Never Deal With Plywood Again! Use Hurricane Fabric to Protect Your Windows
When hurricane season rolls in, many home and business owners often rely on plywood or protective hurricane shutters to protect the windows and doors on their buildings from high-winds, rain, and flying debris. However, putting up plywood or hurricane shutters is a time-consuming job that often requires more than one person. Not to mention, finding storage for the bulky pieces of plywood isn’t always easy. That’s where hurricane protection fabric comes in.
Fabric storm panels are touted as an efficient and effective alternative to traditional plywood or shutters. They consist of a strong, lightweight layer of woven fabric that is coated with a high-strength material. The fabric panels are easy to install and are used to cover windows and doors, providing a barrier from flying projectiles and wind blown rain. At Houston Hurricane & Security Products, we are the trusteed providers of hurricane fabric installation — contact us today to schedule a hassle-free consultation.

Many hurricane window protection fabric options feature an attractive, translucent design that still allows natural light in.
How Does Hurricane Fabric Work?
While fabric doesn’t seem like a material that would offer the hurricane protection that most people need, hurricane fabric consists of a high-strength and flexible membrane that is engineered to withstand the strongest hurricane force winds and to deflect large and small projectiles. Hurricane window protection fabric consists of a lightweight layer of woven fabric that is coated with a geo-synthetic PVC material. Flexible plastic clips are used to add flexibility to the system while holding it in place, which allows the fabric to decelerate objects more effectively than other hurricane screen systems that are available today. Most hurricane fabric systems feature a translucent fabric design to allow natural light and visibility while effectively protecting against high winds and driving rain.
At Houston Hurricane & Security Products, we carry a variety of hurricane fabric systems that are designed to offer the protection the home and business owners throughout the Texas Coast rely on come hurricane season.

What’s Better: Hurricane Fabric or Shutters?
At Houston Hurricane & Security Products, we carry an extensive selection of hurricane window protection options. While hurricane shutters are highly-effective, if they aren’t permanently installed they can be a hassle to install, deploy, and store. Not to mention, hurricane shutter systems don’t fit every opening where there is glass or a door.
Hurricane fabric, on the other hand, not only offers reliable storm protection, but it also can be used to cover virtually any opening and is very easy to install and deploy when a storm nears. They also are very easy to take down and can be folded or rolled up so that they don’t take up too much space when stored.
