Dade County Approved Windows
Dade County is famous for its warm climate, but the area is also unfortunately prone to storms and hurricanes. These natural weather patterns can wreak havoc for property owners. In addition to the damage that can be caused by gusting winds and torrential downpours, these storms can hurl objects at high speeds.
Dade County maintains some of the country's highest standards for impact resistant windows and doors. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992 created winds in excess of 100 miles per hour, an extensive study was commissioned to examine and improve existing building codes. The Florida Building Code, based on this study, went into effect in 2002. It details the tests that must be undertaken in order for a window to be approved as impact resistant.
