  • Economical: Less than most approved alternatives

  • Versatile: 7 standard sizes or may be ordered cut to your requirements

Your Home is probably your BIGGEST investment! DO something to help protect it from the ravages of a hurricane!

Let's be honest! You're not REALLY going to install plywood storm panels as a hurricane approaches, are you? Maybe you already realize that plywood provides only minimal hurricane protection (and isn't approved for use in Miami-Dade county because it fails the 34MPH large missile impact test). Maybe you don't even have it and it won't be available when you need it. Maybe you don't have anyone who can hold up a 50 to 75 pound piece of plywood while you drill the holes. Maybe you'll be too busy getting your valuables packed. But, MAYBE, if you had lightweight, translucent, 5/8" structured polycarbonate storm panels (and didn't have to spend all day and practically kill yourself putting them up), you might actually USE them to protect your home.

The next hurricane season will be here before you know it. NOW is the time to prepare! Don't wait until it's too late and don't make the mistake of assuming your insurance company will effortlessly restore your damaged home. Just because you have insurance doesn't mean you're protected! In fact, it is conceivable that someday insurance companies won't offer wind damage coverage in the coastal states, at any price, unless the homeowner has (and uses) some type of approved storm panels to reduce storm damage.
