Hurricane Panels are the economy storm protection system offering excellent hurricane protection at a low cost. Tracks make for an easier installation when the time comes and are available in four colors white, ivory, beige, and bronze. Direct Mount installation offers your home a look without shutters. Hurricane Panels entitle the homeowner to a significant discount on their homeowners insurance. Discounts will vary, check with your provider. All of our hurricane panels are Miami-Dade or Florida Building Code approved.
Steel Hurricane Panels
They give you the most hurricane protection at the lowest cost. They stack compactly on top of one another for easy storage. Two story homes should not have panels on their second floor. Installing hurricane panels from your roof or ladder can be very dangerous. Accordion shutters are a great alternative.
Aluminum Hurricane Panels
They are the best option if you wish to save money and have an easy installation before a hurricane. The panels are very lightweight and easy to handle. Because they are aluminum they can also be stored outdoors with a protective covering if need be. They are the most popular type of hurricane protection because of their easy installation and their low cost.
Can I use Plywood?
Evidence from previous hurricane has shown that plywood boards not properly installed used for protection became flying missiles as they blew away creating added hazards. Broken windows exposed homes to internal pressurization causing roofs to explode and walls to collapse. Properly installed, Miami-Dade County approved hurricane shutters remain strongly secure and cannot be pulled away from window frames and doors during a storm.
We can install hurricane shutters in most any opening. This opening needed some custom work. As you can see the panels were cut on the sides to fit the opening to building code specification. With over 35 years’ experience, you can be assured we use the best material and you’ll have expert installation.
All of our hurricane panels will be clearly marked for your convenience. You will be provided with extra hardware and any removable tracks will also be clearly marked. Once the hurricane has passed be sure to remove your panels as soon as possible.
