Atrium has issued a recall of SafeHarbor windows due to the glass separating from the frame during hurricane conditions and posing an impact injury hazard.

This recall involves 580 units of SafeHarbor Series 65 and 265 vinyl impact windows that are custom manufactured and installed by contractors to meet building specifications and vary in size and shape. The windows are installed with a removable label with the SafeHarbor brand name on it.

The recalled products were sold at ABC Supply, Absolute Installation, Builder's First Source, Gulf Coast Lumber, Jupiter Industries, Lansing, Lowe's, and Lumberman's stores nationwide from March 2016 through September 2016 for between $350 and $750.

No injuries or incidents have been reported to the company, to date.

Consumers should avoid areas with the recalled windows during hurricane conditions and contact Atrium to schedule a free repair.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns can contact Atrium at (800) 377-6524.
