We all know the effects of a hurricane can be devastating. But did you know your windows can help minimize or, in some cases, actually prevent damage from a hurricane? Having impact windows on your home can go a long way to ensuring your family, your home, and you, stay safe.
Impact windows, also referred to as hurricane or coastal windows, are impact-resistant. What does that mean exactly? Well, it means if you live on or near a coast these windows will help protect your home from the possible impacts of a storm or hurricane.
Simonton impact windows contain laminated glass. The lamination makes the glass virtually impenetrable.
In addition to laminated glass these windows have a reinforced frame. The combination of the laminated glass and reinforced frame help these windows stand up to just about anything coming their way. And we’re constantly test these windows to make sure they do.
In fact, our StormBreaker Plus hurricane windows meet the hurricane zone requirements of Miami-Dade County, which has the most strict hurricane zone requirements in the country.
