Hurricane Impact Glass

By: Michael Cottier

The real major benefit though, is the fact that once they are installed, there is nothing else to worry about.

Other storm protection, like storm shutters require you to open and close them, depending on what the weather is like.

Hurricane impact glass stays installed, and continuously protects you all year long.

Hurricane impact glass usually comes surrounded by heavy duty aluminum, but the quality of that aluminum depends on the contractor. The impact glass has a special silicone glazing process done to it, which helps to keep it from shattering.

Usually an impact will crack the glass little on the outer layer, but an inner layer keeps the glass together preventing anything from entering your home or business.

When buying impact glass, you want to make sure that it meets all local hurricane and storm codes.

Another great benefit of impact glass is its ability to protect the interior of your home from dangerous UV rays that can damage the color of your rugs, coaches and anything else inside.

It also reduces the noise outside to a tolerable level, so you will not be bothered indoors.

If security is another concern of yours, you can rest assured that impact glass will help keep those vandals out of your home or business, while providing storm protection at the same time!

It all boils down to an easy and simple product, that provides security and protection, while still maintaining the beauty of whatever building they go in.

Note: Impact Glass can be more expensive then other storm shutters, because there is the labor involved of removing the old glass and putting the new ones in.
