Florida Hurricane Windows: Design Pressure Ratings

Thursday, April 26, 2012
AW13June marks the beginning of a new hurricane season. Are you prepared? Design Pressure ratings for windows makes sure your custom windows will stand up high force winds.

FAS Windows & Doors has three processes in place to ensure the replacement windows you choose will keep your family safe in event of a hurricane. In most areas in Florida, the minimum DP rating for hurricane windows is 35, but it can be higher in high velocity hurricane zones.
  • Sales representatives carry laptops and use manufacturer specifications to verify proper DP ratings.
  • FAS Windows & Doors has a purchasing department to process all orders and double check the DP ratings by municipality for code requirements before the product is ordered.
  • FAS Windows & Doors uses permits on all jobs.
Permits are the final check by the county verifying the correct windows will be installed. If a permit is not used, the home owner will run the risk of having to replace the product in accordance to building codes at a future date.

It's always a risk to do small fixings even if the windows require much more than that.

I asked FAS along with three other window manufacturers for a quote. FAS had a good quote and good reputation so I decided to go with them. I got their Simonton windows and customized the order. Their sales rep was very knowledgeable, went step-by-step, had a sample window that he brought in, and he was pretty detailed. They had somebody come out and do an in-depth measurement to make sure everything would be perfect. The installation was done by two guys and they did a good job. They were very clean, picked up after themselves and made sure that we were happy before they left. The overall quality of the windows is good and I like them.
