Hurricane Resistant Glass
Type of glass used in impact-resistant windows
As aforementioned, you will have two types of hurricane resistant glass to choose from.
Laminated Glass. Laminated glass is the more popular one out of the two. Even the windshield of your car is made from this glass. However, laminated glass that you will install at your space for protection from hurricanes will be thicker and consists of a unique film of the interlayer.
Insulated Laminated Glass. It is much like a double glazed window. Sturdy glass panes on each side create airspace to preserve gas, mainly argon. You may find this type of glass a bit more expensive, but it is more energy-efficient as well. Hurricane impact windows and doors will help reduce your heater and air conditioning bills by regulating the temperature conditions inside your home.
