Does Florida Building Code Require Impact Windows and Doors?

In response to the extensive destruction caused by Hurricane Andrew in 1992, substantial revisions were made to enhance the structural safety of buildings in Florida.
In compliance with the Florida Building Code, Impact Windows and Doors are required for areas within one mile of the coastal mean high water line (MHWL) and experiencing basic wind speeds of 110 mph or higher. Impact Windows and Doors are mandated not just along the coastal areas of Florida but also in the inland regions.
In addition, regions prone to hurricanes with wind speeds of 120mph or higher must also install impact products on their properties as a mandatory requirement to be hurricane-proof and impact resistant.
There are several window types like bay, awning, and casement windows, as well as door types like patio doors and sliding glass doors. So, consulting a professional to guide you on the best impact windows for your properties is important. Remember, investing in the right windows and doors is an investment in the safety and security of your property.
