Impact Windows

Impact-Resistant Windowpanes consist of two or more tempered glass panes that are sandwiched together by a clear plastic film. This film functions by holding the glass together if the window is impacted hard enough to shatter. If the window is shattered, the film will continue to hold the window in place to prevent rain, wind, or wind-borne debris from coming into your home during a storm. In addition to reinforcing the glass panes, impact-rated windows are also manufactured with a reinforced frame and require special fasteners to install them in your home.
