"BUILT IN SECURITY AND PEACE OF MIND"
Although 13mm Laminated glass may crack when impacted by a heavy object, as seen in in the above demonstrations, the interlayer will keep the glass intact under force.. A special silicone glazing process also keeps the glass from breaking away from the frame, making wind less likely to penetrate the envelope of the home and provide too much of a challenge for intruders trying to break in..
This fullfills the two main functions of high security windows:

Cost is always an important factor in upgrading to impact windows. Consumers might be surprised to find that purchasing impact windows will cost significantly less than purchasing shutters, with the added advantages of aesthetic appeal and the convenience of effortless, year round protection.
Benefits of Alcor’s impact resistant windows include:
- Security – Provides excellent protection against intruders as penetration through the “toughened” glass is virtually impossible.
- Increased noise reduction – Transfer of noise is reduced by dual or triple gasketing, and the multi chambered design of UPVC profiles.
- Energy efficiency – The interlayer of film within the glass reduces UV light and heat transfer and triple gasketing allows the window to seal tight, preventing cool air from escaping.
- Maintenance free – UPVC requires no maintenance and will not peel, fade, crack or corrode.
- Integral Insect Screens as part of the unit.
- Adds greater value to your home, over shutters and storm panels.
