Fenex Floodproof Windows are passive flood barriers that are always ready to protect from flood water and debris, while still maintaining your view and aesthetic. There is no need for storage or deployment before a flood event, as these beautiful glass systems are mainstays for your area or building.

These Fenex systems have been rigorously tested and use a patented frame, available in multiple configurations, that is designed to withstand impact and heavy loads from rising water. Our flood windows are tested up to 10’ of water.

ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR FLOOD BARRIERS
FEMA RECOGNIZES FLOODPROOF GLAZING SYSTEMS

PRODUCT ICONS_Flood Barrier Window (2).p

Fixed window systems take the place of heavy, deployable flood panel systems that are required when developing in a FEMA flood hazard area. Save space and peace of mind with flood resistant glazing to meet floodproofing requirements.

FLOODPROOF WINDOWS VS.
TRADITIONAL WINDOWS WITH FLOOD SHIELDS

ASCE 24-14 allows glass curtain walls to be protected with flood barriers if they attach to substantially impermeable elements of the building. According to FEMA, though, glass curtain walls are considered “walls,” so putting a barrier system over a traditional glass window system that is not substantially impermeable would NOT be compliant and does not meet the Codes of Federal Regulations (44 CFR 60.3).

NFIP participating communities must meet the minimum FEMA requirements which would include using Floodproof Window systems that make a wall substantially impermeable.
