Features & Information

Most people think of a window’s function as simply to allow light and air into the home. But when you think about it, a window in a Hurricane or Tornado area home has a rather complicated job: it must allow the sun’s light to pass through, but not the sun’s heat. It must keep cool conditioned air inside, but not allow condensation to form on the surface of the glass. It must not allow hot, humid outside air to leak into the home in summer, nor allow warm inside air to leak out of the house in winter. And as a result of Hurricane Andrew, it’s now realized that windows are a key point of entry for wind, rain and wind-borne debris. The Florida Building Code (FBC) requires windows to be impact-resistant or protected if located within one mile of the coast where the wind speed is 110 mph or greater. (Of course, even if your home is not located in this area, this may be a good idea.) As you can see, a window is a complex system, and it’s more than just glazing (glass): it also includes the frame sash and any operable elements as well. With the improvements in window technologies, it is now possible to buy impact-resistant and/or energy-efficient windows for your home. The FBC prescribes performance and construction requirements for exterior windows and glass doors installed in wall systems. Testing by an approved testing laboratory is required, and approved labels must identify the manufacturer, performance characteristics and approved product certification agency, testing laboratory, evaluation entity or Miami-Dade notice of acceptance (NOA). Note that the requirements vary depending on your location within the state.
