The Storm Catcher line of products are rigorously tested and approved before they are released for use in the hurricane protection market place. We are often asked by our customers if there is a quality video of the Impact Testing that takes place on these products. We are glad to now be able to show you this video. This footage was obtained during a round of testing that took place at the Fenestration Testing Laboratories in Miami FL. This facility is one of the finest and most respected independent hurricane protection testing labs in the country. The footage you'll see is of the missile testing procedures. A 2 x 4 is shot at 50 feet per second at the center and at each corner of the screen. This is to simulate flying debris during a storm. The screen passed with flying colors. This particular test was done on a light colored screen, so the 2 x 4 did leave a mark on it during some of the shots, but note that the actual screen was not damaged.
