A Product Born Out of Necessity

AstroGuard is our patented hurricane protection shield. After years upon years of observing storm patterns, hurricane destructions, and ways in which other hurricane protective barriers fell short, we created the revolutionary AstroGuard that combines efficiency with affordability. We have developed this revolutionary hurricane fabric out of necessity for a better barrier against natural disasters at a more affordable price compared to other hurricane barriers. AstroGuard is practical, lightweight, cost efficient, and easy to install. It provides protection against wind and rain.

AstroGuard has undergone rigorous tests against high speed winds, pounding rain, and flying debris. Whatever may come in its way, AstroGuard withstands it all. It is approved for international use and accredited for all codes in hurricane protection.

AstroGuard is more effective than traditional shutters made of metal and fabric. It withstands 2.5 times the force compared to traditional metal and fabric shutters.

There are three ways Astroguard can save you money on hurricane protection. The fabric itself is much cheaper compared to other hurricane protection shutters made from other fabrics and metal accordions. It is so easy to install, you can do it yourself, saving money on hiring independent installation services. Finally, depending on your insurance, Astroguard can save you money on home insurance coverage.


Seal your home with the best protection available. When you invest in AstroGuard, you can be assured you are protecting yourself, your family, and your property with the best hurricane barrier on the market. When it comes to protecting the people and things you care about the most, why would you settle for anything less than the best? You can’t put a price on peace of mind.

AstroGuard has proven itself time and time again to be the most effective hurricane protection available.


AstroGuard is shaking up the hurricane protection marketplace. You probably know that hurricane fabric is quickly displacing traditional hurricane shutters, and now AstroGuard has emerged as the next generation of hurricane fabric. It combines a high-strength, high-tenacity nylon hybrid fabric with an ultra-durable, UV resistant resin coa ting. The result? Hurricane protection that is stronger, easier to own and more affordable.

Storm Catcher

"Innovative Technology”


Through state-of-the-art technology and ongoing research and development, the full line of Storm Catcher hurricane screens is now recognized as one of the most innovative and technologically advanced products in the world of hurricane protection. Patent pending (60/901,143) Storm Catcher screens are constructed of a polypropylene, woven mono-filament geo-textile fabric. With the densely porous material 95 percent solid and the weave tight enough to take advantage of the surface tension between water and screen, the material creates a barrier resistant to driving rain and flying debris. The material is still open enough to be transparent, dramatically reducing a hurricane’s destructive winds by 97 percent, thereby reducing 150-mph winds to a gentle breeze.


“Don’t be Trapped by Metal Panels”


Storm Catcher screens allow light in, so you can see outside, even in the midst of a storm. This is a tremendous benefit during power outages. You won’t be left in the dark when the electricity fails or have that “trapped” feeling you have with metal shutters.


“True Hurricane Protection”


Engineered, tested and certified to stringent and nationally recognized hurricane protection standards, Storm Catcher guards against hurricane force winds, driving rain and flying debris.
