Coastal residents must frequently prepare their homes and businesses for hurricane conditions. Homeowners often focus on shielding windows from airborne projectiles. Many people cover the glass with plywood, but strong winds sometimes pull the boards loose. The National Hurricane Center has warned the public not to put tape on glass; it can make the situation more dangerous by holding shards together.
An increasingly popular alternative is to install hurricane impact windows. This product offers an effective way to minimize water damage and protect people from shards of glass. The windows contain layers of plastic and glass or only plastic. They cost less than they did in the past, according to CBS Local. Insurers often grant discounts to homeowners who buy them. Such windows can also prevent burglaries.
"Leading Edge" will soon release an informational TV segment devoted to hurricane impact windows. Host Jimmy Johnson will introduce a segment that will provide a brief overview of window protection in storms, outline the benefits of this building component and explain how it works. The segment will also thoroughly evaluate the hurricane impact window's ability to protect people, buildings and goods from harsh weather conditions.
"Leading Edge" regularly produces educational content about a variety of interesting subjects, ranging from financial literacy to the environment. It directly distributes programs to specific Public Television stations, and has no relation to PBS. Every segment contains accurate, up-to-date facts.
