The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued an alert for certain MI Windows and Doors manufactured products.
According to CPSC, the glass in MI Windows and Doors’ 1615 and 1617 sliding glass doors (if sold as impact-resistant or with a DP50 upgrade) and Window World brand 4000 Series sliding glass doors (with DP50 upgrade), and Window World 8000 Series sliding glass doors, can separate from the frame during hurricane conditions, posing a serious injury hazard.
A CPSC notice says consumers should avoid areas with the recalled doors during hurricane conditions. Homeowners are advised to contact MI Windows and Doors to schedule a free repair. Before repair, doors should be covered with plywood or other suitable protection if a hurricane warning is issued. According to CPSC officials, MI Windows and Doors is contacting all known purchasers directly.
Affected units were sold through independent window distributors and installers, including Window World, in the U.S. Eastern and Southern Coastal regions from April 2018 through March 2023.
