INDIANA, Pa. – Oct. 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Gorell’s new Armor Max Plus(TM) hurricane window was awarded a Crystal Achievement Award in the “Most Innovative Window” category by Window & Door magazine. Armor Max Plus(TM) windows are designed to protect homeowners and their homes from airborne debris during hurricane-strength storms and other forms of violent weather. They have passed ASTM Large Missile Impact testing to 140 miles-per-hour (Level “D”) and also boast Texas Department of Insurance approval, which allows them to be installed anywhere needing hurricane protection, right up to the coastline. Armor Max Plus products are made in the U.S. and are available from Gorell window dealers throughout the Gulf region.

The judges had a tough job this year. We received more than 160 nominations-shattering our previous record.”

The Crystal Achievement awards recognize significant innovations and achievements in window and door technology, manufacturing and marketing. The winners are selected by a panel of judges representing all segments of the industry.

Every Armor Max Plus product incorporates three panes of glass, two of which sandwich a nearly impenetrable PVB interlayer. The glass is deeply embedded into the sash, significantly increasing the windows’ structural integrity. Rigid tubular master frames-with 13 separate insulating chambers and heavy-duty double-cam sweep locks-provide tremendous strength and durability. Armor Max Plus Windows also include Gorell’s SolarControl(TM) Plus Low-E coating and argon gas fill for exceptional thermal performance that yields energy cost savings.
