The Science Behind Hurricane-Impact Doors and Windows

The Science Behind Hurricane-Impact Doors and Windows

Technology is always progressing, offering better, stronger, faster options. When it comes to safety, it's important to have the most effective technology. Hurricanes are inevitable, especially in South Florida. Although we cannot control the weather, we can most certainly control the ways in which we protect ourselves, as well as our homes. 

Due to the effects of a hurricane, it's important to install hurricane-impact windows and hurricane-impact doors. The Florida Door Shop is proud to offer Florida residents this hurricane-impact technology. You may be thinking, how does it differ from standard doors and windows? This technology has been designed for the best possible protection. 

Do I Need Hurricane-Impact Doors and Windows?

If you live in an area that is subject to high speed winds and hurricanes, then this technology is recommended for your home. It's important to protect the contents of your home, your family members, and your peace of mind. 

Not only do these windows and doors protect you from severe weather and high speed winds, but they're also designed to keep burglars out. With impact resistant doors and windows, burglars cannot smash a window to enter your home. 

How Does This Technology Work?

Our hurricane rated windows and doors are designed to eliminate damage that may be caused during a storm. Our hurricane-impact doors and windows will prevent debris from causing damage to your home, protecting you and your loved one's inside. Essentially, this protects homes from wind and the resulting damage. 

In order to be impact resistant, a window needs to contain impact resistant glass. There are various options regarding materials and protection. When deciding on a window or door, focus on the PSF (pounds per square foot). The higher the PSF, the stronger the product is. 

At Florida Door Shop, there are many options to choose from. We have over 30 years of experience, providing doors and windows to many South Florida residents. Allow our expertise to guide you, making a decision that will not only bring you safety, but improve your peace of mind.
