Our certified and approved hurricane panels come in aluminum and clear polycarbonate made with GE Lexan. They have a 2 inch (front to back) profile, and at about 9 panels per inch, they stack into each other for easy and convenient storage. Each panel has 3 holes punched into the top and bottom 6 inches on center and can be used to secure ALL home openings. Both the aluminum and clear panels can be combined on the same opening, as well. This allows light to come in through the secured opening.
Features & Benefits
- The panel being installed is first positioned so that it overlaps any previously installed panel at that opening. This interlocks the panels to insure maximum strength and that neither wind nor debris will enter the opening.
- The top edge of the panel is then slid into the top H-header track. The bottom edge of the panel then aligns with the bottom studded track. The studded track bolts will then align with the 3 panel holes (located at the bottom of each panel).
- The last step is to lock each panel to the bottom track by means of wing nuts screwed onto the protruding bolts.
These panels can also be direct mounted (without tracks) by using anchors and bolts.
