Hurricane resistant windows are designed to be safer than standard glass windows and can withstand more extreme weather conditions. Strong hurricane glass, also known as laminated glass, is installed to replace standard window glass. Hurricane glass is designed to withstand extreme wind speeds and prevent wind-borne debris.
Similar in construction to car glass, the laminated glass in a hurricane window is made from two pieces of glass with a strong and flexible polymer layer in between. Even if the window glass is shattered by flying debris, this polymer layer remains intact, protecting your home from the wind and rain for the remainder of the storm. It also prevents the glass from breaking into large, sharp shards that would be dangerous for anyone left in the home.
A durable frame is another key component for effective impact resistance. Optimal performance requires proper installation, so selected impact windows come with pre-drilled mounting holes that help ensure precise installation, superior performance and peace of mind. GANGYA's impact windows do not require any additional storm preparation to comply with local regulations. Simply close and lock the window before the storm hits.
