Can Impact Windows Break?

Impact windows with a view of some greenery.When you invest in impact windows, you purchase them with the confidence that they won’t break—especially during extreme weather. However, it is possible for hurricane windows to break. Fortunately, it’s not in the way that you think.

What do we mean by that? Let’s break it down:

The Science Behind Impact Windows

Impact windows are built differently than regular windows, as they are designed to defend your home against debris and intense weather conditions. Typically, they consist of two glass windows—constructed with laminated glass—that are held together by an aluminum frame with a structural adhesive.

The process of laminating them together involves two annealed glass pieces and a special resin that’s put in between. As a result, when wind and debris hit them, impact windows can potentially crack, but they will never shatter. This prevents glass and debris from entering your home and wreaking havoc.
