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.

What is the Miami-Dade wind code?
In the HVHZ(High Velocity Hurricane Zone), the 2010 FBCR specifies a wind speed of 175 mph(195 miles per hour in 2021) in Miami-Dade County and 170 mph(185 miles per hour in 2021) in Broward County. The changes to the load combinations highlight how the design pressures calculated from the new wind speed maps relate to the design pressures using the wind speed maps in the 2007 FBCB. Downlaod PDF
