Protection from Increased Storm Activity

haggetts truckThank you for visiting the Haggetts Aluminum blog and website. We like to keep our online readers current with news, tips and advice about aluminum products here in the Central Florida and Orlando areas. Today we would like to offer our online readers some information about the correlation between aluminum awnings and protection from increased storm activity.

The summer has arrived, bringing increased storm activity, especially here in the Central Florida area. Higher temperatures provides higher humidity in tropical areas such as Florida and many other southern states. This humidity build-up is responsible for increased storm activity, which we know can be rather powerful and destructive. Protection from increased storm activity this time of year is imperative.

Haggetts Aluminum manufactures and installes clamshell aluminum awnings here in the Central Florida and Orlando area. Clamshell aluminum awnings provide protection from unruly storm surges, avoiding damage to vital windows and doors by wind, rain and flying debris. Obviously sliding glass doors, French doors or any door with considerable glass should be protected.

Durable aluminum awnings are essential in areas with potentially strong wind gusts. Awnings are rated for wind tolerance based on width, length, material and the number of supporting arms. Modern awning designs incorporate compression joints and steel support structures to absorb and resist high velocity winds.

Storm impact on a protected home would be greatly lower than on one that has little coverage over the doors and windows. If the home or mobile home structure is breached, (especially for a mobile home) sudden pressurization of the interior can cause severe structural damage such as roof loss, and will lead to significant interior and contents damage from wind-driven rain. You should take every reasonable precaution to protect your property against flying debris and wind pressures of a storm.

Aluminum hurricane shutters are an important part of a hurricane-resistant or storm-resistant home. When they are fastened into the down position, they provide a great amount of protection for glass doors and windows. Keeping the windows and doors intact during a major windstorm is vital to the structural integrity of a home.

Haggett’s customers are impressed with the strength and durability of our clamshell aluminum awnings, so don’t hire an aluminum company that you may regret. Central Florida residents, especially mobile home owners in Orlando, Kissimmee, St Cloud, Poinciana, and surrounding communities can enjoy the benefits of aluminum awnings for their homes. In addition, we build and install aluminum screen rooms, carports, carport covers, and aluminum storage sheds,
