Hurricane Season and The Importance of Impact Resistance Windows

Over the past several years Northeast FL has been in the path of several named storms. We have been fortunate to avoid significant disaster. Hurricanes can take their toll on a city. They can destroy homes, cause trees to fall, wide spread flooding, and worst of all death. Many of us that have ridden out many of these hurricanes understand the importance of having a plan and being prepared. Part of being prepared is prepping your home to be able to withstand natures furry. Impact resistance windows are an important step in protecting your home and family against strong winds, flying debris, and heavy rains. As we enter hurricane season yet again, it is important to re-evaluate your homes windows.

What Are Impact Resistance Windows?

Impact resistance windows, also called impact windows are windows that are engineered to keep the glass from breaking away from its frame during an impact. With traditional windows, if an object impacts the window with enough force, the glass will shatter in the same direction of the impacting object. Impact windows, however, are designed to prevent the window from shattering. This is accomplished by its construction. Impact windows consist of a heavy-duty frame with laminated impact-resistant glass. The glass is comprised of two panes of glass fused together with polyvinyl butyral. This construction keeps impacting objects from penetrating the glass and entering your home. An object may break/crack the glass; however, the interlayer of the window will remain in-tact preventing any intrusion.
