What are some of the Benefits of Impact Resistant Windows?
- Invisible Protection from Hurricanes
Windows and impact resistant doors are always ready for bad weather and maintain the beauty of your home. Hurricane shutters are not required and impact resistant glass can greatly increase the security and energy efficiency in your home. Accordion hurricane shutters and other aluminum shutters can have a visible impact on a home’s appearance when installed on exterior walls. Impact resistant windows, frequently called hurricane proof windows, can actually improve or update the look of a home.
- Secure and Code approved
Dade County and Florida code approved hurricane windows are designed and tested to withstand the extreme wind pressures and impacts from hurricanes and tropical storms. Hurricane windows, and accordion shutters are the most common choices for hurricane window protection in Broward County and South Florida.
- Energy Efficiency
The tight fit and finish of laminated glass hurricane windows and impact resistant doors seal your home from the elements and can greatly improve energy efficiency. While hurricane shutters, accordion shutters, and hurricane panels protect you from storms, hurricane resistant windows provide energy savings that other hurricane window protection does not offer.
- 24/7 Security from Intruders
Impact resistant windows provide an additional level of home security from burglars that isn’t available from aluminum shutters. A strong inner liner is sandwiched between two layers of glass. In the event the glass breaks, the tough inner lining stays in place to maintain a strong barrier.
- Noise Reduction
The properties of layered laminated impact resistant glass together with tight seals greatly reduce noise transmitted to the inside of your home. Accordion hurricane shutters and storm panels offer minimal noise reduction.
- UV Protection
Laminated glass windows protect your furniture, carpets and upholstery from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays. Only when Florida storm panels or other aluminum shutters are closed is sunlight blocked from entering a home.
- All of these benefits make impact resistant windows the ultimate choice for effortless hurricane window protection.
