Hurricane Windows' Benefits

Below you will find the key benefits of installing impact-resistant windows and doors:


Installing impact windows provides coastal citizens with 24-hour, hassle-free hurricane protection. With our hurricane windows, you avoid the time-consuming, labor-intensive task of putting up and taking down storm shutters. 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% burglarproof, 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 claim that impact windows and doors are burglarproof.


Drop 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.


Impact windows and doors are approved exterior components which qualify for insurance discounts if all of the house openings are protected with impact-resistant windows or doors. Policyholders can obtain up significant insurance premium discounts if they provide proof of our products installed at their properties.


Approved 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.


Our 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 homeowner 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. A 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.

Hurricane Impact Windows and Noise Reduction

While supervising an in-progress window installation, we decided to record a short video capturing the moment in which the grass was being mowed. As you can hear on this video, the noise reduction of a casement impact window is significant. Although our windows will not completely insulate your property from the undesired outside noise, it can bring it down to comfortable levels.


Because of the interlayer used in laminated glass, impact windows and doors block almost 100% of the ultraviolet light coming from the Sun. Impact windows can protect your valuables inside your house, including furniture, rugs and artwork, from fading away or discoloring due to constant exposure to direct sunlight.
