Default Hurricane Shutters or Fabric Shield

We were spared once again this season. My busy period is slowing down and now is the perfect time for hurricane shutters or fabric shield. Hoping we never need to use them again but just in case be prepared. I still install hurricane shutters and Fabric Shield. Call, email or text for a free estimate.

Fred, the fabric shield material----does it let light through it? I don't really worry bout hurricane protection, I work nights and like my room to be blacked out and was always wondering about this stuff. And does it just roll up and tuck away?

I have 4 windows forming a bay window in my bedroom.
2 windows are 35x37
2 others are 34x37

Could you give me an rough estimate, PM ifin you don't wanna put it out here...

We have them dern vertical blinds and they shut out a bit, but not enough. I figured these might be better since I could put them on when I'm working and take em off when I'm not and just in case we get a storm, the south side of my house would be protected, not that I worry to much bout hurricanes up at my place too much...

Jason, the fabric will let some translucent light in. They may not be the best for room darkening but I would be happy to quote them if you are still interested.

Fabric Shield vs steel
Fabric lets a translucent light in the house, steel only lets light in the high rib of the corrugation
Fabric rolls up and stores in tubes provided, steel panels are bulky, and heavy
Fabric and steel may both allow the window to break as tested with a large missile, 9 lb, 2x4 but the fabric keeps the envelop of the house encased and helps prevent wind and rain from entering the opening. Once the metal panels are damaged all of the elements can enter the broken window or door,
Fabric shield weighs a fraction of steel
Fabric does not get hot like steel
Fabric will not cut you if dropped during installation like steel can
An entire opening can be carried at one time with fabric, it takes 7 steel panels 77" long to cover a standard sliding glass door. That's almost 50 pounds if the steel panels weigh 1 pound per foot.
I didn't like the fabric at first because I was so used to installing the metal panels, but once I educated myself on the pros of fabric vs steel panels I was convinced the fabric was superior to steel in my opinion. I have had engineers buy fabric for their homes and many of their friends homes as well.
