Attention Parents: Why You Should Consider Impact Windows


Attention Parents: Why You Should Consider Impact Windows

It’s safe to say that no one values home protection quite as much as parents. From toddlers to teenagers, there are hazards that any good parent wants their children to avoid. We at Castle understand. Below we’ve compiled a few important ways in which our quality products can help protect your little ones and big ones, too.


Regardless of your child’s age, a reality of having kids in the house is that stuff gets broken, and broken things can lead to injury. Is it possible to make it through the duration of parenthood without a window getting busted? Maybe. But it isn’t likely. Unless of course you have impact windows. Able to withstand hurricane force winds, our impact glass can take whatever your kids can throw at it… literally! And in the rare event that an impact window does break, it will not shatter. Check that off your list of things to worry about as a parent.



A break-in is a terrifying thing, even more so if you have children. One of the greatest benefits of impact windows is that they are an excellent security feature. When locked, they are virtually impassable. Since burglars rely on speed in entering a home, the extra strength, effort, and time required to break through impact glass is an excellent deterrent. If a break-in is attempted but unsuccessful, potential robbers almost always simply run away. You and your little ones can sleep sound at night knowing the boogymen will leave your house alone.



Another unavoidable reality of having kids. Depending on your child’s age, you’ll either want to keep the noise in or out. Do you have a newborn or a toddler who really needs to nap? Impact glass creates a better barrier against outside noise pollution so your babies (and maybe even you!) can enjoy a quiet rest. Need some peace and quiet while the kids play a rowdy game? Send them out to the backyard and keep the noise where it belongs. Is your teenager’s band using your home to practice? Impact windows can help keep their jams from disturbing the neighbors.


Inclement Weather

As a Florida resident, you know how unpredictable the weather can be. Tropical storms can often develop faster than you have time to prepare. With kids, you probably have even more on your hurricane preparation list than most. With impact windows and doors, however, your home’s entrances are protected at all times, leaving you more time for making sure your family is safe and ready. (For help preparing your family for severe weather, see our posts, Hurricane Safety For Kids and Hurricane Readiness: How To Create A Plan Of Action For Your Family).
