Here is a brief bit of information which will hopefully be of help to you. This is for those of you who need to install new windows around your commercial or residential property for the main reason of providing protection. Protection from what; some of you may have asked in the context of this note. And some of you may have asked; just what is hurricane impact glass, now that you have discovered that special distinctions have been made.
Call it then a special blend of protection. The terminology is not that important really. Just know that such formidable window installations are providing you with protection against several external factors. Your impact resistant glass is also commonly known as shatter proof glass. This name is quite direct in its meaning. No amount of force, it has to be said, will shatter the glass. It might crack it if external thrusts are that strong.
But no, it will not shatter your glass. You find this in all of your road worthy vehicles, don’t you? Hurricane impact windows need to be shatter proof to safeguard inhabitants and their property’s interiors from the force of flying debris as a result of the hurricane. This kind of window also acts as a good buffer against strong, gale force winds. There are those of you who are fortunate enough to not live in an area that is prone to hurricanes.
But strong winds are a familiarity to you. All it takes is just one nudge from the wind to crack a window, and you don’t want that. Also make a note that these high impact windows are able to provide you with protection against potential burglaries. As the saying goes; let them try.
