IMPACT WINDOWS AND DOORSalso known as hurricane windows, high impact windows or impact resistant windows
Impact windows are an excellent alternative to hurricane shutters or storm panels. Astor Windows, based in Miami, offers impact windows in both aluminum and vinyl frames. When struck by flying debris during a storm, impact windows are designed to stay in one piece, protecting the building from the devastating effects of high winds. At very competitive prices, you can purchase impact-resistant windows and doors and obtain the following important benefits:
24-HR HURRICANE PROTECTIONInstall our custom-designed impact windows and obtain 24-hour hurricane protection, avoiding the hassle of putting up and taking down storm panels. Hurricane windows are built with a PVB interlayer sealed in between two layers of glass which makes break-ins a bit more difficult to occur. Although the laminated glass in our impact windows is not 100% burglar proof, it can serve as an excellent burglar deterrent. Statistically, one third of burglars will gain entry through a window, while the remaining two thirds will get in through an insecure door. Having impact windows and doors installed in your house can offer you the extra time your alarm system needs to advise the police in case of a break-in. Important disclaimer: Astor Windows does not hereby claims or implies that impact windows and doors are burglar proof.
IMPROVED ENERGY-EFFICIENT WINDOWSDrop your utility bills and realize important electrical savings by installing our impact-resistant products, which are built of heavy-duty aluminum and vinyl frames with double-glazed panes. Equipped with the right glazing option, our impact windows are much more energy efficient than the existing single-glazed windows. Today, Miami homeowners prefer large panoramic openings that provide uninterrupted views. However, this architectural trend comes at an increased utility bill due to the greater sun exposures. Large, single-glazed windows allow heat or cold transfer from the outside to the inside of the property. In contrast, impact windows provide excellent insulating capabilities, helping isolate interior spaces from the outdoor weather changes and contributing to important utility bill savings.
INSURANCE PREMIUM DISCOUNTSImpact windows and doors are effective windstorm protective systems recognized by insurance companies such as Citizens Property Insurance Corporation. If all of the house openings are protected with impact-resistant windows or doors, policyholders can obtain up to 45% premium discounts, reducing the effective price or cost of installing the windows.
PROVEN QUALITYApproved by Miami-Dade County, our impact-resistant windows and doors are made of high-grade aluminum and vinyl framing built to last for a long time and designed to withstand the Florida climate. Astor Windows carry products made by Florida's leading manufacturers of impact-resistant windows and doors. With 20 years of proven track records of building glass-and-glazing components for the coastal areas, our manufacturers offer us peace of mind that the products we install will perform when needed.
SIGNIFICANT NOISE REDUCTIONOur hurricane impact windows and doors help reduce outdoor noise significantly. Our client testimonials confirm that impact-resistant glass is a great contributor to bringing peace and quiet environments inside the house or property. For homeonwers who live near busy intersections, highways or heavy traffic, installing our hurricane impact windows and doors has proven to be an effective noise attenuation solution. Please see the video below filmed at one of our completed projects in Miami. Construction crew was working outside this house when we were supervising the end of the window installation. You can notice the significant noise reduction accomplished with a casement window.
MAXIMUM UV PROTECTIONHurricane windows and doors provide 99% blockage of ultraviolet (U-V) light, protecting your valuable interiors, including your favorite photographs, loveseats, Persian rugs and even your flooring, from fading or discoloring after repeated exposure to direct sunlight. This characteristic is particular important for us in Florida where we can enjoy the direct sunshine all year round. Our lines of high impact windows act like sunscreen to your house, blocking the damaging U-V without noticeably reducing visible light.
