can be installed in any wall construction without disrupting building façades, while eliminating the need to offset shutters for anchor clearance.

According to company information, Raushield storm protection system reduces the cost of supplying impact-compliant windows by at least 35% compared to using impact glass.
