Plastic Products for Storm Protection

Picture of plastic for Storm Protection

When high winds or debris threaten homes and properties, protect your windows and doors with performance plastics! Unlike plywood, materials like Multiwall Polycarbonate are lightweight, durable, and offer extreme protection while still allowing light to pass through! Polycarbonate also won’t warp, split, promote termites, and can quickly and easily be removed, stored away in the off-season, and installed when needed!

Brands include SABIC’s LEXAN™ THERMOCLEAR™, Plaskolite’s Hurrigal and more!
