What exactly are hurricane impact resistant windows?

Hurricane impact resistant windows are passive protection systems that are in place 24/7. They do not need to be activated when you are busy with other storm preparations and they also provide protection against unexpected weather events. Hurricane impact resistant windows are laminated glass windows that consist of two pieces of glass that sandwich a sheet of clear polyvinyl butaryl (PVB) plastic laminate. Although the glass layers may break if subjected to significant force, they remain bonded to the laminate and are less likely to shatter. Laminated glass alone is not rated to provide protection against windborne debris that may occur during a hurricane. Hurricane impact resistant window systems are a combination of laminated glass and reinforced window frames. They are the only window systems that are tested and designed to protect against wind pressure AND windborne debris. It is important to know that all hurricane impact resistant windows are laminated glass systems, but not all laminated glass systems are impact rated. Simply because a product is labeled “laminated” does mean it has passed the required missile impact tests necessary for an impact rating.
