Impact Resistant Windows And Doors

Florida continues to be one of the most popular locations for people to move to during their retirement. Images of sunny days and warm weather are quite compelling when you're suffering through a cold northern winter. While these visions are mostly true, they often overlook the reality of storms that can cause tremendous damage and devastation.

Building guidelines, however, can ensure that you are protected during high winds and heavy downpours. The building codes in Florida for impact resistance are among the most stringent in the country. These codes put forth specific tests that windows and doors must pass to be certified as impact resistant.

High Standards in Dane County for Impact Resistant Windows And Doors
In Dane County, all exterior openings to the home, including doors and windows, must be certified as impact resistant. Due to their lower elevation, doors are required to pass the large-missile test to be approved as impact resistant. The first part of this test fires a wood stud from a canon at the door to ensure that the door can withstand the impact. Afterward, it must also stand up to the force of hurricane-strength winds.

Windows higher on your home can also be subjected to the small-missile test to be certified as impact resistant, which means that multiple ball bearings are simultaneously fired at the windows at higher speeds. At Borano, you can find decorative exterior wood doors that are impact resistant, featuring a thicker door and stronger hinges. Borano also offers matching mahogany windows that pass their necessary tests.
