Their triple wall construction gives them the strength they need to stand up to the strongest winds while being lightweight and easy to install using common tools around the home. 2-side UV coating gives them extended weather ability even in the sunniest of areas.

Answer: 
The Home Depot page for these Hurricane shutters has a link with installation instructions. They're very detailed indicating how far the spacing has to be for the fasteners, bracketing that you can use etc.

Answer: 
Bobbie,
Depends on your application. Typically, I secure them over the top of the window opening, cut about six inches overhang. I sink anchors into the brick about ten inch spacing, and have helper hold the panel in place while I sight through the panel and drill holes to match the anchor locations. This does make each panel specific to a window...label them! Home Depot stocks stainless anchors and Read More
Bobbie,
Depends on your application. Typically, I secure them over the top of the window opening, cut about six inches overhang. I sink anchors into the brick about ten inch spacing, and have helper hold the panel in place while I sight through the panel and drill holes to match the anchor locations. This does make each panel specific to a window...label them! Home Depot stocks stainless anchors and matching flat head panel anchor screws...the flat heads are about the size of a quarter and hold the panels very well, much in the same way plywood or OSB panels are done. I have heard some people use the ply lock fasteners that hold the panels inside the window opening, but I have not tried that.
Drilling the anchors is a chore...best done with a hammer drill, but is super strong and permanent. Once in, the panels mount very quickly (a full sheet is under 20 lbs) and I use a cordless drill to spin the bolts. Did my whole house, about 10 panels, in about an hour in no hurry. WAY easier than plywood or OSB, and last forever...the wood products are only good for one storm as they absorb the rain water, swell and warp.
Good luck! Read Less

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Protects my windows from hurricanes I needed to cover the windows on my beachfront cottage to protect them from storms and hurricanes. I also wanted a light weight, somewhat transparent, easy to work with solution. The cut to size covers weigh only about 5 lbs each, let light in, block clear vision into the vacant house, but allow some vision out through the windows. They are easy to put up and take down and store. They are a little expensive but a great solution! October 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product very nice but damaged this is very cool stuff. I bought it to replace the glass on the inside of my skylights. It cuts very easily with a jig saw. I didn't notice until just before installation when I took off the protective plastic there was a deformity in one of the panels. Its not so bad but a contractor would have had to replace it. Tech Tip: after cutting a lot of the dust gets into the channels. A leaf blower took care of the problem. November 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product I have used this product before but this was the first time to buy thru Home Depot and have it shipped. Finding, ordering and having it shipped couldn't have been any easier! Home Depot made it easy and the Polycarbonate is an excellent product. I used it to enclose my car port and create a greenhouse. Couldn't be happier. October 4, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not what it appeared to be, very disapointed. I ordered this as an online only product. My mistake, the description and picture weren't even close. May 27, 2012
