It’s no secret that Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach are in ‘Hurricane Country.’ Hardly a year goes by without the National Weather Service warning South Florida residents to watch out for a tropical storm or even a hurricane. Hurricane preparedness is a virtual way of life in Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Miami. We’ve been very lucky for many years, but after the Katrina experience in New Orleans, we can only hope that our Florida luck will continue! That said, smart homeowners and businesses are preparing for the inevitable with so-called ‘Hurricane Glass.’ Known in the industry as impact-resistant, insulated glass, or high impact glass, this glass has a sheet of plastic inside of it which strengthens the glass and mitigates impacts. (Note: not all types of this glass are the same – reach out to one of our skilled specialists for an explanation of the different types of glass that consumers call ‘impact glass,’ as well as a free estimate!).
Here are some of the benefits of impact-resistant glass –
- Hurricane Protection – of course, there is no guarantee if a hurricane strikes head-on. However, if we are subject to lesser winds, this type of glass doesn’t fail completely, or all at once. The internal plastic gives it some degree of flexibility, allowing it to lessen the internal impact of wind, rain, and other elements that can be so damaging in a storm situation in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or West Palm Beach.
- Vandal / Burglar Resistance – this type of glass is more difficult for a vandal or burglar to break, again because it does not collapse all at once. This makes entry and exit into the building more difficult, slowing them down or causing them to give up entirely. Plus it can be dangerous to enter thru a glass like this, so if it breaks for another reason, impact-resistant glass is a deterrent to entry after the fact.
- Energy efficiency – our impact resistant glass is also energy efficient, reducing the glare of that hot Florida light into your house, and thereby reducing your energy bill. It’s hot in Miami in the summer, so take action!
