Questions & Answers

Joining two of these together

Is there a recommended product (such as an 'H' style connector) or method that can be used to easily join two of these panels together? I have a large external door that I want to cover with these panels for hurricane protection, but it is wide and tall enough to require the use of two of these panels. Thanks in advance!

I want to use these with Plylox. My window sizes are 36x48, so I would cut this panel into two panels. Will the cut edge have structural integrity to work with the plylox clips? It is difficult from the picture to see what the edge would look like.
Asked by: greginfla
They make Plylox in multiple sizes, including 5/8”.

Hello, it will be able to withstand up to 85-100 mph winds. Deflection will vary but 100 mph would be the maximum, thank you.

IMO... Home Depot saids there is a Florida Product Approval Number FL10596... BUT the install document does NOT have the FL number. The install document will not pass St. Pete Inspection... Look @ the install doc and see it is over 10 years old.... I called the engineering company... and there is a problem... Buyer Beware..!

48 in. x 72 in. Multiwall Hurricane Panel is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product/But two corners are bent :( Bought online, opened box and two of the corners were bent. It would't a big deal being that it is an amazing product except it's an expensive product. FYI: another reviewer said theirs came damage too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product While it is designed for hurricanes, I used this for a permanent "window" inside our house that allows light between an office and a staircase. HD shipped it to a nearby store for free. It was a bit damaged in shipping, but I was able to work around it. It is easy to handle and cut.

I picked these 2 panels up at the store, and the packaging was just OK, as there was some minimal damage to one end of the panels (may have been dropped, which slightly dented the ends - not an issue for me since I had to trim about 6 inches off the end of each panel along the edge that was damaged in order to fit them where I needed to install them. The panels cut easily with a jig saw, using a fine tooth blade for plastic or metal usage. The material also drills easily, as I intend to use sidewalk bolts to attach the panels to my previously installed brass lined concrete sidewalk bolt anchors. Panels are extremely light weight, clear, and appear to be very resilient to impact.
