How we convert your settlement into a Sanctuary
Low to No Security Glass
Old non-Impact glass is sometimes as thin as 1/8 inch overall, incredibly easy to break.
Mr. Glass windows come stock with 5/16″ thick glass and are easily upgraded to 7/16″ thick. The french door glass is 7/16″ thick and the sliding door glass is an incredible 9/16″ thick. This laminated glass is comprised of two equally thick pieces of heat strengthened glass with a PVB layer in between. Needless to say, nothings getting through any of it.
Sliding door insecurity
Having personally dismantled and installed hundreds of sliding glass doors, new and old, I am of the opinion that they are the single weakest link in your homes theft barrier, information not lost on professional burglars, most fixed panels and locking catches being fastened with incredibly inadequate self tapping metal screws, or sometimes even screwless alligator clips.
High Security Sliders
Mr Glass has solved the age old problem of insecure sliding doors by placing the active panel, fully interlocked and latched in a concrete screw secured catch as the outside panel, while placing solid aluminum bracing at the header and base of the fixed panel inaccessible from outside. Which is to say, you can’t break in to these doors!!”
Thin glass and frames, and imperfect seals allow for very little in noise reduction. If you live near an airport or busy highway, or any urban environment, the intrusive clamor can really challenge your serenity.
Noise Pollution Reduction
One of the least acknowledged benefits of Impact windows and doors is the noise cancelling effect. Mr. Glass also offers insulated glass options to take the already high sound barrier to the next level.
Most Deadbolts and handsets are old hat for a professional theif. Even without any special skills a well placed crowbar will make short work of a traditional handset and deadbolt.
All Mr Glass french doors come standard with throw bolts in three directions, 1 up, 1 down and 1 sideways. This offers a serious impediment to any unwanted entrance. There is also the upgrade option of a keyed, 3-point lock operating handsets, as pictured, that operate both vertical throw bolts and horizontal deadbolt with one motion. This is a super secure and ergonomic feature. The added bonus of the handset, beyond ease of use, is that it can be operated from outside the home as well, leaving all bolts secured even when your not home.
Your existing thin glass, deficient tint, and imperfect seals are causing major heat exchange. The cold air is going out and the hot air and glare is coming in causing high electrical bills and the constant over exertion of your air conditioning system.
Maximum Energy Conservation
Impact Windows and Doors offer appreciable reductions in cooling costs. Mr. Glass windows provides an extensive heat barrier improvement due to tight seals, thick frames, and thick glass even without upgrades. Upgrades like thicker glass, Low-E tint and Insulated glass can be added and combined to reach amazing levels of energy conservation.
Storm Shutter Servitude
Closing accordions is no fun, worse yet hanging and removing metal storm panels. How about hunting down plywood and screwing directly to your home. Its no wonder some are tempted to leave their homes shuttered for the duration of the season, not fun, however novel it might be to live in the dark for a bit.
Storm Window Freedom
Watch the swirling seas and wind blown trees from the comfort of your own living room, no more time consuming hurricane home preparation. Mr. Glass windows come stock with PSF pressures of +80/-80. Thats higher than PGT and most other windows on the market. It translates to strong category 5 protection, to be specific that rating guarantees the glass can with stand negative, and positive pressures, of up to 120 pounds per square foot.
Leaky windows causing bad smells, rotted wood, bug infestations and worst of all mold.
