Impact Resistant Doors
Why Do I need Impact Resistant Doors?
In the midst of a storm or hurricane, debris carried by high-velocity winds can shatter ordinary glass doors and windows. That's why impact resistant glass is vital in South Florida. Digging a little deeper, the laminated glass in impact resistant sliding doors and French doors is composed of layers of glass with a plastic layer (usually PVB) inside.
Unlike regular doors, impact resistant doors can hold up to high winds and extreme conditions. And even if the outer layer of glass does break from an impact, the glass will adhere to the inner layer of plastic. You'll see a characteristic spider-web crack, but your home and family will remain protected. By staying solid, impact resistant doors protect the structural integrity of your home.
Protection from the Elements
Though we love the balmy weather and coastal beauty of Florida, the Sunshine State is hit more frequently by tropical weather and hurricanes than any other U.S. state. Luckily, impact resistant doors can make a huge difference to your safety. By sealing your home from the elements, impact resistant doors ensure that your possessions and family members stay sheltered from high winds, rain, debris, and structural collapse.
Protection from Burglars
With regular glass, it's relatively simple to shatter a door with a blunt object. However, impact resistant glass deter burglars by providing a series of obstacles to entry. Since the outer layer doesn't shatter, it presents an impediment to burglars even if they do manage to crack the outside layer of glass. At the end of the day, this leads to a more secure home — and greater peace of mind for you.
Blocks Noise and Saves Energy
The layer of plastic inside laminated glass provides some extra benefits: UV blocking and sound-proofing. Designed to be sturdier and more soundproof than ordinary doors, you'll reap the benefits of fewer disturbances from the highway or neighborhood. And your energy bill will thank you, as well. Impact resistant doors are designed to block UV light from outside, helping you regulate your home's energy throughout the year.
Save on Insurance
In an area prone to hurricanes, many homeowners insurance companies are happy to issue discounts for impact resistant doors. In fact, you might find that the annual discount you receive from impact resistant doors might greatly offset the initial upfront cost over the years. Make sure to talk to your insurance company about any special deals they might offer. In addition to keeping your insurance company happy, installing impact resistant doors satisfies Florida's Building Codes for high-risk areas.
