Questions & Answers

DO THESE MEET DADE COUNTY APPROVAL?

Asked by: MIKE
@BigPapa... If folks don't know where Dade County is, then they should NOT, repeat NOT, be doing a DIY project for their storm shutters. Having said that, Dade County is where Miami Florida is. The Dade county standards are what all homes must meet for insurance to pay off. In other words, if you try to get wind mitigation credits for your insurance, they will not give them to you and charge you more for your insurance if the products used are not Dade County approved. In some cases, the insurance companies will not even pay the claim if the product is not approved.

How does AstroGuard attach to house

How does AstroGuard attach to house
Asked by: GW
The Astroguard manufacturer also sells brackets, screws, anchors and even the drill bit to mount the Astroguard. You must use the mounting brackets sold by Astroguard but not the anchors. Mounting on wood surfaces is of course is easier than masonary surfaces. Once the anchors around the perimeter are in place the Astroguard can be mounted in a few minutes with a screwdriver. The Astroguard can be folded and stored until needed in small bags unlike plywood or metal shutters.

Keep light out?

Do these shutters help keep the light out?
Asked by: Tina
These are translucent. You can not see through them but they do let some light in. You do not get the cave effect of plywood or metal shutters.

72 in. x 132 in. Panel of Hybrid Hurricane Fabric that Replaces Traditional Storm Shutters, Panels and Screens is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.

There are several that show durability as well as installation instructions. Will it work as advertised? Only a hurricane can prove or disprove that. I hope that I never have to find out. I am 70 years old and plywood to cover a 4 X 9 foot window is too much for me to handle. The few pounds of Astroguard is very manageable and I can easily install it by myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The one star review is fatally flawed The "pro" reviewer correctly points out that the stretch factor of a fabric panel may result in the window glass being broken if a large or heavy object hits the fabric shutter, especially on a larger opening. However he incorrectly states that the resulting "pressure" from the broken glass window will blow your house apart. He forgets that the fabric is still covering the window opening. There is therefore, very little "pressure" entering the house. Stand in a screened porch on a windy day and you will note that very little of the wind pressure actually passes through the screen. With this closely woven fabric almost no hurricane force wind will pass through it. If this wasn't the case, you can bet it would never receive Florida code approval. I suspect the "pro" with the one star review installs hard shutters of some kind. Hard shutters may be a tad better, but chances are you will not bother to put them up if they're heavy and/or sharp and they won't do you any good in the garage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent storm protection solution First I am a registered engineer, so, I have researched this product compared to everything on the market. I have installed and compared accordion storm shutters, and also the Astro Guard product. First the fabric seems a little thin for puncture resistance, but, appears strong in tensile. The cost is high considering it is a DIY project. The costs I compared are $129 (for everything needed) for the Astroguard and $290 for a manufactured accordion shutter for the same size window that I used. Wind tests showed the impact resistance of the fabric compared to the other options (plywood, aluminum panels, shutters, etc), and it performed well. The fabric must be stretched tightly so the flying debris won't deflect the fabric and still hit the window glass. It works best on a recessed window (like for a CMU block wall). A flush mounted window won't be helped by this material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! I purchased this for my house in Florida to save on insurance. I got my A rating and saved 19% off my yearly homeowners insurance. Very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We bought this for a window that needed protection for insurance. I wish I had done this for the whole house! A salesman explained that hurricane protection does not need to protect the glass, it has to keep wind from pressurizing the house. He also said if it breaks the glass, as all shutters can, it still keeps winds and debris out...Love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont waste your money We bought this stuff last year I installed it and did everything according to the specs. You can push the astroguard all the way to the window, if I punched it I would smash the window. This stuff only prevent debris from entering home not protection from objects smashing out your window. If you get a storm and you have no window all the pressures will tear your house apart! Complete garbage!
