Hurricane Fabric



Hurrincane Fabric is quickly taking the hurricane protection industry by storm. This new-aged technology not only surpasses traditional aluminum shutters technology by leaps and bounds, but it also dominates the other polypropelene shutter competitors hands down. This unique anchoring system specially designed by the Hurricane Fabric family has reinvented the way that hurricane protection is approached. The unique military grade flex anchor allows the material to absorb impacts repititevely without causing any sort of tear or abrasions where the anchoring points are, unlike many other fabric based shutter systems currently available. The clip allows for a dynamic approach to absorbing and reflecting the impact of debris. This "bend but don't break" theory is highly used in other construction techniques such as skyscrapers swaying in the wind. Rigid, static systems do not allow for the flex needed to prevent shear forces from damaging the system, such as groumets and buckle systems utilized by other manufacturers. Those systems inflict tremendous force on a small area of the fabric, causing excessive wear and tear.



AstroGuard




AstroGuard is a resin-coated hybrid fabric that is 40% stronger than polypropylene, providing unmatched protection from hurricanes. AstroGuard provides "full envelope" protection of your home or commercial property, deflecting hurricane-force winds and preventing pressurization of the home. This pressurization is what causes roof lift-off during a hurricane and catastrophic damage to the home. AstroGuard weighs just ounces per square yard and gives homeowners and business owners the peace of mind knowing that their property, belongings, and families are protected.

What is AstroGuard?
AstroGuard is a resin-coated hybrid fabric that is deployed over windows, doors, lanais, porches, garages and other openings. It protects against water, wind, and projectile damage during a storm. AstroGuard weighs only eight ounces per square yard, making it a lightweight, manageable alternative to traditional metal storm panels.

How Strong is AstroGuard?
AstroGuard has passed the rigorous testing necessary to gain Florida Building Code approval (#15208). It is also approved for use in High Velocity Hurricane Zones (Dade NOA #10-0607.02) by the Dade County Building Department. With Burst Strength of well over 1,500 psi, AstroGuard easily outranks plywood, roll-downs, accordions, and other hurricane fabrics.

How Can a Fabric Protect my Home or Business?
By design, AstroGuard is a flexible, nonporous fabric that is attached to your home or commercial property with standard hardware. The difference is the revolutionary mounting clip. Unlike competitors using grommets that tear the fabric, AstroGuard’s patented mounting clip bites into the fabric without tearing it. Our system actually pull-tests hundreds of pounds higher than competitors systems.

Is it Affordable?
AstroGuard is the best value in hurricane protection in many ways. Not only is it affordable, but it also saves you money on auxiliary expenses: 1) It can reduce your homeowners’ insurance costs. 2) Its ease of deployment means you may not need to hire a handyman to put it up and take it down. 3) AstroGuard folds up neatly into its own storage bags and takes up very little space in an attic, garage, or storage unit.
