Atlas Armor hurricane screens are made of fabric, and your imagination only limits their benefits. Instead of building a patio with a wood privacy fence, consider using our roll-down screen that offers you a degree of privacy while still enjoying your surroundings.
Unlike other fabric screens, Atlas Armor hurricane screens don't have to hide from the sun, and they can be fully exposed to the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays without any damaging effects for the full 10 years.
We warranty it. We will replace your fabric screens if it ever becomes damaged by the sun's UV rays, atmospheric chemicals, rot, mold, or mildew.
You can quickly judge a product's components by looking at its warranty. We have a full fabric screen replacement warranty, not one that is pro-rated based on how long ago you bought it
Our warranty is also transferrable if you should sell your home before the end of the warranty. No other hurricane product offers a transferrable warranty.
Atlas Armor hurricane screens are the oldest certified roll-down fabric screen available for the Florida High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) Miami-Dade & Broward counties.
We also have the Florida Building Code approval so you can Install Atlas Armor hurricane screens
anywhere in Florida.
Other states, such as Texas, often use Miami-Dade approval as their standard, and insurance companies often insist on products that carry the NOA approval.
Because Atlas Armor hurricane screens are warranted for 10 years, WE BUILD THEM TO BE USED in a salt water environment. We use the best materials and components that are currently available.
All metals are powder-coated, our motors are warranted for 4 or 5 years (based upon the type of motor), and our screens are warranted for 10 years. We offer all stainless steel components for our coastal customers. Our screens are made from heavy extruded aluminum, stainless steel, and polyester/Aramid fabric. Aramid is also known by the trademarked named Kevlar.
Why pay more to have one product for hurricane protection, another for solar protection, and another for insect protection? Think of our Atlas Armor hurricane screens as the "Swiss Army Knife" of the screening world because one screen provides all of your protection and comfort needs in ONE screen. Our Atlas Armor hurricane screens also protects against solar heat, harmful solar UV rays, flying insects including no-see-ums, and everyday wind and rain. Our transparent fabric screens also allow you to enjoy your view, and they let in light and those comfortable light breezes.
Our one-piece heavy-duty tracks, motor idles, and reels are designed for an extended lifetime of heavy usage. Atlas Armor hurricane screens are a blend of Aramid (used to build race cars, airplanes, and military bulletproof vests) and Polyester, which is much stronger than the other typical screen fabrics made of Polypropylene (used for water ski ropes) or Polyurethane (used for trampolines'). Atlas Armor hurricane screens are not affected by the sun's UV rays like the other screens that dry out, shrink and turn brittle. Again, look at the other screening product's warranty. Our screens love the sun.
We have two types of screens: roll-down and fixed panels. The roll down screen is remotely controlled, Our patented hurricane fixed panels are manually placed into side tracks and anchored in place by means of 2 stainless steel pins. No tools required. The tracks for the panels are always mounted on the outside but the fabric can be installed into the tracks while you are either on the outside or on the inside of the home ... on any floor level as long as you can reach the side track on each side of the opening
Because Atlas Armor hurricane screens can be used every day instead of just once a year or once in several years, the cost of our screens divided by the actual usage days makes ownership just a few pennies per day. PLUS, you also get the daily comfort benefits as well. For example, take someone elses $1,000 hurricane product and divide it by the number of days you use it. If you use it once every 2 years, it would cost you $500 per day for that 2-year time frame. In the case of Atlas Armor hurricane screens, you would be using them every day for those 2 years, so that it would cost you $1.37 per day. Now, divide the cost of our screen by the number of warranty days to get the actual daily price of $0.27 per day for our screen. Pennies. Now add that, you will need to replace (buy again) the other product when they get damaged, but not ours. See our warranty.
OUR FABRIC SCREENS ARE MADE OUT OF OMEGATEX, WHICH IS A GREEN PRODUCT AND QUALIFIES FOR US FEDERAL TAX CREDITS
The same fabric screening material used in our Atlas Armor hurricane roll-down screens can also be attached as a removable panel or a permanently fixed screen. It qualifies for federal tax credits when it's forever covering your opening. Sorry, the roll-down screens (because they are not always covering the opening) do not qualify for the tax credit.
You will, however, continue to save on your cooling energy bills whenever our fabric screens are being used.
Atlas Armor hurricane screens can be surface mounted on existing walls or built into the walls and ceiling on new construction. Either way, the screen remains hidden in the hood until required; then, a touch of a button they appear. We suggest that you choose the black colored hurricane fabric, because they are the easiest to see through and to keep clean. The other screen colors will have more opaque quality. Outside of the color, all screens have the same properties and price. See the FAQ section for color samples.
Our hurricane protection screens are engineered for strength, functionality, dependability, and aesthetics. For example, all screen perimeter seams are hidden from view. Unlike other hurricane shutters, our patented weight bar is designed to flex less and automatically adjust to sloped or uneven floor surfaces. The Atlas Armor hurricane screens are NOT baggy in appearance. On screens tyaller than 10', our 2" seams run horizontally across the top of the screen so that you never look directly through the seam, some other screens manufacturers always run their 4" wide seams vertically down the center of the screen which always hinders your view.
If you are designing a deck or a patio, consider using our screens to reduce the heat effects of the west sun and block the wind. If you like spending time in your backyard, you will love our screens, but you don't like mosquitoes or no-see-ums. Our screens are your answer if you enjoy being outdoors but would also like a little privacy while keeping your view or want to watch the sunset without getting blinded. We are your answer if you like to entertain on your enclosed patio without fear of high winds or rain ruining your party. And, when you don't need our screen, push a button, and we will disappear until we are again required. We are very versatile.
