Hurricane Storm Panel Shutters

 

  • Hurricane Storm Panel Shutters are available for purchase for your installation. The installation of hurricane storm panel shutters is not performed by StormPrepare.
     

  • Adhere to all applicable local Building Codes and permits for hurricane storm panels in your town, county, and state. StormPrepare is not responsible for obtaining or verifying proper local hurricane storm panel shutter installation guidelines, permits, or authorizations.

The Hurricane Storm Panels offered at StormPrepare have been designed in accordance with the 2001 edition of the Florida Building Code, and have design wind loads for a basic wind speed of 145 mph in accordance with ASCE 7-98 Standard. The Storm Panel's adequacy for impact and fatigue resistance has been verified in accordance with Section 1606.1.4 of the 2001 Florida Building Code as per PA-201, PA-202, and PA-203.

StormPrepare  offers Hurricane Storm Panels that have been issued a Notice of Acceptance (NOA) from the Miami Dade County Product Control Division. The products have been designed to comply with the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) of the Florida Building Code.

How to order Hurricane Storm Panels:

First, please contact your town and/or county Building Code Department. Find out how to apply for a permit to install hurricane panels. Inquire about the hurricane panel code requirements that are necessary within your town. Learn all of the details required to "pull a permit" through final inspection.

Your Homeowners Insurance Company may provide a discount if your home has approved hurricane panels installed. However, in most cases, the installation must be approved through a legal building permit. Before starting the project, check with your insurance company for the proper document requirements.

Next, you will require accurate WIDTH x HEIGHT "inches" measurements of all the openings you need to install panels. Write down the measurement of each opening in WIDTH (inches) x HEIGHT (inches) format.

For each opening, note the number of inches from the window glass to the outside wall. This important measurement will determine if you require header and track "buildouts" (please refer to installation drawings provided above for details).

The correct WIDTH, HEIGHT, and BUILDOUT "inches" measurements for each opening are mandatory to perform an accurate estimate.

Next, you must decide on either the ALUMINUM panel, or the GALVANIZED STEEL panel. Aluminum panels weigh less and are easier to store and install, but, aluminum panels will cost more than galvanized steel panels. For ease of installation during storm emergencies, we recommend aluminum. Both metals meet the HVHZ Florida Building Code approvals.
