Unbreakbale "glass" door for porch?
Is there such thing?
We have a long patio/porch on the back of the house. We never use it as it's either too hot or too cold/windy outside, with very few days in-between.
I want to close the patio without changing the looks. A wall of sliding glass doors would be perfect and will make the space very useable.
However, that side of the house is very windy and is facing the woods. With frequent strong winds, the patio gets hit by all sorts of debris, including small tree branches.
Is there any way to protect the glass or make the outer pane of something (relatively) unbreakable?
I know that several window companies offer storm windows (and doors?) but they are cost-prohibitive at the moment. Plus, I don't think they'd work because - unlike one window or one door - the exposed area is too large.
I have tried to Google and saw some info on using Lexan and some companies offering it.
But I don't know anything about those companies and don't even know if it is a good idea.
