South Florida Doors and Windows - FAQ

What can impact windows withstand?

Impact windows can withstand harsh winds and be hit with objects. Impact windows are also called hurricane windows because they are the windows recommended to have when dealing with a potential hurricane. They can withstand the pressure of winds up to 185 mph and muffles a lot of the noise you would hear from outside. As the name portrays, impact windows can also withstand being hit from different objects. There is always debris flying around during a hurricane and impact glass eliminates the risk of having your window broken from debris. Although it can’t stop it completely, it’s also useful to slow down buglers. When hit hard enough impact glass will crack like a car windshield instead of shattering. This slows down buglers tremendously and may stop them altogether.
