To minimize damage to your home during a hurricane, windows and doors should be boarded up with plywood or covered with approved storm shutters. However, putting up plywood or storm shutters is time consuming and may require more than one person to lift heavy panels into place. Taking the time to board up your home when a hurricane is approaching and evacuation is imminent is not always wise.

That’s where fabric storm panels come in. Fabric storm panels, also known as wind abatement screens, are touted as an effective alternative to traditional plywood or shutters.
