Hurricane fabric is quickly becoming a very popular choice in protecting your home during an approaching storm. While lightweight and extremely strong, hurricane fabric is very easy to install without needing the help of someone else. The fabric is secured along the edges of the opening using either studs and wingnuts, like a traditional panel system or by a threaded screw that screws directly into an anchor in your wall.

Hurricane fabric is an excellent choice for oddly shaped windows or large openings where traditional hurricane protection won’t work.
