Impact windows are necessary to protect your home, your belongings and your loved ones from hurricanes and their destructive impact.
For a window to qualify as impact rated, it must first pass strict testing before it is offered to the public for sale. These windows must absorb the impact of an 8 foot 2 x 4 fired from an air cannon at a rate of 50 feet per second. The impact window must not be penetrated.
Storm windows use triple pane impact resistant glass that is enveloped in a clear, poly vinyl butyl layer of rubber. The glass is reinforced by a shatter proof membrane that holds the glass firmly to the frame. The glass is then secured to the interior header of the frame. You will find the same technology in car windshields because they are exposed to similar forces.
