Impact Glass: What are they?

Not to be confused with Tempered glass- Impact glass is otherwise known impact-resistant or safety glass. This type of glass is designed to withstand large amounts of force (and impact, as the name implies) without breaking into shards which could be very dangerous.

It is usually used in buildings, cars, and other manufacturing and industrial professionals where safety and durability is very important. 

This type of glass is made by stacking multiple layers of glass with something called an interlayer. This interlayer is usually a substance called polyvinyl butyral or PVB. PVB acts as a sort of glue which holds the layered glass together in case of impact which reduces breakage and risks of injury. 

Why Should You Consider This?

While standard glass is cheaper and more accessible, you can never go wrong with an added insurance to your life. Here are a few reasons why you should consider getting them:

  • Hurricane Protection - In case of hurricanes, impact glass windows (and doors) do not break even with the strong winds. Therefore you can be sure of your safety inside your home while winds rage outside. 
  • Intruder Protection - Typically, intruders try to break into houses through glass that they can shatter-  like your windows. With impact glass, there is very little they can do to actually break them. It is virtually impossible!
  • Noise Reduction - Because of their design and thickness, Impact windows and doors are able to effectively reduce noise in your home. Both incoming and outgoing noises are reduced.
