Why impact windows?
Installing impact windows would be the right choice due to how useful they can be. Impact windows as the name says are windows that are resistant to impact. Primarily in South Florida, impact windows are used to defend against hurricanes. The glass is made of two thick panels of laminated glass and an inner layer of polyvinyl butyral that holds the panels together. This is what gives the windows the strength to withstand the strong winds from a hurricane. The windows can be used by themselves without shutters so you can still look outside. The windows are also used to defend against robbery as the glass can withstand the impact from different objects. This slows down burglars from entering your home as the glass does not shatter on impact but merely cracks and stays intact
