Lagoon Window Strength

New Zealand's Cat 1 for offshore requires proof of window strength for catamarans (see excerpt below). Clearly there are a lot of Lagoons that have sailed offshore and met their countries regulations. Including the ARC. The windows appear very thick and strong and rebated so a wave would press them against the hull and not pop them out.

Would someone please help me with any evidence that they may have received from Lagoon or how they met the ARC or offshore requirements to prove the window strength in their Lagoon yacht? This would be a big help.

Thank you,
Dave

NZ Cat 1
13.12 (M) Storm coverings for exposed windows more than 1852cm² (2sq ft) in area shall be provided or it shall be demonstrated that the window material as installed will withstand severe blows and remain intact

May not be much of a help, but when I have sailed ARC2003 nobody asked me about windows strength.
CE certification for the Lagoons is A - meaning open ocean:
Class A yacht ( boat ) is a vessel that is built to navigate the open ocean and surpass a force 8 on the Beaufort scale and surpass waves higher that 4 meters. These yachts are constructed to be self sufficient in hostile seas.
