Properties & Benefits of The Shield Hurricane Screen Shutter System
Have you seen our High Wind Hurricane Screen System?
It is a revolutionary hurricane screen that is unlike any other systems available today! It is the newest technology and designed to be used as a year round system. The screen is simply one of the strongest and most durable textiles available today. At the very heart of its superior performance is a carefully engineered aramid core.
Aramids, are lightweight materials that possess extraordinary strength and heat resistant properties and are often used in aerospace and military applications such as body armor and ballistic composites.
Most other products available today use the polypropylene material and there’s no comparison when it comes to aesthetics and year round functions of our High Wind Screen System!
In additions to the screen material, the two piece roller tube not only increases the strength of the unit but also reduces reel flex (deflection) and allows the screen material to roll up even, tight, and free of creases or bagging.
High Wind Hurricane Screen System is approved for FBC and Miami Dade.
