minimal windows® 4+
can your minimal windows® 4+ handle a hurricane?
A hurricane is a tropical storm that has taken a cyclonic form and has reached wind speeds of 74mph or higher. Strong hurricane windows can cause moderate to severe damage to any surrounding buildings and can also cause flooding in coastal areas.
Testing windows and doors for hurricane resistance means making sure that they will be able to withstand strong winds as well as making sure that the doors are manufactured correctly to prevent any water leaking through the frames. Preventing a water leak means less damage to the home during a hurricane or coastal storm.
