Protect your home with Non Impact Windows & Shields!

DuraShield Non Impact Windows

Some homeowners select the energy efficiency, style and simplicity of DuraShield Non Impact Windows if they do live in a windborne debris designated zone and put on hurricane shields if and when they are needed. For these homeowners, we offer a DuraShield V Non Impact Windows. The DuraShield V Non Impact Windows do not have the special laminated layer between the 2nd and 3rd layer of glass.

DuraShield Non Impact Windows are dual pane only. They can only be installed in non windborne debris zones without shields. If your home is in a windborne debris zone then they must be purchased with Florida approved shields to cover the openings during Florida’s violent storms. Our Shields are Florida Product Code certified to protect openings during a storm.

DuraShield Non Impact Windows

DuraShield Shields

Our Hurricane Shields are Florida Product Approved to be used with non impact windows. They are designed to be deployed before a hurricane approaches and then removed.

The screens can be easily seen through. This eliminates the claustrophobic feeling one will have compared to steel shutters which do not allow you to see out and light to enter. If you decide to stay in your home during a storm, you won’t have to subject yourself to “cave-like” conditions. Being totally isolated within the walls of your home with shut­ters rattling, winds howling and debris crashing can be absolutely nerve racking.

The shields are thermally bound with reinforcement to both sides of the screen. This type of reinforcement elim­inates fraying of edges. Fraying will occur even with heat cut edges when the wind buffets the screen during a wind event. This thick reinforcement allows grommets to be set perfectly, eliminating tear out conditions that occur in other products. This edging is heat sealed and not sewn, it does not experience the puckering of weathered polyester thread; this allows them to hold it size true, year after year.

The brackets are made from 1/8 inch stainless steel and will slide on and off without removing the screws. This allows the product to be applied and removed quickly. They are designed to place an even load during positive and negative winds. This evens the load, reducing the damage caused by anchors pulling from the wall. Some products attachments use eyebolts that extend from the wall; this causes a lever action increasing the amount of pressure placed on the an­chor exponentially.

Our hurricane shields are installed per industry standard according to structure and facade type. HPA uses only the highest quality hurricane fasteners to include male and female anchors, F track / H track and sidewalk bolts.

See Through Design

If you decide to stay in your home during a storm, don’t subject yourself to cave-like conditions. Being totally isolated within the walls of your house with shutters rattling, winds howling and debris crashing can be absolutely nerve racking. Not having the ability to see what is happening outside your home can cause a claustrophobic reaction.
Not a problem with our screens!

Opening Protection

The goal of all Hurricane shutters is to protect the structure’s integrity. If an opening is compromised the risk of roof failure increases. The larger the exposed opening, the greater the risk. If your roof is blown off, it is highly likely personal injury or death will occur. Even if one comes out personally uninjuired, one will be left homeless, and damage can take months to repair — if not significantly longer.

Re-enforced Edging

Reinforced Edging

The shields are thermally bound with reinforcement to both sides of the screen. This type of reinforcement eliminates fraying of edges. Fraying will occur even with heat-cut edges when the wind buffets the screen during a wind event.

Say NO! to Rigid Hurricane Shutters

Rigid Hurricane Shutters have a greater chance of catastrophic failure (blowing off the structure) from impact than non-rigid hurricane shutters. This is because the energy of an impact is directly tranfered to the mounting anchors, like a hammer pulling a nail out of a wall. As the distance between the mounting anchors increases the pressure to the anchors exponentially increases.

Easier to put up compared to metal shutters!
