What are some brands of storm windows that fit Pella Proline 450 series
windows? Ours are Proline's standard size, 33" x 65" I think.
I can't find on Pella's website where they offer any storm windows. I want
them as much for added security as much as for add'l weather protection.
Ideally, I'd like top find a storm window using Solutia's KeepSafe shatter
resistant security glass, that would fit but that seems a tall bill to fill.
Well, I think that the whole idea of having a modern, air-tight, multi-pane
window is that you don't need to add a storm window. I have never seen a storm
window that would add significantly to the U factor of a decent window.
Now, security is another issue.
Security is a fairly large part of my desire for the storm windows,
actually. Anything that a burglar sees that he interprets as a slow down
gaining entry may make him move on to the next house and leave yours alone.
I have three Larson Secure Elegance storm doors on the house that feature
the Solutia KeepSafe security glass. It is supposed to be able to withstand
a brick hit, a direct crowbar strike, etc and while it will crack and break
the laminate keeps it from coming apart and so it remains as a barrier to
entry. The doors are installed with one way screws every other screw, I
hope I never have to try to remove the door-- I would need to drill each one
way screw out...
