Hurricane Windows' Benefits

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

 BENEFITS OF IMPACT WINDOWS 

24-HR HURRICANE PROTECTION


Installing impact windows provides coastal residents with 24-hour, hassle-free hurricane protection.

No Shutters Needed
With our hurricane windows, you avoid the time-consuming, labor-intensive task of putting up and taking down storm shutters.

Enhanced Protection against Burglary
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.

SIGNIFICANT NOISE REDUCTION


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.

Street Noise Reduction
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. While supervising an in-progress window installation, we decided to record a short video capturing the moment in which the grass was being mowed.

About this Video: 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.

IMPROVED ENERGY-EFFICIENT WINDOWS


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.

Glass Options
Equipped with the right glazing option, our impact windows are much more energy efficient than the existing single-glazed windows.

Large Openings, No Problem
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, hurricane impact windows provide excellent insulating capabilities, helping isolate interior spaces from the outdoor weather changes and contributing to important utility bill savings.

INSURANCE PREMIUM DISCOUNTS


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.

Impact Glass Means Savings
Policyholders can obtain up significant insurance premium discounts if they provide proof of our products installed at their properties.

MAXIMUM UV PROTECTION


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.

PROVEN QUALITY


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.
