High winds from hurricanes and severe storms can cause broken windows, allowing extensive damage to the interior of your home. While covering windows with plywood is the least expensive option, polypropylene plastic storm panels weigh much less and allow light into the home.

  1. Hello –
    This is just what I have been looking for to replace my plywood panels…!
    I wonder if you can supply me with the retailer or manufacturer contact information for this product (corrugated polypropylene storm panel).
    Thanks for your help.

  2. I am looking at replacing my aluminum storm shutters with plastic because of the weight. Can you send me information on this product.
    Thank you.

  5. I installed these panels 10 years ago and they performed wonderfully. Now I have added a large addition and need more panels. Having a hard time finding them. Do you have a contact? The place in Friendship, TX, no longer handles them (where we ordered last time). Would like to know soon —- thank you.

      Glad these panels have worked well for you, and congratulations on your home’s addition!

  6. I appreciate the information on hurricane products, specifically, the Plastic Storm Panels. However, the info. , in and of itself, is useless if we don’t know where to buy it. Can’t find any retail outlet for the Plastic Storm Panels in the state of Florida.
