If you have lived in Florida for any length of time, then you are used to seeing hurricane shutters on people’s homes, but hurricane fabric is often overlooked. So we, at Brevard Shutter, wanted to share some information with you – in case it might be the right fit for your hurricane protection needs.
Fabric for Hurricane Protection?
We realize that when you think of hurricane protection, fabric is not the first thing that comes to your mind! This newest form of hurricane protection system has been around for about two decades now. This awesome fabric is rated for winds of 275 miles per hour which would allow it to easily withstand a Category 5 hurricane! So, while fabric might not be the first thing you think of for hurricane protection, we bet that you are rethinking that now!
What Makes Hurricane Fabric Better Than Shutters?
Let us first say that we sell a wide variety of hurricane shutters, along with the hurricane fabric, known by its brand name of Armor Screen. All are effective protection against hurricanes. But, Armor Screen does have some added benefits.
One of the unique features of Armor Screen is its versatility. It can be installed in a variety of ways. You may think you have an odd door or window or strange house shape that would make it impossible, but that’s the perfect situation for Armor Screen.
Another excellent feature of Armor Screen that you can only get with some shutters is visibility! Because it’s technically a screen, it allows light through, so you don’t feel like you are in a cave all day during the storm.
Is Armor Screen Easy to Use?
The makers of Armor Screen designed it with multiple deployments, so you can choose the system that works best for your home as well as your physical abilities when deploying your hurricane protection system.
They offer a roll-up system, a buckle and strap system, and a track system. You can come to our showroom located in Melbourne to try out the different systems, as well as the wide variety of hurricane shutters we offer. Our knowledgeable staff can help you decide which system is best for you!
