Hurricane panels provide increased protection

One of the great things about living in Florida is you're never too far from the beach. However, in the event of a hurricane, proximity to the coast means sustained winds of up to 150 miles an hour. Debris and tree branches can become lethal when hurled through a window at that speed. Hurricane storm panels in aluminum, galvanized steel, or clear lexan plastic offer an extra barrier of protection. Storm panels are installed on the custom window's exterior and can slow or stop airborne projectiles.

Storm panels safeguard inexpensively

Storm panels are a relatively low-cost way to add protection to your home. Hurricane impact windows from Andersen, Eagle, Simonton, or Gorell can further decrease storm damage, but they are usually a larger investment.

Panels are removable and storable

When hurricane season ends, storm panels can be stored easily in your garage or storage area. Nine to ten panels can be stacked together and only occupy an inch of floor space. Transparent lexan plastic hurricane panels have increased in popularity because they provide protection while maintaining clarity. Many home owners choose lexan storm panels and leave them up throughout Hurricane Season for convenient use during onset of extreme weather.

FAS Windows & Doors is now offering hurricane storm panels as an economical solution to protect your home this hurricane season. Call to schedule a free, no obligation in-home consultation or visit our Orlando showroom today.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
