Astroguard is amazing hurricane protection for your doors and windows. It is comprised of a resin coated ballistic nylon fabric with a heat-sealed edge, the American made Astroguard hurricane shutter by Hurricane Fabric is non porous (blocking 100% of wind & rain), lightweight (weighing 1.33 oz per square foot), easy to store (easily folds into a 30 x 40″ storage bag), higher strength (impact rated at more than twice the industry standard- true capacity unknown, because testing maxed out below product potential at 76 mph) and lower cost alternative to traditional hurricane shutters. Astroguard provides full protection, without detracting from the look of the home.
Translucent Astroguard solves the dark “cave effect” created by traditional shutters such as metal or plywood panels. You can see in this picture of Astroguard, that you can see light coming in through the window.
Astroguard was used on a home in 2017 during Hurricane Irma in the British Virgin Islands. The pictures are before and after pics.
