Pella® Hurricane Shield Series™ Vinyl Single-Hung Window


Pella Hurricane Shield Series single-hung windows are designed to help protect your home from hurricanes and extreme weather. A pressure prevention system allows the frame to sustain a much higher design pressure. Additionally, the sash recesses back into the frame allowing for design pressure from +/-50 to +67.5/-100. A block-and-tackle sash balance allows you to operate the window with ease. These window frames are available in solid- or dual-color finishes in White or Bronze. And no matter the style of your home, we offer grille patterns to complement your design.
