Series KM 600 Sliding Glass Doors are built tough to resist the unique and harshest weather conditions of South Florida. Constructed of heavy duty extruded aluminum, continuous weather stripping, tandem roller system, and 9/16” Dupont Sentry glass to exceed the most stringent code requirements of Miami-Dade County. It has been designed to maximize view, while never compromising strength, beauty, and performance.
SIW’s impact sliding glass doors have the same great benefits as our hurricane glass garage doors, pivot glass doors and the rest of our impact glass windows and doors.
In the event of a hurricane, it’s best to be prepared prior to the disaster, and one of the best ways you can do this is by switching your original sliding glass doors out with impact sliding doors from SIW. The advantages of impact glass are endless!
SIW impact sliding glass doors are hurricane resistant and can withstand winds between 210 to 390 miles per hour. During a hurricane, there can be all types of debris, but these objects won’t be able to penetrate through the impact glass on the SIW sliding doors.
Another benefit of SIW impact sliding glass doors is that they not only protect from hurricanes and tropical storms, but they also can reduce your electric bill! This is possible because a traditional window or sliding glass door will let heat from the sun seep through to the inside of your home. As a result, the air conditioning system will need to fight the incoming heat.
Impact windows have a strong aluminum frame and double glazing panes. With these qualities, the heat is not able to come through the glass because of the level of thickness and reflective properties. When heat cannot seep through the glass, then the air conditioning system doesn’t have to work so hard to maintain the low temperature, ultimately saving you power!
The sliding glass doors come with a variety of color options. There is a white and bronze powder coat option for the outer layers. In addition to this, there is also custom wood grain and kynar finishes. At SIW, we know that safety and resistance are important, but it shouldn’t have to come at the cost of appearance. That’s why we want to make sure you love the look of your sliding glass doors!
All of our windows and doors at SIW, including our sliding glass doors, are Miami-Dade County approved and State of Florida approved. Having an effective, safe window is more than just taking our word for it. There are requirements and regulations for these types of approvals, which are ultimately to benefit you. We are proud to say that we pass these and that our windows have the approval of some of the toughest certifications to receive.
Just like our hurricane resistant, high impact windows, our impact sliding glass doors are able to withstand break ins from intruders. The sliding glass door is composed of shatter-resistant glass with two double glazing bonded layers. With these parts, there is also a plastic film composed of Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) to prevent the shattering after attempted trauma. Because of the design and structure of this being highly resistant, break ins are extremely difficult, if possible at all.
All in all, SIW is dedicated to providing the safest, most beneficial impact windows and sliding glass doors. We understand your need of wanting to be prepared in the event of a hurricane, which is why we provide an effective, strong variety of impact resistant products for your home.
