As many hurricane veterans will attest, you can protect your home from high winds, rain, and the
destructive force of wind-borne debris by installing impact-resistant windows. Bayside

windows in Clearwater, Tampa and St. Pete, Florida. If you live in Tampa Bay, we've got you covered!
Impact Resistant Windows
Impact-resistant windows consist of
impact-resistant glass surrounded by a
heavy duty frame which is securely
fastened to the interior window header
and frame. Their construction and
anchoring keep high hurricanes’ winds
and debris from hurricanes from
breaching your home’s outer envelope.
The idea for shatter-resistant glass windows for homes came from the automotive field where
laminated glass has been in use for years to protect occupants. There are two common types
of impact-resistant glazing for your windows. The first is laminated glass consisting of two sheets
of glass with an inner shatter-proof membrane between them. Once the glass receives a
significant impact, it may shatter but the inner membrane holds the pieces firmly in its frame so
that the barrier is not broken. These windows are designed to handle wind-borne debris hurled at
high wind speeds and repeated impact from would-be intruders. In both cases, penetration or
wind or water is nearly impossible. Interior lamination varies from .015 inch to .090 inch in
thickness and the inner film can be ordered in a variety of color tints helping to reduce or eliminate
sun fade and UV damage in your home.
