What is Impact Glass

Impact glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic "spider web" cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass.

The impact glass is one of the most important components in an impact window and door system. While it is great for safety and security, if not protected properly, could lead to issues in the future.

That is why we offer many types of different window and door systems that have different ways of protecting the glass from the damaging Florida climates.
