How Do Impact Windows Protect You Against The Environment

When Mother Nature strikes your home, it can cause damage in a variety of different ways. 

From heavy snowfall to large hail, to torrential rains that lead to flooding, the environment can be completely unpredictable and leave serious damage in its wake. While living in sunny South Florida certainly has its perks, it’s not exempt to these types of damage. In fact, South Florida is in the direct path of tropical storms and hurricanes alike, which bring heavy winds and serious rainfall as they move across the Atlantic Ocean towards Florida.

While homeowners have typically elected for more traditional methods such as accordion shutters or standard wood panels to protect their homes, impact windows actually protect your home tremendously better than the former options. In fact, impact windows offer protection against a number of environmental factors that could impact your home in a variety of ways.

Hurricane Protection

Designed with hurricanes in mind, impact windows offer drastically improved protection for your home over traditional methods such as shutters or wood panels. Eurotech impact windows are rated to withstand wind speeds upwards of 150+ miles per hour. This means that high wind speeds and airborne debris won’t be able to destroy your home in the middle of even the toughest storms. 

UV Protection

With South Florida’s demanding heat it can be just as hot inside as it is outside! Homeowners may find themselves getting sunburns while sitting inside their home all day. This is caused by the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays passing through standard windows and into your home. Not only can UV rays affect you, but can damage your belongings inside as well. Continued direct impact by UV rays can cause fabrics and paints to fade over time. Thankfully, Eurotech impact windows drastically reduce the amount of UV that is able to penetrate into the interior of your home, keeping you and your belongings safe—even if it’s 100 degrees out!

Sound Protection

Whether it’s a heavy storm raging outside, neighbors mowing their lawn early in the morning, or just traffic passing by, constant noise can quickly deteriorate your quality of life inside your home. Thick impact glass acts as a heavy insulator, keeping unwanted noise out of your home, bringing back the peace so you can enjoy your home with your loved ones to the fullest without any unnecessary distractions.

The environment may throw everything it can your way, but you can rest assured knowing you and your family are safe against the elements with your impact windows installed. To learn more, simply contact the Eurotech Windows team online, or give us a call at (954) 630-9967.
