Storm Impact Windows and Doors
Your investment in hurricane impact resistant windows and doors is a wise decision. Hurricane resistant impact windows and doors go through a series of rigorous tests, ensuring that the windows and doors -- typically the weakest elements of a structure -- do not compromise your home during a storm.
The most severe hurricane damage is typically caused when wind is allowed to enter a structure, creating internal pressure that can cause lasting, structural damage. Designed to resist the penetration of flying debris, hurricane resistant windows and doors protect your home from this damaging wind infiltration.
Types of Impact Windows
Single Hung Window
A single hung window is a traditional style sash operable window that opens without using any interior or exterior space. It is a perfect choice for most living areas in your home.
A casement window swings open like a door. Hinged on the side, casement windows provide excellent ventilation and unlike a single hung, it has no center rail to obstruct the view.
A project out or awning window is a top hinged outward opening window that protects the opening like an awning, providing ventilation even during rainy weather. Project Out windows are suitable in nearly every style of home and frequently used in bathrooms with obscure or textured glass.
Fixed windows are typically used for openings that are larger or where an opening window is not required. They are used to expand the view and bring in more daylight. A great choice for living rooms, dining rooms, master bedrooms and where ventilation is not a concern.
Designer Fixed Windows
A designer fixed window adds a luxurious look to any room in the house while bringing in daylight. A large selection of designer window shapes are available.
Horizontal Rolling Windows
A horizontal rolling window operates similar to a sliding door. The sash slides open perfect for satisfying bedroom egress requirements and is a popular style for contemporary and modern homes.

Impact products can only be classified as such after meeting the hurricane or wind-borne debris requirements and hurricane codes. Impact resistant doors and entrances installed by Beacon Glass Co meet these requirements, giving you the peace of mind that the entryway of your home is protected during a storm.
