Hurricane and Storm Screen Protection


Protection from hurricanes and storms

Crimsafe® can protect your home against hurricane damage, while still letting light in and allowing you to view the outdoors. It is tested to withstand winds up to 200 MPH/322KPH, and missile impact up to 150 MPH/241KPH. And, unlike storm panels, Crimsafe is installed in place. There is no need to spend tense moments just before a storm climbing up on ladders and hammering boards into place.

At impact, the hooking feature of Crimsafe's unique screw-clamp technology (which runs along every edge of the product) levers into the aluminium frame and spreads the load right around the perimeter of the product, rather than allowing the force to be concentrated at the point of impact. The mechanical fastening of the clamp to the mesh also resists the tendency of the mesh to be pulled out of the frame. These features permit Crimsafe® to withstand enormous force.
