A- Hurricane StormBoards (HSB) Description.

Hurricane StormBoards replace high-cost aluminum storm panels.  Semi- transparent Hurricane StormBoards panels allow daylight to pass through and illuminate the home in case of power outage. Hurricane StormBoards made of virgin high density polyethylene (HDPE), are waterproof, weather resistent, light weight, non-polluting, structurally sound and safe to install.  Hurricane StormBoards cut like wood or metal and last for at least 25 years.
