What is a hurricane impact window?
The frame of the hurricane-resistant window is made of high-strength materials, such as aluminum or vinyl. In addition, the impact glass is a composite of glass and other transparent materials, which can withstand the impact of debris and pressure difference in a destructive storm with a continuous wind speed of 50m/s or more without being torn.
Is Tempered Glass the same as impact?
There is a difference between tempered glass and impact-resistant glass. Tempered glass is heat-treated glass. During manufacture, the glass is heated first, and then the surface is rapidly cooled. The impact-resistant glass is made by using safety glaze for laminated glass. This type of impact-resistant glass is made by bonding two or more pieces of glass together with a transparent film, and has good resistance to hurricanes.
