Eurocraft Industries is a family-run business. And nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of our families and our customers. That’s why we’ve designed our EcoStar products to be some safest windows and doors in the world. Our goal is for our products to be safe, functional, versatile and affordable – and they are, especially when you consider the level of personal protection they offer.
We build our windows and doors in Florida. So we’re used to seeing the effects of tropical storms and hurricanes. We’ve designed our products to withstand the high winds and impact forces these types of storms bring. The very materials that make our products so safe against burglaries also protect our customer’s homes against the ravages of Nature. Our windows and doors have been tested against the toughest hurricane standards in the nation and were approved by the Florida building code (FL#12092-R1).
For the causal thief, breaking into a home protected by an EcoStar window or door, might prove to be just as difficult as a home protected by an elaborate, video-monitored security system. We know that’s a bold statement, but it’s true. Studies indicate that most thieves will move on if they cannot gain entry into a dwelling within 30 to 90 seconds. Our products have been tested for entry and break in by National Certified Testing Laboratories in Miami Florida. They’ve found that even when using crowbars and power tools, in their tests ranging from one-minute to five minutes, entry could not be gained into our products. Once you understand how they’re built, it’s easy to understand how this is possible.
If there were a fire in your home, could you get out quickly? You could if you had EcoStar windows. Unfortunately, every year, people are trapped and die in their homes because they can’t get out their windows. Usually, they can’t get to a door and the window won’t open wide enough, or it’s too difficult to open. With our Tilt-N-Turn windows, it takes an effortless turn of the handle to allow the window to open wide like a casement window. If you can fit through the enclosure opening, you can get out – quickly. Egress codes for rooms where people sleep state that minimum width for a window opening is 20 inches. The minimum height is 24 inches with a maximum height about the floor at 44 inches. All Ecostar products installed in bedrooms meet these requirements. Additionally, in the event of fire, the materials we use in the construction of our windows will not emit toxic fumes. This adds an additional margin of safety for you and your family.
