“Innovative Technology”

Through state-of-the-art technology and ongoing research and development, the full line of Storm Catcher hurricane screens is now recognized as one of the most innovative and technologically advanced products in the world of hurricane protection. Patent pending (60/901,143) Storm Catcher screens are constructed of a polypropylene, woven mono-filament geo-textile fabric. With the densely porous material 95 percent solid and the weave tight enough to take advantage of the surface tension between water and screen, the material creates a barrier resistant to driving rain and flying debris. The material is still open enough to be transparent, dramatically reducing a hurricane’s destructive winds by 97 percent, thereby reducing 150-mph winds to a gentle breeze.

“Don’t be Trapped by Metal Panels”

Storm Catcher screens allow light in, so you can see outside, even in the midst of a storm. This is a tremendous benefit during power outages. You won’t be left in the dark when the electricity fails or have that “trapped” feeling you have with metal shutters.

“True Hurricane Protection”

Engineered, tested and certified to stringent and nationally recognized hurricane protection standards, Storm Catcher guards against hurricane force winds, driving rain and flying debris.
