Hurricane Window Prep

Hurricanes are unfortunately a common cause of disaster and damage in the coastal state of Florida. Due to our proximity to the tropics and the water, Florida is fairly prone to tropical storms and hurricanes, which can cause a significant amount of damage to your hard-earned property. An important component of hurricane prep is purchasing and installing hurricane impact windows and hurricane impact front doors. There are a variety of benefits to installing hurricane impact resistant windows and doors. The most obvious reason to purchase and install Hurricane windows and doors is safety. Hurricane are extremely destructive, and most people who live along the coast such as in this beautiful state of Florida know this. Florida Engineered Glass Corp provides hurricane impact windows and doors for Miami residents and also ship all across Florida. Call us today to secure your home!

 

Protecting Your Home From Hurricanes

 

There are many benefits when it comes to installing hurricane impact windows and hurricane impact front doors. Those who live in coastal states like Florida and have witnessed firsthand the destruction that hurricanes can leave behind can attest to this statement. When a hurricane heads your way, you don’t want to be stuck frantically trying to secure plywood around the openings around your house or storefront. This is where hurricane windows and doors come in. Florida Engineered Glass Corp offers hurricane impact doors and windows that can help provide you with peace of mind when a hurricane is coming your way towards your property. The main design of hurricane windows, also known as impact resistant windows, is shatter-resistant glass that is securely fastened to a premium built vinyl frame. Our hurricane windows consist of double layers of annealed or laminated glass bonded to a high resistance shatter proof membrane set in the center. The center layer is the key to helping secure your house from destructive wind and flying debris during a hurricane.

 

Impact Windows and Doors Are Key to Hurricane Prep

 

Florida Engineered Glass Corp provides hurricane windows and doors that can help with your peace of mind when you live in a hurricane prone area such as along the Florida coast. The center layer of our hurricane impact windows consists of an impact resistant film that can vary in thickness depending on the size of the window. Florida Engineered Glass Corp’s windows are manufactured to surpass or meet the impact requirements of standard Hurricane windows. We can also customize our glass fittings in order to produce hurricane impact french doors or screen doors. A major difference between a window with non impact resistant glass and our impact resistant glass windows is that if for some reason the outer layer does break, the broken/shattered pieces will adhere to the center layer of film rather than allowing the broken glass to fly into your home at very high speeds during a storm, which is what happens with regular windows.
