Guardian 275® Translucent Curtainwall Receives Florida Approval for Hurricane Protection

Wausau, WI, June 14, 2008 --( Major Industries recently announced that their Guardian 275® translucent curtainwall has been approved by the Florida Building Commission for use in the Florida construction industry. The Guardian 275® hurricane system, engineered to provide the highest level of hurricane protection, offers the same high-quality, glare-free light found in Major’s standard Guardian 275® translucent panel systems.

In order to receive Florida approval (which encompasses most Florida counties), Major’s Guardian 275® translucent curtainwall had to withstand a variety of missile impact, water and air infiltration and pressure load tests. Guardian 275® translucent curtainwall, with its unique sandwich panel design and use of high-performance materials, offers strong protection against hurricane-force winds and flying debris – without sacrificing the numerous health and environmental benefits that daylighting provides.
