Is it NOA and Florida Building Code Approved?
Yes, AstroGuard has passed the rigorous testing necessary to gain NOA approval (#15-0316,09) and Florida Building Code approval (#15208). It is also approved for use in High Velocity Wind Zones by the State of Florida, which includes all Miami-Dade Counties.
How strong is AstroGuard?
Well, AstroGuard is 55% stronger than most other hurricane fabrics (& half the cost, too). And, with a burst strength of well over 1500 lbs,, AstroGuard easily outranks metal panels, roll-downs, accoridons, and other traditional hurricane systems.
Is it expensive?
Believe it or not, AstroGuard is one of the LEAST expensive hurricane protections systems available. Stronger, safer, more affordable, and easier to deploy. These are just some of the reasons why AstroGuard is the NEXT GENERATION of hurricane protection.
Will AstroGuard satisfy my homeowner's insurance?
Yes, and these days many insurance companies are requiring homeowners to install approved hurricane protection. This reduces claims to the insurance carriers and protects homeowners from storm damage. AstroGuard is fully recognized and accepted by major insurance companies. Some clients see rate reductions of 40% after installing AstroGuard!
Is it hard to put up?
Not at all. AstroGuard weighs only ounces per square yard, making it easy to deploy at storm time. All you need is a Phillips screwdriver. You will never have to wrestle with heavy, sharp metal panels.
How do I store AstroGuard?
AstroGuard folds up neatly into its own storage bags, taking up very little room in the attic, garage, or storage unit.
Does it let the light in?
Yes, AstroGuard is translucent, so it lets light shine through into your home through windows, doors, and lanai coverings. No more feeling like you live in a cave when there's a storm outside.
