What to know about impact windows?
Impact windows are heavy duty frames of laminated glass with a sheet of polyvinyl butryral to hold them together. The primary function of impact glass is to provide better defense against the strong winds from hurricanes and flying debris. Impact windows can come in many sizes and different forms. There are single hung windows which are the standard windows that open upward. There are horizontal rollers that open horizontally instead of vertically. These windows can range from 36, 48, 72, and more in width and 24,36,48,60, and more in height. You can also adjust the paint finish on the metal to your preference.
Other than protecting your home against hurricanes, they also reduce the heat coming inside your house, delay robberies, and block UV rays from entering your home. In Florida, it has now become a standard for every new home being built needs to use impact windows due to how well it protects against storms.
