Q:Is this for interior or exterior use? Who installs it?
by|Jun 3, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hurricane Fabric Panels, like all protective devices are installed on exterior surfaces of structures. Home Depot products are intended for DIY installation, however, some stores will recommend Installers. Alternatively, you can have a qualified Handyman perform the installation.

      Q:I’m trying to install the deluxe anchors that go with the Hurricane fabric but my drill stops once I hit metal. I believe I am hitting the metal lintel. How can I anchor this fabric? I have limited clearance above my doors.

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Without knowing what your substrate is, it is hard to know what is going on. You may be hitting rebar, although you indicate you have a metal lintel. Remember that you can anchor the panel top and bottom OR side to side. Perhaps changing to left and right side attachments will solve the problem.

        Q:What sort of separation do you need between the fabric and a window to allow the fabric to flex without breaking the window during an impact?
        by|May 22, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Glass separation is only required in the "High Velocity Wind Zone (HVHZ)". That includes only Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Remember that the essence of Storm Protection is to seal the building envelope to prevent pressure differentials from tearing off your roof. Should glass break behind a panel, the opening will remain sealed. For masonry structures, setback is usually 3.5-4", which is sufficient to prevent glass breakage. On wood frame structures, the panel will often be right on the glass surface. The Miami Dade NOA includes separation specifications.

          This material and fasteners worked quite well for me. I was required to add something like this to my house to obtain county approval during my inspection. Not only did it meet their requirements, it was pretty easy to install. The mounting bolts actually look kinda cool around the windows and doors when the fabric is not hung on them. I was not happy to know I had to leave permanent hardware around them but after I was done, they looked like accent pieces. An installation tip I have is about drilling holes in the material for the bolts to go through. Drilling the stuff is hard to do because it can easily get twisted up in a drill bit. After a few frustrating episodes of that, I used my soldering iron to burn holes in it. Not only was that way faster, it keeps the holes from fraying. After mounting the top two outside corners, I could also see through the material to burn holes in all the remaining bolt holes.

          Installation
          Great product. Too hard to install for average homeowner though. I recommend getting total hurricane shutters for installs

              Easrier to Install than Expected
              We purchased this fabric for our oversized sliding glass doors. If you do the preliminary work of reading the installation instructions and measuring (2 or 3 times) and adding the overlap required you should have no issues. I also drew a diagram to ensure we knew exactly what we needed to do for clip spacing when we got out the drill and screw driver. The only negative comment I have is, that one side of the fabric has an unfinished edge. I suppose if it was an issue, instructions would have been provided on how to finish the edge. And I must admit it will take a little while to get used to the bolts framing the sliders when the fabric is not in use. Other than that I am really pleased with this.

              Hurricane Fabric
              Great product- installation can be difficult though. I had to hire total hurricane shutters to finish my install and actually they enclosed my entire patio with the hurricane screen!

                Peace of Mind
                My husband insralled fabrc over our 3 panel glass sliders. We installed it two weeks ago and Deland Florida was hit with a t-storm tornado! We had 115 mph winds and debris and the fabric did the job. In prior hurricanes, we covered wirh plastic panels and foam board, but the window glass flexed. This panel keeps the direct winds at bay

                      I had the most exposed windows and doors covered in aluminum panels, very secure but it's a job you want some help with. After a couple of years of watching the new products, I went with the AstroGuard Fabric system for the other three sides of my house. I'm really glad I did. Cutting the panels to size and installing the clips isn't hard, just takes some time. I better the bit you use the easier to drill, but I have a rotary hammer drill and it didn't take much time at all. When I had installed the fabric over the large front door and sidelights, as well as a large double window near it, it only took about 20 minutes take it all down and return the sidewalk bolts into the anchors using a battery driven drill with a #3 phillips. Another interesting thing is the way the clips can be used either on a flat surface or a 90 degree wall (see pic on left side of both). Both the front door set and large window had one side of the fabric on a perpendicular wall - so much better than the aluminum panel mounts. I know that when I get up in years, I'll still be able to put up all the AstroGuard Fabric by my self in no time all around the house, but I'll need help with the aluminum panels.
