Over the last 20 years, there has been great advancement in industry testing and technology to protect homes from windborne debris and water. 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.
