- Will Armor Screen hurricane abatement systems stop wind-driven rain from penetrating my windows and doors?
Yes! Wind-driven rain is one of the biggest problems in a storm. Doors and windows are not designed to withstand the onslaught of water with that much wind pressure. Armor Screen reduces the wind and water by 95%.
We even have a report after Hurricane Ivan of Armor Screen successfully protecting a condominium from 6 hours of â€œgreen waterâ€ waves crashing onto an Armor Screen protected porch.
- How difficult is it to deploy and how long does it take?
All Armor Screen wind abatement systems are easy to deploy. The screens are light weight and the mounting systems typically require no special tools or devices. Because we offer such a wide array of mounting systems it's impossible to estimate how long your system will take to deploy.
Some systems are pulled across on a track and attached in a couple of minutes. Others are stored in bags that must be retrieved from storage and attached. But even this type of system can be deployed easily and quickly. Whole office buildings can be protected in a few hours with a small crew. Most homes can be fully protected in less than one hour by one person.
- What anchors are installed into my building
Anchors can be installed in an inconspicuous manner and designed to not detract from the aesthetics of your structure. If desired, anchors can be removable from the skin of your building. Color matched caps can be supplied to cover the threaded insert.
Stainless steel is the heart of our anchoring system. All anchors are corrosion resistant and are protected from electrolysis. Ground anchors in grass are installed below ground level into a plastic receptacle (somewhat like a putting cup) and can be mowed over. See the System page for more details.
- What kind of maintenance does your system have?
Armor Screen wind abatement systems are designed to be maintenance free. The basic system has no moving parts to clean, lubricate, or jam just when you are deploying in a hurry. The fabric is practically impervious to the elements. Traditional rigid systems, of all types, often must be replaced if they are hit with flying debris. Armor Screen just bounces back. Maintenance free savings add to the value of Armor Screen.
