Hurricane protection is just the beginning for your windows and safety.
The most obvious benefit of hurricane windows is protecting your home from the wind and water during a powerful storm. Most damage done to homes during hurricanes occurs as a result of broken windows. Flying debris breaks the window and high pressure air enters the home. This can either blow out the window on the opposite side of the home, or blow the roof right off your house.
There are several methods to protect your home or business from strong winds, hurricanes and tornadoes. These protection methods include plywood, window film, shutters, and hurricane windows. The current “gold standard” in certification for hurricane windows is the “Miami-Dade County Hurricane Impact Test”.
The windows are constructed of two layers of laminated glass. The glass has a strong, plastic film between the layers. In the event the window shatters, the film layer stays in place, protecting your home from wind damage and driving rain. The inner layer of the window varies according to the size and style of the window.
Impact-resistant windows consist of impact-resistant glass surrounded by a heavy duty frame which is securely fastened to the interior window header and frame. Their construction and anchoring keep high winds and debris from hurricanes from breaching your home’s outer envelope.
Suntech’s impact-resistant windows meet the most stringent code requirements protecting you and your home from hurricane-force winds and flying debris. These custom windows also help provide year-round security against thieves and intruders, dramatically reduce outdoor noise and filter out 99% of the UV light that enters your home and causes fading.
