Even though hurricane windows manufacturers build for protection against hurricanes and other related natural disasters, impact resistant windows and doors also offer you 24-hour theft protection and security. Windows manufacturers use a PVB interlayer, sealed between two layers of glass, which allows for strong binding, optical clarity, and tough adhesion. Furthermore, during missile testing to certify the product as impact resistant, this glass interlayer has to resist impacts with a piece of lumber traveling at 34 mph and it cannot be penetrated.
For this reason, our impact resistant products serve as a protective barrier against windstorms, wind-borne debris, and can also protect your home against burglary. Since Laminated impact glass is extremely hard to break, impact windows make it difficult for thieves to enter, which gives your alarm system or yourself enough time to contact law enforcement. However, keep in mind that our laminated impact products do not offer 100% protection against breaking and entering, but they do present a challenge to burglars.
At Eco Window Systems, one of Miami-Dade’s impact resistant windows manufacturers, we are aware of how modern architecture demands large picture windows that bring in lots of natural lighting and give your home an open feel. Yet, these trendy windows many times come with an increase in utility bills due to poor insulation. However, you do not have to give up on your dream of having large windows that capture the great views around your home due to high energy consumption, not at all, you can install energy efficient impact products. Heat transfer is an inevitable outcome between two objects of different temperatures.
Since standard windows are not energy efficient they provide little insulation, which causes greater heat flow. However, our EcoGuard impact windows and doors are built using a PVB interlayer sealed between two layers of glass. PVB is a chemical resin that adheres to the two glasses for strong binding and insulation. This interlayer reduces the thermal conduction of glass, and consequently increases its insulating capability. Impact-Resistant Glass Windows Manufacturers can help you select the appropriate window systems to achieve great energy savings.
Many insurance companies recognize the installation of impact-resistant doors and windows from certified windows manufacturers for insurance discounts. When all openings in your home are protected by our impact resistant windows and doors you can be eligible for a premium discount of up to 40%. If you are not sure your insurance company offers discounts you should contact your insurance agent before making any purchases. However, keep in mind that according to the Florida Statute 627.0629 for residential properties, all insurance companies are required to provide homeowners with insurance discounts if their homes are protected against windstorms, effectively.
“It is the intent of the Legislature that insurers provide savings to consumers who install or implement windstorm damage mitigation techniques, alterations, or solutions to their properties to prevent windstorm losses. A rate filing for residential property insurance must include actually reasonable discounts, credits, or other rate differentials, or appropriate reductions in deductibles, for properties on which fixtures or construction techniques demonstrated to reduce the amount of loss in a windstorm have been installed or implemented (Florida Statute 627.0629 for homeowners).”
