Safety and Security
Mother Nature is unpredictable. Hurricane forecasts seem to change minute to minute, and frustrated homeowners find themselves torn between two extremes: taking the time and effort to put storm shutters over windows that offer moderate protection but render their interior completely void of any outside light, or waiting until that final advisory and frantically juggling possible evacuation plans with nailing plywood.
Thanks to polycarbonate storm panels, the safest choice is a no-brainer. Clear panels that are Miami Dade tested for hurricane wind resistance let outside light into a residence. The lightweight product can be installed within minutes. If the hurricane trajectory changes, it’s no problem to unscrew these shutters and stack them in the garage for the next time.
For true safety and security during storm season, trust polycarbonate-based storm panels. Make sure they’re tested and approved. Get rid of the plywood – it warps and is difficult to install. Aluminum shutters can be effective, but the ease of use offered by polycarbonate makes it a fast-growing favorite.
