Impact windows are manufactured and rigorously tested to withstand Category 5 wind conditions, which are defined by wind speeds of at least 137 knots (or 158 mph). Impact windows are also resistant to the blunt force impact of flying debris that gets hurled about violently during such massive storms. Aside from protecting your home and family from storms, impact windows also provide security against burglars, because they are so incredibly difficult to break into. To put it simply, one could repeatedly bang on an impact window with a sledge hammer, and it would not easily break.
