PGT® Adds Double Hung and French Door to Vinyl Winguard® Series

VENICE, Fla., June 20, 2006 -- PGT Industries has added a double hung window, French door and fixed casement window to its line of WinGuard® Impact-Resistant Windows and Doors with vinyl frames. This makes WinGuard with vinyl frames one of the most complete lines of impact-resistant windows and doors that meet code and energy requirements for eastern coastal states.

PGT is the nation’s leading manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors.

“As the pioneers of impact-resistant windows and doors, all of our WinGuard products were originally and still are designed specifically for impact protection,” said Cara Klein, PGT director of advertising and public relations. “We did not take standard windows and doors and simply modify them for impact protection.

” Standard features for the WinGuard Vinyl Series DH 560 include 7/8" laminated insulating glass, removable full screen, double weatherstripped interlocking tilt sashes and deluxe swivel locking hardware.

Design details for the Vinyl WinGuard Series FD 550 include 1" laminated insulating glass, fully weatherstripped frame and integral nail fin frame with 1" setback. Choose either single or double door configurations. Both are shipped fully assembled and include a corrosion resistant multi-point mortise lock system complete with hardware.

A complimentary addition to the WinGuard Casement Series CA 550 is the fixed configuration. It features 7/8" laminated insulating glass, with the same beveled exterior design as its operating companion. The entire line is custom-made and comes in a wide variety of sizes and options which include white or beige finish, high performance low-E glass and tints, 13/16" colonial insulating muntins and simulated divided lites.
