Hurricane fabric is a cost-effective alternative to traditional hurricane protection products. Hurricane fabric can protect your home from flying debris in the event of the strongest tropical storms. They are lightweight, easy to install, and allow light to enter your home in the event of a storm. They consist of a strong, lightweight layer of woven fabric that is coated with a geo-synthetic PVC material. This reinforced material is then used to cover windows and doors, providing a barrier from flying projectiles and wind-blown rain.
Fabric storm panels have many advantages over traditional plywood or metal storm shutters, including:
- Lightweight and easy to handle
- Can be put up and taken down quickly
- May fold or roll up for easy storage
- Translucent material allows light to illuminate home
