Hurricane & Impact Windows
During heavy winds and rainy weather, you might find yourself gearing up for the arrival of a hurricane. In the face of such fierce weather conditions, traditional windows become weak points in your home’s defense. A single blow from the storm can shatter a window, instantly exposing your home to the ravages of wind and water.

Advantages of hurricane windows
Hurricane windows offer several significant advantages that make them a valuable addition to any home. Here are some elaborative benefits of hurricane windows:
Superior Impact Resistance
One of the most notable advantages of hurricane windows is their exceptional impact resistance. These windows are specifically engineered to withstand the forceful impact of flying debris during a hurricane or severe storm. The multiple layers of impact-resistant glass, often laminated with a special interlayer, create a robust barrier that can withstand high winds and projectile impacts. This feature helps prevent window breakage, minimizing the risk of property damage, water intrusion, and potential injury to occupants.
Enhanced Home Safety
Hurricane windows protect against storm-related damage and enhance overall home safety. These windows’ reinforced design is a deterrent against break-ins and intrusions. The impact-resistant glass is difficult to penetrate, providing additional security for your home. This feature offers peace of mind, especially during hurricane evacuations when homes are often left unattended.
Another advantage of hurricane windows is their energy-efficient properties. These windows are designed with features that help reduce energy consumption and enhance thermal insulation. The multiple layers of glass, along with low-emissivity (low-E) coatings, minimize heat transfer, effectively keeping the interior of your home cooler in hot climates and warmer in colder climates. By improving insulation, hurricane windows can lead to reduced heating and cooling costs, providing long-term energy savings.
Reduction in noise:
Hurricane windows can significantly reduce external noise transmission, creating a quieter and more peaceful indoor environment. The multiple layers of glass and the interlayer used in these windows act as sound barriers, effectively dampening outside noises such as traffic, construction, and other disturbances. This feature is particularly beneficial for homes located in busy urban areas or near airports, highways, or other noise sources.
Another valuable advantage of hurricane windows is their ability to protect from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. The impact-resistant glass used in these windows is often treated with a special UV coating that helps filter out a significant portion of UV radiation. This feature protects your furnishings, flooring, and artwork from fading or discoloration and provides added protection for your skin by reducing UV exposure while indoors.
