Additionally, StormWatch continuously performs rigorous in-house testing to make sure our products outperform those of our competitors. The videos below show head to head tests between the StormWatch anchor clamp and various competing attachment methods.

At the core of the StormWatch hurricane screen are the patent pending anchor connection clamps and solid fiberglass battens hidden in the top and bottom edges of the screens. These elements work together to solve the problem of point loading in hurricane screens.

Point loading occurs at the anchor connections of hurricane screens that do not properly distribute the wind pressure evenly across the screen. It has been proven time and again, that in conditions where other hurricane screens fail, StormWatch hurricane screens are not even damaged.
