Gold Coast Shutters and Fence
In South Florida hurricane protection impact windows & doors should be a serious concern for all home and business owners. The builder-grade windows used in many homes built during the 1970s, ‘80s and beyond were cheaply made and affordable but did not protect your home from hurricanes or a break-in attempt.
It has been shown many times over, that once windows or doors are
blown out or broken during a storm the building sustains additional
damage and perhaps even complete destruction. A flying wind-borne object
will take out the window, allowing the full force of wind and water to
destroy the building’s inner structure and contents.
Once the wind has a way into the building the pressure my reach a point where you can lose the whole roof. Wherever you see a missing roof you will find a window or door has failed. Ordinary windows are the weakest link in home or business storm protection. Doors are the second weakest link, so years ago contractors started mounting outside doors so that they only opened out.
Gold Coast is the most recognized South Florida hurricane protection impact windows & doors installer, with over 20 years experience all over Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. In 1994 building codes in South Florida required that all builders anchor windows into the building substrate. This became the statewide requirement by 2001. Those windows weren’t going anywhere.
Next the inherent weakness of pane glass had to be addressed. Wind-borne debris or a determined thief remained the only serious challenges. Hurricane protection experts decided to borrow technology from the makers of automotive glass windows, by laminating glass plates to a super strong flexible inner membrane.
We now have a product tougher than any before it. The Florida hurricane protection specialists at Gold Coast only install impact doors and windows that meet or exceed Miami-Dade protocols, which are the toughest such testing regimes in the nation.
