  1. Hi,

    Impact resistant doors and windows can provide assurance and a layer of added protection to homeowners. Impact resistant doors and windows are great for insulating noise. You may live near a busy street, airport, train line, or have noisy neighbors. Alternatively, you may have a house full of kids and do not want to disturb those who live adjacent to your home. With the installation of the windows and doors, inside noise will not escape and vice versa. Thanks...
