Custom Wood Windows with impact resistant glass provide beautiful protection against the harshest climates
This glass stands up to strong impacts from
wind-borne debris as well as harsh coastal conditions.
In fact, ImpactGard® features the industry’s leading laminated glass technology that can withstand a nine-pound piece of lumber striking it head-on at approximately 34 miles per hour. It also reduces sound transmission, blocks up to 95 percent of harmful UV rays and enhances home security.
During a severe storm, a broken window can affect a home’s structural integrity. Windows and patio doors with ImpactGard protection are designed to resist impacts so even if the glass cracks, the fragments will adhere to the interlayer, so the shards remain within the frame. ImpactGard protection also meets the nation’s toughest building codes. These codes specify that windows must withstand a nine-pound 2x4 traveling at 50 feet per second (34 miles per hour).
Secure Forced-entry resistance
Windows and patio doors with ImpactGard protection resist forced entry. Because the interlayer separating the panes helps resist a potential intruder's glass cutter, break-ins are less likely.
