Don’t sacrifice the energy-saving benefits of daylighting for secure hurricane protection!
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.
In order to receive Florida approval, Major’s Guardian 275® Translucent Systems had to withstand a variety of missile impact, water and air infiltration and pressure load tests. Guardian 275®, with its unique design and use of high-performance materials, offers strong protection without sacrificing the numerous health and environmental benefits that daylighting provides.
Guardian 275® hurricane systems have also been approved by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) for use along the Texas Gulf Coast. Guardian 275® is the first translucent panel daylighting system to receive TDI approval (#RWA-01).
Guardian 275® Translucent Daylighting Panels feature a tough sandwich-panel construction consisting of an aluminum grid core between two high-performance face sheets. In any configuration, Guardian 275® systems are lightweight, provide enhanced thermal performance over standard glass systems and feature integral water management systems and high-performance gasketing to ensure weatherproof performance.
