Is a window really this strong?
I just saw an ad on television for a local window installer. The guy put a double hung window on two blocks and then stood on the glass.

Is that really possible with a normal window? He didn't give any reason that his was better than anyone else's and I don't find an explanation on his website, so I presume it must work with all windows.

Tempered glass? Yes.

That is why the windows next to the driveway at my house are tempered....least a basketball make unwanted entry.

As long as you are standing on strategically chosen areas, you can do that with pretty much any window. I've even seen it done on the $189 variety.
