The most innovative wind abatement systems available
We can do areas much larger then most products allow and maintain Miami-Dade codes. Shelters, fire rescue stations, auto dealerships, airports, store fronts, lanais and sliding glass doors are easily protected. Applications that are impossible with other products are accomplished with Armor Screen.
The system is transparent. Armor Screen’s unique inter woven design is 95% solid and 5% open, allowing you see out during the storm.
Armor Screen is light weight, weighting less then 1 pound per square yard, constructed completely of corrosion resistant materials, which allows for an easy deployment. Unlike traditional shutters Armor Screen can be released from the inside creating an exit if the situation calls for it. Once the storm passes simply take the screens down, fold them up and then store were ever convenient.
Winds of 150 mph, will be reduced to 5 mph as it passes through the screen. With Armor Screen the strength is virtually unmatched. Recent testing on Armor Screen exceeded pressures of 195 psf (276 mph). Armor Screen is flexible, in the event of an impact you want the screen to have room to absorb the impact. Our patented wind, rain & missile abatement system uses deflection to cushion the impact of objects as they strike the Armor Screen. Deflection distance varies with the height of the screen and is engineered for each opening. The flexibility allows Armor Screen more versatility in design then any other product while still exceeding code. Esthetics are always important in our installations so, flat, removable, paint able caps will be spaced around 2 feet apart.
In Florida Insurance companies are required by law to give discounts for homeowners who take certain steps in protecting there homes from potential hurricanes. The insurance discounts with Armor Screen and Foam Seal will help offset the cost of the hurricane protection.
Armor Screen's patented system uses a unique interwoven design which provides an excellent barrier to high winds and driving rain, yet you can see right through it. Replace the "dark cave effect" of traditional systems with natural light. Vibrations of rigid shutter during a hurricane can make a lot of noise. With Armor Screen this incredibly strong fabric makes little noise during the storm.
Easy to Deploy
Weighing less than 1 oz per sq. ft
Traditional rigid systems can take hours or even days to deploy. Aluminum panels come in sharp individual pieces. Armor Screen uses large sheets of light fabric for each area increasing safety and the ease of deployment. Armor Screen has less anchor points then traditional shutters which allows for less hardware to be installed in the structure and less anchor points to be fastened during deployment. Armor Screen’s buckle and strap system, is made of none moving parts. With simple directions it can easily be installed with no tools. The product is a geo synthetic textile that can be stored in almost any environment. After the storm the screens are easily folded up for storage. Tracks, roll ups, and Velcro straps are used to further increase ease of deployment.
Strength and Durability
Armor Screen is a flexible, transparent
membrane designed to withstand even the strongest hurricane
winds without rupture, Damage from flying debris will cause
replacement of most systems (impact glass, panels, accordion
shutters), but not Armor Screen. Armor Screen will not dent or
break due to an impact. Armor Screen does not lie directly over
the window, the product is flexible and will give as it absorbs
the impact. The space need for the give is called deflection
spacing, and is determined by the size of the screen. The bigger
the window the more give the screen needs. This “give” offers an
absorption quality that decelerates the missile after impact.
Once the impact occurs the energy of that impact is transferred
throughout the entire screen rather then just at the point of
impact. This gradual transfer of energy allows a light weight
screen to withstand much higher and repetitive impacts without
damage. Negative pressure is also a huge weakness
for most shutters. If wind gets behind the shutter there is an
outward pulling effect on that shutter. This negative pull is
the most common reason shutters are torn off, and the bigger the
shutter the more vulnerable it is to negative pressure. Armor
Screen is 95% solid and 5% open allowing small amounts of
pressure through the fabric so the negative pressure never
builds up behind the screens. In the situation of a patio or
entry way, these areas can allow large amounts of pressure under
the overhang increasing the uplift pressure on the
roof. Armor Screen will not only keep that pressure from
building under the roof but in most cases it can be connected to
the structure of the roof pulling down on the roof during the
storm. The stronger the wind hits the screen the harder the
screen pulls down on the edge of the roof, helping secure the
With Advanced Hurricane Solutions Esthetics is of the up-most importance
Protect your building with no impact on its beauty!
Hardware is almost invisible.
Armor Screen provides freedom of design for architects with strength respected by engineers. Applications that are impossible with other products are accomplished with Armor Screen. Since it's flexible, and the protection for each opening is custom designed and manufactured, it can be adapted to most any architectural designs.
Advanced Hurricane Solutions specializes in hurricane protection that does not change the appearance of your house, commercial building, or high-rise condominium. Our storm protection products are affordable, reliable, solutions that will provide better, stronger, more efficient solutions to most situations.
Over the last few hurricanes it has become quite clear that homes are not protected enough from hurricanes. That is why Florida has introduced laws requiring residential insurers to offer discounts for hurricane mitigation efforts. It is in the best interest of the insurance company to have their policy holders try and protect their homes the best they can. These companies cannot keep taking billion dollar hits with every land falling hurricane. Windstorm discounts require products to pass the strict Miami Dade code, but when approved these discounts can add up. Discounts vary not only from insurer to insurer, but also from areas located near the water to inland areas.
