Impact-Resistant Storm-Lite Windows Affordable Way

PENSACOLA, FLA - Before Mother Nature blows in with her full fury during the 2018 Hurricane Season, homeowners should consider replacing an older window with an impact-resistant Storm-Lite privacy window. Manufactured by Hy-Lite®, the 4' x 4' window is certified to AAMA 506-06 specifications for Hurricane Impact and Cycle Testing, and has a Design Pressure Rating of DP50.
"This durable window features a one-inch insulated unit with an annealed, laminated exterior glass to resist impact from flying debris," says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. "There's also tempered glass on the interior of each unit for enhanced safety, privacy and decorative style.
"To make this window more affordable for anyone replacing a window or building a new home, we reduced the price of the Storm-Lite window by more than 40 percent in 2017. These cost savings should hopefully entice homeowners and builders to consider this window for homes in the path of severe weather patterns."
Check Your Windows
During National Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 6 - 12, 2018), Murphy recommends that homeowners who experienced severe weather last year --- like Hurricanes Harvey, Maria and Irma --- carefully check their windows before the next hurricane season begins.
"While your windows may have done a great job protecting your home last year, it's important to evaluate each one before the start of June," says Murphy. "You can begin by checking to make sure the caulking is still in place and that the windows are fully operational.

"Make sure each unit is firmly in its frame, and that there's no 'wiggle' to the units as a result of hard-blowing winds. The very best thing to do is hire a professional to come to your home and do a comprehensive check to assure your windows and other key exterior components of your home --- such as your roof, garage door and entry doors --- are all in good shape."
Getting Ready for Hurricane Season 2018
Based in Pensacola, Fla., the Hy-Lite operations were untouched by the storms that impacted so many in 2017.
"We feel fortunate that our operations were not affected by Hurricane Irma, which came so close to us," says Murphy. "This allowed us to keep our facility running and our employees working. Part of that work was to assure we have enough Storm-Lite windows in inventory to guarantee homeowners across the country can get impact-resistant privacy windows from our dealers."
Storm-Lite windows are part of Hy-Lite's popular Bath-Lite® Series. The impact-resistant Storm-Lite silkscreened glass window brings beauty, privacy and security to an elegant window at an affordable price. The durable window is suitable for bathroom, living room and family room settings in the home.
Storm-Lite windows feature heavy-duty vinyl frames in the choice of four designer frame colors of white, tan, driftwood and bronze.
"This is a cost-effective option for a privacy window that is more imaginative than simple frosted glass or rain glass," says Murphy. "These windows provide elegance in the home without breaking the budget. They have all the terrific features of decorative glass windows while boasting a value-added price tag."
Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company, is the leading manufacturer of acrylic block, glass block and decorative glass windows. The company's privacy product options include acrylic block shutters, accent panels, radius walls, partition walls and door inserts.
