Hurricane panels for every home

Hurricane or storm panels are a great way to protect your home if you are looking to maintain your current window options. Storm panels can be stored in a safe place until they are needed, or can be installed in clear lexan so you can still enjoy your view. Hurricane panels come in three kinds of materials, and act as a less expensive option in comparison with high-impact replacement window glass.

FAS Windows & Doors carries hurricane panels in three material options: Galvanized steel, aluminum, and clear lexan. Galvanized steel is the most inexpensive, but the heaviest to hang. Aluminum panels are half the weight of steel panels and can be stacked conveniently in a compact storage area. Transparent lexan plastic hurricane panels have increased in popularity because they provide protection while maintaining clarity. No matter which material you choose to protect your home, all three types of panels are one hundred percent certified in the State of Florida.

From Our Customers

We had a bad experience with a previous door installer/retailer. Then we heard good things on the radio about FAS so we went to see them in their warehouse and we were impressed with both the product and the people. We bought two sets of French doors and had them installed. We were also able to customize our lock and glass selection, as well as the decorative treatment of the doors and it worked very well. Their sales rep was very personable. He called in response to our call to set up a time and he arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to talk to him. He was certainly the first contact in our home that helped convince us to try them out.

Their installation team was very good and very professional. They came out, measured, and they showed up with the doors and the doors fit, which was nice. They had the materials they needed and they cleaned up afterwards. All in all, we were very pleased with the experience. They did a great job. FAS has a higher price but there was great value. Their quality’s terrific. They did a great follow-up as well, after the work was done. They called and verified if we were satisfied with the work, up to the permit inspection. They took care of taking off the labels and so forth, which were required to be let down for the permit.
