For coastal residents, the increasing threat of intense hurricane seasons demands greater preparation and substantial protection.
Damage caused to glass doors and windows from wayward debris during hurricanes is common, and these calamitous events can have a profound impact on the overall structural integrity of homes. A breach in a window opening can lead to a monumental pressure increase inside the home, that at worst can lift off the roof and push out the walls.
Cardinal’s Sea-Storm® is a reinforced defensive glazing that provides impressive resistance to hurricane winds.
Enhanced Protection Against Windborne Debris
Unlike annealed and tempered varieties, Sea-Storm remains structurally sound when damaged by blunt force and puncture impacts. The robust interlayer provides stability when panes are damaged, allowing for the product to stay intact and your home habitable.
Sea-Storm passes the most rigorous county building codes designed for hurricane-prone areas. It also contributes to being compliant with the TAS 201, TAS 203, ASTM E1886, and ASTM E1996 testing protocols.

When a building is breached through a broken window, wind can enter the building and create a sudden pressure increase that lifts the roof and pushes the walls outward, causing the building to collapse.
Sea-Storm impact-rated laminated glass helps preserve the building envelope, minimizing the damage.
