Storm Tex - Retractable Hurricane Screen

Our Storm Tex - Hurricane Screen doubles as a retractable hurricane screen and as a roll down shading and privacy screen, with exceptionally small housing sizes. 

Our one-of-a-kind "end retention system" uses a bullet zip keder unique to the hurricane protection industy. This allows for wrinkle free operation and SMALL housing sizes while also offering the same level of protection. Our Storm Tex Screens have been tested to the toughest standards required by both international and domestic building codes, such as International Building Code (IBC), Dade County and Texas Department of insurance (TDI) 

Some of the unique features of Storm Tex Screens:

  • End Retention System - allows for wider spans
  • Efficient roll diameter - minimizes housing size
  • Screen: Omega Tex
  • Stainless steel hem bar
  • Nearly wrinkle free appearance
  • Florida Building Code Approved (Approval # FL31165)
  • Miami Dade County Approved (NOA# 20-0410.05)
  • Approved for block and concrete construction

FAQ

Are your shutters and screens approved under Florida's building code?

Yes. Several of our models fall under the “hurricane shutters” category under Florida's building code. For more information, please visit our Applications section.

What colors can I choose from? (Roll Screens)

  • White

  • Brown

However, many non-standard colors and custom color options are available upon request.

Roll Shutter, Accordion Shutters, Hurricane Shutters, Storm Panels, Hurricane Screens: what is the difference?

While these shutters differ in style or design, each of these works to protect your home from torrential rains and hurricane-force winds. In addition, each of these products is tested to comply with numerous building codes (e.g. FBC and IBC).

Do you have a dealer near me?

The chances are highly likely! Just to be sure, however, you can contact us or access our Find A Dealer page to locate nearby dealers. Simply enter your zip code.

When should I use a motor with gear override?

Motorized shutters and screens with gear override should be used in case of a power outage. They may also prove ideal for creating emergency exits.

How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?

Special switches can operate up to two shutters. Somfy’s RTS or IGC technology could, virtually, operate an unlimited number of shutters with only a single switch! The technology could also be modified to control individual or groups of motors from multiple locations. This technology can be incorporated into most home automation and z-wave systems.
