To Get A Free Estimate On Hurricane Windows Call 954-256-1055
So you’re shopping around for impact windows, but you are starting to wonder how these manufacturers like PGT Industries and CGI Windows actually test these windows for strength. It’s pretty simple; they aim a projectile at the impact glass and see if they can break it. The best test for hurricane proof windows actually comes from Miami-Dade County, as they use both large and small missiles in their testing.
For the storm windows to earn the stamp of approval, it has to stand up to being struck by a 9 pound two by four size piece of wood without shattering. Which is the equivalent of flying debris travelling at about 35 miles per hour. That is what they consider to be the large missile test. For the small missile test, they use ball bearings made of steal and shoot them into the storm tight window glass, this is the equivalent of wind-borne debris travelling at 50 miles per hour.
