FAQs - Impact Resistant Windows

Premium quality aluminium windows and sliding glass doors from industry leading manufacturers ‘Cortizo’ provide high levels of insulation, security and the stylish looks of an ultra slim frame.

What’s more, aluminium is a completely recyclable material.

Specially designed for Bauhu Homes for use in high velocity wind regions aluminium windows and sliding doors maximise light transmission whilst controlling solar gain. Robust frame profiles are airtight and lockable sliding systems seal all openings. Our thin frame aluminium sliding glass doors are specially made with stainless steel reinforcing bars built into the frame profiles providing additional strength and security.

  • Air permeability

  • Water tightness

  • Wind resistance

  • Insulation

  • Security

Coupled with industry leading advanced architectural glass our window systems offer the lowest possible profile sizes whilst retaining the wind load resistance required by code. Our laminated glass significantly improves a window’s ability to withstand breakage, adds colour and sound control, provides optimum security and meets building codes in high velocity wind regions.

  • 4+2+4 Laminated outer glass layer for impact protection

  • 16mm argon filled inter pane cavity for maximum insulation

  • 6 mm SNX low E solar control glass interior pane for heat control.

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that is made by sandwiching a layer of plastic or polymer between two layers of glass. The plastic layer, known as the interlayer, is typically made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). The interlayer holds the glass layers together when the glass is broken, preventing the glass from shattering into small, sharp pieces. This makes laminated glass a safer option for use in buildings, vehicles, and other applications where the risk of injury from broken glass is a concern.

There are several benefits to using laminated glass. In addition to its safety features, laminated glass is also highly resistant to wind and weather, making it a good choice for use in exterior applications. It is also effective at blocking noise and UV light, and can be used in a variety of colors and patterns to add decorative elements to a building or vehicle.

Laminated glass is used in applications where safety and security are a concern, such as in windows, storefronts, and skylights. It is also commonly used in hurricane-prone areas, as it is able to withstand strong winds and flying debris.
