Andersen Windows & Doors has introduced a new PG Upgrade option for A-Series windows that sits between its current Standard and Impact with Stormwatch protection offerings. The new performance tier is now available to quote and order as a standard upgrade.

With the upgrade, A-Series windows achieve PG70 ratings for more performance, added strength, and a higher PG/DP value than Andersen’s standard A-Series. 

The PG Upgrade for A-Series windows is ideal for customers that live in areas like the Northeast that don’t require impact-resistant windows for code, but still want high performance for peace of mind.

Benefits include PG70 ratings with this new performance upgrade option, and hidden structural reinforcements that allow units to have the same aesthetic as standard A-Series windows.

The new PG Upgrade option for A-Series windows also satisfies the following:

  • AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S. 2/A440 “North American”
  • Standard/Specification for windows, doors and skylights” (NAFS)
  • Florida Building Code Product Approvals:
