Shelter from the Storm
The biggest benefit impact doors provide homeowners in Florida with is increased protection from the elements. While Florida is a great place to live for those who enjoy the sun and spending time outside year-round, the Sunshine State is also hit by more tropical storms and hurricanes than any other state. Fortunately, impact-resistant doors are engineered to withstand heavy winds, rain, and impact from flying projectiles without succumbing to the damage. Even in storms where there are winds in excess of 100 mph, impact doors will help protect you and your home. In fact, due to the way these doors are designed, (with two layers of impact-resistant glass separated by a layer of plastic) even if the outer layer of glass should break upon impact, the glass will adhere to the inner plastic and continue protecting your home from the elements.
