Faour Glass Technologies Receives a U.S. Patent for its Frameless Impact Glass Door
This is the second U.S. Patent for the SLIMPACT® line windows and doors.
Faour Glass Technologies is pleased to announce that it was awarded a patent (Patent Number: US 10,309,147 B1) on June 4, 2019, for its innovative hurricane door design that performs with no major framing members.
The SLIMPACT® Frameless Door System was introduced in 2017 and is designed and approved for large missile impact-resistance, meeting Florida’s High Velocity Hurricane Zone requirements. The SLIMPACT® product line includes an automated door and the SLIMPACT® Window, also patented. SLIMPACT® is the first of its kind to offer a frameless impact-resistant option for architects, designers and owners.
