Hurricane & Impact Windows Installed Galveston Texas
Performance Windows of Texas is a factory direct, wholesale supplier of hurricane and impact windows. We specialize in the requirements for installation in Galveston Texas and other coastal areas.
Living in the coastal areas of Texas has some wonderful advantages. But there is another side to the coin that many residents of Galveston and other coastal areas face regularly; the weather. Severe storms and hurricanes that impact and ravage the coastline and properties inland have caused local authorities to enact very stringent safety codes to protect the inhabitants of coastal areas. These strict regulations help to ensure the safety of people who are subjected to the many violent storms that are prevalent to coastal regions.
These ordinances and codes will vary from state to state and amongst various municipalities. It is important to check with your local code office to understand the requirements that are specific to your address. If you are building a new home or structure that requires window installations you can save yourself an exorbitant amount of money, time and energy by first checking the facts in your local municipality. Having a good builder or installation company that knows and understands the codes which are specific to you is important. At Performance Windows of Texas we make sure that every hurricane and impact window meets and/or exceeds the lawful requirements for your area.

Our Laminated Glass Technology
Our laminated glass consists of annealed, heat-strengthened or tempered glass with one or more transparent, highstrength interlayers, bonded together to create a stronger, sturdier glass unit. We offer multiple interlayer options to meet various codes and security requirements.
Whether you want your laminated glass to meet hurricane codes, provide home security, or reduce noise, Showcase offers a product to meet your needs, delivering a level of security and serenity that can’t be realized with ordinary glass.
ANNEALED GLASS- breaks easily, producing long, sharp splinters.
TEMPERED GLASS- shatters completely under higher levels of impact energy, and few pieces remain in the frame.
LAMINATED GLASS- may crack under pressure, but tends to remain integral, adhering to the plastic vinylinterlayer.
Our Low-E Glass Technology
Earthwise windows and doors by Showcase are manufactured using the most advanced Low-E coatings and warm edge technology available today. We offer 3 different Low-E products that bring energy savings and comfort to your home.
LoĒ2-366 Glass with Argon gas filling
Our LoĒ3-366 glass delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. It also provides the highest levels of yearround comfort and energy savings, making it the perfect choice, no matter where you live. The secret? An unprecedented triple layer of silver. This goes beyond ordinary low-E glass; LoĒ3-366 sets a new standard for insulated glass performance. With three layers of year-round thermal protection, the benefits are exceptional. The result: a clear coating that blocks even more solar gain than ever before, delivers great thermal performance and lets the natural light stream in. You’ll notice the difference below between clear glass, regular low-E glass and new LoĒ3-366.
LoĒ2-270 Glass with Argon gas filling
Our LoĒ2-270 glass is the perfect choice for all season comfort. It reduces solar heat gain by 50% or more when compared to ordinary glass. Although it is clear, LoĒ2-270 even outperforms the ordinary tinted glass typically used in sunny climates. LoĒ2-270 also lets the light shine in to warm your house during the cooler winter months.
LoĒ2-240 Glass with Argon gas filling
Our LoĒ2-240 glass provides a great combination of aesthetic appeal, energy savings and indoor comfort. This cool, spectrally-selective coating is applied to clear glass, so that the appearance and performance are the same, regardless of glass thickness. LoĒ2-240 is more than solar control glass. Its advanced coating formulation also generates the lowest possible U-factor, providing comfort and energy savings during cold winter weather.
Optional Obscure Glass
Obscure glass is commonly used in bathrooms to distort the view from outside the home. Choose from these options.
