There are many misconceptions about Hurricane Screens and how they are intended to be used. Learn the facts so you can choose the best product for your home!

 

Rolldown hurricane screens are ideal for sun shade... False.

Using them for year round sun shade will deteriorate the screen and greatly reduces its ability to offer hurricane protection. This product is not meant to be exposed to UV rays. *Ask about the warranty.

 

Hurricane screen offers protection against intruders... False.

Rolldown screens can be cut and torn away allowing intruders into your home. Also, screens manually installed by owners can just as easily be taken down by intruders.

 

Hurricane Screens can be left up year round... False.

Hurricane screens are only intended to be used for short periods before, during and after a storm.

 

Hurricane screens that contain kevlar are bullet proof... False.

There are several companies that are offering hurricane protection products with kevlar in them but they have not been tested or designed to be bullet resistant or bullet proof. In many cases these products are only reinforced with kevlar where they attach to your home.
