Can Impact Windows Prevent Burglaries
Windows are known to be the weakest point in every home—leaving you vulnerable to break-ins. But thanks to the fabrication and strength of hurricane resistant windows, they can be a deterrent against home intruders. A common thief would not be able to use force to break and enter with the added protection hurricane windows provide. Protect your home and ensure that access to your home is not easily gained with high quality and durable windows from Max Guard Hurricane.
Impact Windows Fabrication
Impact windows can withstand hurricane-force winds, heavy rain, debris, and storm damage. Max Guard Impact windows are built out of layers of glass and a plastic membrane that protects the glass from shattering. Instead, if the glass were to be impaled, the plastic would hold the pieces together and prevent the fracture from spreading throughout the window. A regular glass window would shatter with pressure and weaken the window entirely until it gives out. This would then give an intruder an opening to enter a home while the impact window would remain intact.
Impact Glass Resistance and Strength
Impact windows are made to be resistant up to a category five hurricane winds. Given how strong they are and the material they are made of, they are nearly impenetrable. If an intruder were to attempt to break in, they would need a chainsaw to get through the windows. Not only is that unfeasible but it takes considerably more attention and effort than many are willing to put in. Weather Shield shares that the risk of getting caught increases dramatically due to the noise and time it takes to break the window, making it not worth the risk for many burglars.
Deter Burglars With A Sticker
You may be wondering how a potential burglar would know whether your windows are hurricane resistant or not. Storm Solution shares that to easily identify a hurricane resistant window there is either a sticker or permanent mark engrained within the window. This label contains information on the glass and any safety measures it has passed. If an intruder were to approach a home with a hurricane resistant window, they would immediately know. With this new information, intruders would be hesitant to attempt a break in as they are extremely unlikely to gain access to your home successfully. Simply having hurricane windows is preventive and can lower the chances of a burglary.
