Aluminum Storm Panels for Sliding Glass Doors

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

     In regions that are susceptible to severe weather conditions, installing hurricane shutters is an important safety precaution. If you live along the southern U.S. coast or in the Caribbean, installing hurricane shutters on your home or business is a must. Our aluminum storm Panels have rock-solid durability and are easy to set-up – which makes our aluminum storm panels an absolute necessity when storms and hurricanes threaten the safety of your loved ones and property.

     Our aluminum storm panels come in a variety of standard sizes but can be custom designed to fit any window, large opening, balcony or sliding glass doors. Our aluminum storm panels feature an easy-to-use track system for faster set-up. Each panel slides effortlessly into an upper and lower track, then are secured with washer-based wing nuts. If your home or business has sliding glass doors, you should most definitely consider impact resistant aluminum storm panels for this very vulnerable opening.   

What are Storm Panels?

     Storm panels are solid, removable installations that shield your windows, glass sliding doors and other openings when severe storms roll through. They are available in heavy extruded aluminum or clear polycarbonate panels. Once the danger has passed, you can remove the storm panels and store them out of the way until the next storm warning arises.

     These shutters are engineered with a compact design that allows for convenient, space-saving storage in your garage or shed. Approximately 10 aluminum storm panels stacks to just 1 inch. Hurricane shutters are used to alleviate home or business structures from damaging natural disasters and are a good choice for your storm protection needs.

Benefits of Storm Panels as Hurricane Shutters:

  •   *  Increases the safety of your home during severe storms
  •   *  Protects your home from strong winds and flying storm debris that can shatter your sliding glass doors and other openings.
  •   *  Prevents injury
  •   *  Economical when compared to other shutters types
  •   *  Can be installed vertically or horizontally
  •   *  Quick Set-up
  •   *  Increases the market value of your home
  •   *  Provides peace of mind when a storm is furiously thrashing outside.

     Removable aluminum storm panels provide the most cost-effective storm protection. They can withstand violent winds, rain, and the impact from debris thrown about during a tropical storm, tornado or hurricane. Because sliding glass doors have such a large expanse of glass, they are particularly dangerous during a severe storm if they are not shielded properly.

     During a storm, should a heavy tree branch or roof tile become airborne and slam into your sliders, dangerous shards of glass could be sent soaring through your home. Don’t take a chance, protect your glass sliding doors in the best way possible. Aluminum storm shutters are an affordable option that can withstand forcible impact during a storm.

Our affordable aluminum panels are made to order and are built to fit any opening in your home or commercial property. They will easily secure your entire house in under an hour.      

     We use only the highest quality materials to construct our shutters and because we manufacture them ourselves, we can pass along the savings to our customers.  All our storm shutters are tested and exceed the Florida and International Building Codes and Miami-Dade protocols.

Why are storm panels a good choice for homeowners?

Friday, July 12th, 2019

Everyone should live by the phrase “work smarter, not harder”. There are many options when it comes to protecting your windows and home from hurricane force winds, such as placing tape on the glass to prevent it from shattering, nailing plywood to your home, or even placing furniture against the windows. Those strategies may provide minor protection to you home, but they are not a fool-proof plan and are often just a waste of time and effort.

Hurricane force winds can blow up to 100mph or more! Tape or even cheap plywood would stand no chance against debris being hurled at your glass windows at over 100mph. Nailing plywood to your walls is labor-intensive, damages your home and is a big eyesore to your family and neighbors.  Replacing plywood every year can cost a pretty penny. Trying to save the wood can be storage challenge and will run the risk of growing mold which will weaken the wood’s structural integrity. And then there are the bugs. Termites love wood!
