Tornado-rated windows fortify emergency response center in Florida

More than 160 tornado-rated windows from Winco Window Co. were installed in the Pinellas County Emergency Response and Control Center in Clearwater, Fla. The Building Team of Mason Blau Associates and Hennessey Construction designed the 80,385-sf building to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. The windows are modified Series 3350 fixed units made from heavy commercial aluminum using glass reinforced with a laminated interlayer and polycarbonate sheets that reduce noise, wind, and water infiltration and, most importantly, withstand winds reaching 195 mph—a necessary bulwark as hurricane season approaches.
