Storm Panels

Storm panels are usually made from aluminium or steel. Depending on the type of panel, they
will be fixed by means of a clip or track system for easy application. Some higher end
storm panels may use electric motors controlled by a remote for their operation. Other materials
used for storm panels may be marine plywood or polycarbonate plastics. Building code ref ASTM E1886 & E1996 are used
to determine the material used for hurricane products. The Florida Building code is similar to the IBC as regards to testing and approval.

The Miami-Dade County norms is recognized as one of the most stringent tests for hurrican shutters and uses TAS 201,202 and 203. TAS is a requirement
for hurricane shutters within the Florida HVHZ.

Some newer properties in certain parts of Florida have pre built storage specifically for storm panels.
