An Evolution-ary History

Since the dawn of civilization, man has battled the elements of Mother Nature.  Hurricane protection has progressed in many ways over the years. It may have started out with something as simple as nailing old boards or used metal roof panels over doorways and windows. Then along came the hinge technique manifesting the traditional colonial shutter, the Bahama Shutter, and the clam shell awning.

  During the next 20 years, things had pretty much remained the same until the devastation caused by Hurricane Andrew, Hugo and others. The losses were catastrophic and consumers were left with ballooning insurance costs and limited (or no) insurance coverage options. There was a mass exodus of insurance companies from Florida and it was every homeowner for him/herself. This, along with improvements in hurricane forecasting, ushered in the popularity of the mechanized roll down shutter, the accordion shutter, and the slide-in overlapping, corrugated metal shutter. Since that time there have been a plethora of hurricane protection products hitting the market including fabrics, screens, foams, panels, bars, mats and the economical (but inferior) plywood clips and window films. 

Then, in a daring attempt to control the pressurization of dwellings, laminated automotive glass technology was blended with window manufacturing and impact glass was born. Until now, it was the only (although expensive) way to offer 24/7 see-thru storm and security protection.

All of the aforementioned products are better than no hurricane protection at all, but they all have drawbacks and weak points when it comes to battling the fury of Mother Nature's almighty Category 5 hurricane.
