What Are Hurricane Impact Windows?

January 10, 2021

Hurricane-rated impact windows are often referred to as Hurricane windows.  Hurricane windows are specially designed to offer year-round protection from high winds and other perils. Like auto safety glass, they are made with laminated glass that doesn’t break into shards if shattered, the windows remain intact even if the glass is broken. To create these windows, two panels of glass are bonded with a clear, ultra-strong interlayer. Window and door frames and window sashes, as well as the hardware, are also specially designed to keep the windows or doors in place during the harshest weather.  Installing hurricane-rated windows and doors eliminates the need to close up with unsightly shutters, put up panels, or hang plywood in the event of an impending storm.
