What does non-impact mean?
Non-impact sliding glass doors are doors that have not been tested for impact resistance. The non-impact doors are tested for hurricane winds only. This means that they can withstand the force of the storm but if something flies towards the door the glass could break. The glass used in non-impact is single pane 1/4″ tempered. Insulated is also available.
By the Florida Building Code non-impact doors can be installed on houses with shutters or in condo’s above 60 feet. Above 60′ they have found that debris does not fly and therefore impact glass is not required. Lee County, Collier County and the City of Naples have all modified the code. Feel free to call Builders Glass of Bonita for more information on your local codes.
