While I was ordering I had them use dual glazed "double strength" glass, temper it and apply E coat to help with the heat. I chose horizontal slides and removable screens. The window cases screw into the original steel window openings and I sealed them around the edges with Silkaflex 220+ urethane windshield adhesive (cleans and smooths with mineral spirits but can make a mess and is paintable).
The images you posted show as "broken" squares.
I don't think my windows are tempered though. Got them at a warehouse that sells used windows etc. The two large windows are previously owned and do not open. The two smaller windows are new, still with the stickers.
All of them are double pained.
Do you think laminating them with the hurricane film will be adequate?
Anyone please chime in as well.
