If you’ve been doing research on impact windows, we’re sure you’ve read about how they can protect your home from natural disasters, such as hurricanes. But did you know that impact windows can actually protect your home from burglars and intruders as well?
Throughout the years, there have been numerous studies conducted on the behavior of burglars and intruders, with the intent of gathering more information on what were some of the biggest deterrents when it came to breaking into homes and what were some of the most common ways they gained access to your home. Gathering this information and learning from it is instrumental for leading security companies as well as leading window and door companies to help you better protect your home and your belongings. One of the main things that these studies revealed is that the most common way that burglars gain access to your home, second only to walking in through an unlocked front door, is by breaking the glass of a first-floor window, reaching in, unlocking the window, pushing it open, and climbing inside. So besides ensuring that all of your doors are locked, ensuring that your windows are safe is the best thing you can do to prevent yourself from being a victim of a home burglary.
That being said, replacing your current windows with superior hurricane impact windows is the single best way to ensure that your windows are safe and that intruders will not be entering your home through your windows.
Our impact windows not just meet, but they actually exceed all industry standards when it comes to strength and durability. They are specifically engineered to withstand Category 5 hurricane-force winds and to hold up against direct impacts from flying debris at tremendous forces. If it can withstand all of that, you can be certain that our windows are able to withstand anything and everything that an intruder or a burglar may throw at them, literally and metaphorically.
The durability and strength found in all of our impact windows stems from the fact that they are made with more than one layer of glass, and the different layers are held together by either a layer of either polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), which are bonding resins. When an object hits the window, the bonding resin keeps the window intact, rather than breaking and sending shards of glass everywhere. While the glass may crack, intruders will not be able to break through. In other words, if an intruder were to take a crowbar to your window, he would be unable to make a hole in order to gain entry. The window will still be held together so your home will not be made vulnerable, and it will still be protected.
