Laminated glass windows—often referred to as impact resistant or hurricane windows—offer panes of glass laminated in or separated by a shatter resistant material. These windows provide exceptional performance against flying debris—keeping you and your family safe even when the weather is at its worst.
In addition to protecting from high winds and flying debris, laminated glass windows provide improved protection from home invasion. While traditional glass windows can easily be broken, unlocked, and opened, laminated glass windows are much harder to break.
At Quality Window & Door, we carry impact resistant windows from some of the industry’s leading window manufacturers. Visit one of our window and door showrooms to learn more or contact us today to schedule a free in-home consultation.

Do I Need Laminated Glass Windows in The Mid-Atlantic?
Although hurricanes and tornadoes are rare in the Mid-Atlantic, we are not immune from them. As we saw in 2012 with Hurricane Sandy and 2011 with Hurricane Irene, the greater Washington, DC and Baltimore areas can feel the effects of severe weather.
Building codes in Washington, DC and inland Maryland do not require impact resistant laminated glass windows, but some coastal communities in eastern Maryland may.
Even if you do not live in an area where weather necessitates impact resistant windows, they are a good way to add extra protection from home invasion. They may even qualify you for lower insurance premiums!
