Hurricane Doors and Windows, It’s not too Late!
Living in Florida, we have beautiful weather and sun to entertain guests in and relax. But we also have severe thunderstorms and hurricanes that can cause damage to our homes – especially our lanai enclosures and windows. Thunderstorms with heavy gusting winds don’t provide enough time, nor do we expect to need, to put up storm shutters, and hurricane shutters can be difficult to install and later takedown. When it comes to the weather down here, it’s not a matter of if, but when, and being prepared in advance can save you on damage costs later. With Hurricane Doors and Windows, you are protected year-round from all types of weather at your homes most vulnerable points – including storms brought on by intruding burglars.
Hurricane Impact Glass is made to withstand wind speeds exceeding 180mph (289km/h). Category 5 hurricanes are storms sustaining 156mph (251km/h), so the Impact Glass is well within the bounds of any storm we are likely to get here. So what makes it so strong? Laminated impact glass is us built to take a hit. Comprised of two pieces of laminated glass with an impact resistant layer in-between. This layer also works to block 99% of UV rays, so bonus on not having your really nice leather couch or wooden furniture suffering from sun damage and changing colors. Because these doors are impact resistant, they are extremely hard to break into. Would be burglars most commonly try to break in through sliding glass doors, and there is no breaking into these. We also provide hurricane impact windows that do the same job so you can eliminate the stress and worry of when the next storm rolls through.
We also still provide Non-Impact sliding doors, which are made of tempered, 1/4”, single pane glass that can withstand the wind, but are not designed to take on any debris. These doors are perfect for Condos or sliders in homes above 60ft. Building codes require that non-impact doors be installed on any house with shutters, or in condos above 60ft that are above the debris field.
