Impact Rated Windows
Homes along the coast of Florida lie within a wind-borne debris hurricane zone, which means homes and home designs in these regions must meet that area’s energy code and building code performance requirements, such as the wind-borne debris protection code. Rather than relying on shutter systems—which only work when you put them up—we recommend impact rated windows.
Whether you’re an architect working a new home design or a homeowner interested in window replacement, we invite you to visit our showroom to view our impact rated windows and other products, or contact us today to schedule a consultation.
With H.B.S., Inc., you’ll benefit from the tight relationships we have with our manufacturers. You won’t get this advantage from a lumberyard. We represent the highest end products with a proven performance history.
Whether you’re an architect looking to nail down the details of your custom home design or a homeowner looking to replace your inefficient patio door, our professional window and door consultants are ready to help.
Contact us today to schedule a consultation. We’ll help you choose the right products for your budget and application, and you can rest assured that we understand the realities of building construction and Florida code compliance.
Impact Rated Windows vs. Shutter Systems
The Problem with Shutters
In the year 2004, Florida residents were inundated with four major hurricanes in the same year. Most shutter installers had less than 24 hours to install the shutters on their “list” of customer’s homes. The bitter reality was that only a few customers were serviced before the installers were evacuated or left to take care of their own families.
If you’re going to rely on shutters, you will need to make sure you have a fool-proof plan to install your shutters (even when you are absent).
The Alternative—Impacted Rated Windows
If you haven’t been in the market for new windows in a while, know that window technology has dramatically improved in the past 20 years. We now have the technology to produce high-performance windows that are more energy-efficient, water-resistant, impact-resistant, and have architectural details that enhance the appearance of your home.
Our Impact Rated Windows
H.B.S., Inc. has many impacted rated windows to choose from. In fact, 95% of the windows and doors we sell are impact rated! In addition to being code-compliant, our windows offer the benefit of being more energy efficient while also reducing sound.
We offer products made from wood, aluminum, vinyl, and the newer fiberglass. These products are available in all functioning styles—including single hung, double hung, casement, picture, awning, horizontal roller, and custom shape options—to complement the architecture of your home. Our professional staff is available to help you choose the best products for your application and budget.
