What Are Hurricane screens?
You may have heard hurricane screens referred to as storm screens or simply screens. This is a bit of a misnomer. There are many types of exterior screens. Some homeowners may choose decorative screens to lend an aesthetic to their homes without installing them as protective tools. Others may choose to install basic storm screens to help secure the home against seasonal wind and rain. The primary difference between basic storm screens and hurricane screens is that hurricane screens are specifically designed to endure extreme conditions. You will get the Best Retractable Screens in Delray Beach at Resolute Screens & Shades.
The Defender Hurricane Screen by Resolute Screens & Shades uses a blend of high tenacity PET and Aramid core yarns encapsulated with a durable vinyl that defends against severe hurricanes, insects, solar rays and offers maximum outdoor privacy. It also protects your home from category 5 hurricane winds, which can reach 156 mph when combined with heavy flying debris. Defender Screens’ fabrics are covered by a 10-year warranty. Unlike most competitive Polypropylene fabrics, which are highly flammable, break down easily from UV rays, and can only be used in the event of a storm, Defender Screen fabrics are “self-extinguishing.”
Who Needs Hurricane screens?
Hurricanes can cause extreme damage to homes. Tropical storms and Category 1 storms can wreak havoc on your home’s exterior with strong winds and rain. Each year, an average of ten tropical storms form in the country’s eastern waters, according to the National Weather Service.
While the likelihood of hurricane impact may vary from state to state, all homeowners who live in Delray Beach should consider purchasing hurricane screens for their property.
