Protect Your Home with Hurricane Screens: Everything You Need to Know

Hurricane Screens (Fabric)

American Hurricane Shutters has been working to protect your homes and businesses for years. It’s our specialty because we believe we have the best product on the planet. Protect your home from hurricane-force winds and debris with the innovative and advanced design of hurricane screen fabric. It’s a surefire way to keep your porch items safe without a ton of work. Our Roll-Up System offers industry-leading hurricane protection and everyday protection from sun, wind, pollen, and rain.

This innovative system from Alutech United provides best-in-class operation and a long life span. A typical rolldown hurricane screen can get bound up easily or look “crooked.” But with our innovative system, which uses a proprietary “bullet” end retention and weighty stainless steel bottom bar, ensures this is rare, and you can go years without maintenance. Combined with the aramid fiber–reinforced (Kevlar) screen, you can shield yourself and your family every day of the year.

The system can be manually or electronically operated and can even be controlled remotely by cell phone. This operation makes it easy to protect your home or business in a flash. The Grommet System is a transparent, lightweight, and affordable option for hurricane protection, while the Strap and Buckle System offers unparalleled strength and design options for larger openings. All systems utilize U.V. stabilized fabric and thread and are Miami-Dade County and Florida Building Code approved. Choose from various colors and options, including custom colors and remote controls.

You’ll be sure to match your business or home with our wide selection. Our rolldown hurricane screens have been tested and passed ASTM/TAS protocols for your peace of mind. American Hurricane Shutters is here to help you decide which color and fabric will best fit your home or business. Contact us today to find out how we can provide ample protection for you.

Our Easiest Shutter to Use

One of the biggest advantages of roll down hurricane shutters is their ease of use especially electric shutters. Unlike other types of hurricane protection, such as plywood or storm panels, our shutters can be quickly and easily opened and closed by anyone in the household. With electric shutters this is just the push of a button, which can be done remotely if desired. This means you can quickly secure your home in the event of a storm without needing to hire a professional or spend hours installing and removing panels. Additionally, rolldown shutters require very little maintenance, (monthly use with cleaning 1-2x a year) making them a hassle-free investment for any homeowner.

We Recommend Using Screens Only On Porches, Lanais, and Windows with Deep Pockets


Rolldowns require some maintenance- including frequent use and yearly cleaning. Other styles require proper storage. Check out our Maintenance Section for details.

Pressure Rated

We perform design pressure calculations to ensure your shutters will not blow in/out during a storm- which can cause the home to implode.

Impact Rated

Shutters meet ASTM 1886E/1996E/e330 and/or TAS 201, 202, 203 to ensure superior protection from flying debris.

Easy to Use

Approximately as easy to use as accordions when manual, by far the easiest solution if electrics are chosen.

Energy Savings

If HOA allows, deployment of shutters when not around, during sunny days, or during storms will cut down on solar gain/loss. Ease of use means they can be used daily if desired.

Insurance Inspections

Your insurance company may offer a discount if you protect all the openings on your home with a blend of hurricane protection products.
