Protecting your home in the Lowcountry from driving hurricane winds, rain, and flying debris doesn’t have to break the bank— nor does it have to take up garage or storage space, like clunky plywood panels or more costly shutter systems do.
If you are looking for a hurricane protection solution that is budget-friendly and easy to store when not in use, fabric hurricane panels may be the best choice for you.
What are Fabric Storm Panels?
Fabric-Shield™ Storm Panels (also known as wind abatement screens) are a highly-effective alternative to steel or aluminum hurricane panels. These PVC coated woven fabric panels are tested to block wind, rain and storm-driven projectiles. Yet Fabric-Shield™ panels are easy to handle and easy to store. These fabric panel systems attach to the outside of windows, porches, doors – virtually any open space that you would like to protect from potential damage from wind and flying debris. Fabric-Shield Storm Panels are also translucent allowing diffused light to enter so you won’t feel trapped in darkness.
Fabric-Shield™ Storm Panels installed and sold by ARMOR are:
- Custom sized to fit any window and door openings in your home
- Made from a geo-synthetic, PVC coated fabric or Kevlar
- Translucent, allowing diffused natural light to enter the home
- The lightweight fabric makes it easy to put up and take down
- Can be stored rolled up, laid flat, or hung vertically
- Simple grommets and bolts are used to secure fabric panels to windows
Can Fabric Panels REALLY Protect Against a Hurricane?
You might find it hard to believe that fabric can provide sufficient protection against storm debris hurtling at over 100 miles per hour, but coverings are available that meet or exceed state building codes in North & South Carolina as well as International Building Code compliant, TDI approval ASTM – E-1886, E-1996 for hurricane protection.
