Can Hurricane Windows Break?

For a hurricane window to break, it would need to be placed under extreme conditions for an extended period of time. With enough of an impact, you may see the hurricane window break, however, it absolutely cannot be penetrated.

Impact windows are made up of multiple layers that are combined together to form a defensive barrier against heavy impacts ensuring that it never completely collapses against the elements.

Installation Is Key

It doesn’t matter how strong a hurricane window is, without proper installation it doesn’t stand a chance against high-impact scenarios.
