If you are a homeowner in Riviera Beach, Florida, you understand how important it is to be ready for a hurricane. Window protection is a key aspect of hurricane preparedness.

There are several products and systems available that provide windborne debris impact protection for windows.

Hurricane impact resistant windows are made of laminated glass, which consists of two or more panes that has clear plastic-like film pressed between each pane and then is bonded together. The layering of materials and their thickness is what makes these windows withstand hurricane force winds and flying debris. Hurricane impact resistant windows can shatter however, they will not break completely. In the event of a broken window, the plastic interlayer holds the glass fragments in place and keeps them intact. This will prevent water, wind or flying debris from entering through the window and into a home or other structure. Any window labeled impact resistant must undergo testing on the glass, frame, attachment hardware, as well as the installation method. Hurricane impact resistant windows and doors are tested to determine their ability to resist the impact of large wind borne debris (missiles) by shooting 2x4s of specified lengths and weights against them at specific speeds. Several different groups have developed engineering standards that establish missile sizes, test methods and acceptance criteria for the tests. For houses, the typical large missile test for missile category D consists of a 9-pound 2×4 piece of lumber impacting the shutter or product end on at 50 feet per second.

The laminated glass in our windows and doors also provides excellent sound reduction properties. The use of laminated glass results in noise reduction of approximately 30% for standard airplane, railroad and vehicular traffic noise. The installation of hurricane impact resistant windows and doors can reduce the effect of other outside noises by up to 50%. Impact windows and doors can help make your home a more tranquil environment. In fact, the same type of glass is often used in airports and recording studios to significantly reduce ambient noise.
