Hurricane-Resistant Windows – The Basics

Windows that are sold as or marketed as being “hurricane-resistant”, “impact-resistant”, or “stormproof”, are those that are constructed using high-impact glass that is specially treated with either ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) or polyvinyl butyral (PVB).

These windows are designed to ensure optimal protection for your home from the various elements that may occur during a tropical storm system. The windows are tested in a rigorous manner to ensure that they meet the absolute most stringent of codes for coastal regions.

These impact-resistant windows are created to protect against debris that may fly during intense winds, high-driving rain storms, cyclic levels of pressure, intense UV rays from the sun, as well as extreme temperatures – such as exceptionally high heat.

The products that you may choose from here at Chattahoochee Windows are both highly durable and designed to withstand the test of time. These windows are constructed on the foundation of several decades of window technology expertise and experience.

Our window products combine exceptional beauty with unique aesthetics, high levels of flexibility in design, and the best impact performance to ensure optimal protection for homes in the harsh coastal regions in the State of Georgia.

The Protection of Hurricane-Resistant Windows

Naturally, one of the main advantages of hurricane-resistant windows is that they are unlikely to break and result in water damage on the interior of your home. If breakage does occur, they do so in a pattern that prevents glass shards from flying and injuring you, your loved ones, and your pets.

The ultimate benefit of the protection offered by hurricane-resistant windows is that it helps your home remain structurally sound during intense storms.

During tropical storm systems, pressure changes are imminent. Sudden changes with the pressure around and in your home may result in your windows or doors suddenly blowing out. When this happens, the total destruction of your home may occur.

By keeping the windows and the doors that are part of your home intact, dangerous pressure changes will not occur. As a result, roofs will not blow off, walls will not collapse, and your and your loved ones will remain safe.
