Applying his personal expertise in meteorology and engineering, Dan studied the effects of hurricanes and determined that the minimum code shutters just wouldn’t work in a bad blow. It was in 1982, that Mr. Van Dyk helped that company successfully produce and launch a hurricane shutter with much stronger material. Furthermore, he developed stronger anchoring system resulting in what was dubbed; “Super Panels”. When Hurricane Andrew tore through southern Dade County, they protected over 250 families. Not one window was lost, which proved that even the worst hurricane was a survivable and manageable event with the right protection.
Dan has since embraced the need for a replacement window that addressed all the true functions that a window is supposed to do. Stop heat transfer, block the sun’s damaging rays, eliminate drafts, keep out burglars, protect from hurricanes, beautify homes and be easy to clean. Most importantly, impact windows should last virtually forever in a tropical salt zone without any serious maintenance or deterioration.
In his quest to find the best materials and technology available in windows to solve all these challenges, Dan forged a strong relationship with some of the country’s best window manufacturers. These efforts, combined with his unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction became the beginnings and foundation of what is now one of the leading window replacement companies in Palm Beach. ”The Florida Window Experts”
