Metal storm panels are the most cost-effective solution for dependable hurricane protection. They’re strong, durable, and are ideal for both homes and commercial buildings throughout Florida.
If a window or door is breached during a hurricane, the pressure created by extreme winds can cause the roof to blow off. This leaves all of your possessions – and your family – exposed to the storm’s wrath. Storm panels offer reliable protection from wind and flying debris, reducing the chances of finding yourself in this situation.
Our state-of-the-art hurricane panels are the top choice for Tampa Bay residents. They offer full coverage and are far stronger than a flat panel or plywood. Some panels are also designed for use with a track, ensuring the easiest possible installation experience.
At Jansen Shutters & Windows, we carry both aluminum and galvanized steel panels. They come in a variety of sizes to meet the specific needs of your home or building.
Aluminum Storm Panels
Offering double the thickness at less than half the weight, aluminum storm panels are stronger and more convenient than their steel counterparts. Their light weight makes them easier to install and allows for stacking when they’re not in use.
Due to the cost of materials, aluminum storm panels are a more expensive option. However, if your budget allows for it, you’ll find that they’re well worth the extra cost.
Steel Storm Panels
If you’re on a tight budget, galvanized steel storm panels are an excellent choice. This cost-effective solution provides the security and peace of mind you need when you’re threatened with storm damage. They offer significant benefits over using plywood, which can act as a missile if it comes loose during a storm.
Since steel storm panels so heavy, installation is a bit more of a challenge. This is particularly true for larger homes and commercial buildings. If possible, plan to have an extra person available to help with installation and removal. You’ll also need to ensure you have enough room to store your steel storm panels when they’re not in use.
Lexan Hurricane Panels
Lexan Hurricane Panels are a fantastic option for Hurricane protection. Their translucent nature allows light to still come into the house while still providing protection from high winds and wind-blown projectiles. Unlike non-transparent panels clear Lexan panels can be left in place for the entire hurricane season.
Other advantages of clear Lexan Hurricane panels are they will not rust or corrode and will retain their shape after impact.
Lexan Hurricane panels are made of a polycarbonate that is Florida Building Code approved for impact. Once customized for a home, these lightweight panels are easy to install and remove.
Top-Quality Storm Protection
In addition to offering hurricane protection, metal panels provide you with an extra layer of protection from vandalism, burglars, and looters after the storm has passed. This makes them an excellent long-term investment!
