Protection from hurricane and burglar
Impact glass doors offer protection from hurricanes and burglars. In addition installing impact doors eliminate the need to install hurricane panels, accordions, and other shielding devices in your home or office to comply with the statutory norms and building codes.
Decrease energy consumption
All types of impact glass have high-performance Low-E coating, which decreases heat loss to keep the inside of your home or office comfortable that ultimately decrease your electricity bill. A recent research study has discovered that storm doors with impact glass can decrease yearly energy consumption by nearly 40%. Most impact glass doors come with Solar Heat Gain Coefficient reduction. It means you will start getting benefits instantly once you have installed these doors.
Protection from UV light
Ultraviolet light is very harmful to skin and can cause several skin-related diseases. The light can also damage your furniture, household items, and artwork. Impact doors have Low-E glass coating and double glazing that decreases the harmful effects of ultraviolet light.
Impact doors of reputed manufacturers can easily hold up the strict building codes of your city or state. For instance, Doralum is the leading manufacturer of impact doors and manufacture our doors in accordance with Miami-Dade County codes. These doors have a tear-resistant inner layer which is inserted between the two glass panes to build a sturdy glass unit. When debris or projectiles hit the doors, their outside layer may break, but the tear-resistant layer prevents their entry inside the home or office.
Decrease outside noise
Another great benefit of installing impact doors is the reduction in outside noise. These doors are ideal for houses and workplaces that are close to playgrounds, highways, airports, or any other noisy area. Even if you have children in your neighbors, then these impact doors will prevent the disturbing noise from coming inside.
Many insurance companies have recognized the benefit of impact glass doors against storm protection. This is why these companies offer a discount on premiums for all those property owners who have installed impact doors.

Thanks for the interesting article about impact glass doors. I didn’t know that these glass doors can keep the inside of your home comfortable because of the coating it has. I’m interested to learn if other types of glass doors would have different coatings or if it’s only impact glass.

It’s great to learn that impact glass doors can protect against a hurricane. My wife and I are wanting to prepare for any future hurricanes. I’ll let her know that we should get a better door to protect our home.

That’s good to know that impact glass would be good for louder areas. I feel like that would be nice since I live on a busy street. I’ll have to keep that in mind if I decide to replace my current entry door on my house.

I’m having a new home built, but I just found out from a new neighbor that there are a lot of storms in the area. It makes sense that I would want to ensure that my doors and windows are sturdy! I’ll be sure to have very strong materials used for them. That way, I can ensure that they withstand the winds and any flying objects.

My wife and I are having a new home built this year and we want to install high-impact doors in case of big storms. That’s a good point about making sure the doors are sturdy and how they reduce sound for louder areas. I’ll be sure to find some quality doors that can help lower my insurance premium as well.
