What are Hurricane Impact Windows?
When a hurricane's heavy winds, rain, and pressure strike your home, regular windows can fracture or break loose from their frame. The broken glass can become a missile, posing a risk to family members. In addition, a failed window exposes your home to wind and water damage. A broken window can also pressurize your home, increasing the risk of lifting the roof or damaging its structural integrity.
Impact windows withstand these forces of nature. Built of layered glass, impact windows remain intact when hit by a flying projectile rather than breaking into individual shards of glass. You can be confident that the PGT impact windows we install are designed and manufactured to withstand high-velocity storms. They undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet or exceed Florida's code standards, and PGT backs their windows with an attractive warranty.
Install Hurricane-Rated Windows to Protect Your Family
You deserve to feel safe in your home: in the face of an impending storm and at all other times as well. In addition to hurricane protection, impact windows safeguard your home in other ways:
- Security against intruders: The strong hurricane glass makes it hard for intruders to break into and enter your home.
- Noise reduction: The thicker glass and framing cancel outside noise.
- Energy efficiency: The tight seals keep conditioned air inside your home and block out ultraviolet rays.
Expert Hurricane-Rated Windows Installation
With hurricane-impact windows, a quality installation is crucial. The installer must anchor them correctly for impact windows to perform at their best. If the installer leaves too big of a gap, ignores the edge distance, or doesn't use enough anchors, it lowers the window's rating and, therefore, its performance.
