Who Needs Hurricane Protection?
On March 1, 2002, the Florida Building Code means stricter requirements of protection for homeowners and builders. Builders in coastal counties are required to strengthen houses to withstand winds of 110 to 176 miles per hour depending on location. This translates to the requirement of approved hurricane shutters or impact-resistant windows. All our storm protection products meet or exceed the Dade County Building Code and product approved materials.
What are the chances that South Florida will be hit by a hurricane?
Over the past 110 years, the center of a hurricane has passed within 75 miles of Miami, on average, once every 3.5 years. A major hurricane (Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson scale) once every nine years, and a Category 4 or higher (such as Hurricane Andrew) once every 15 years. These numbers may seem high, but the last 30 of the past 110 years have been a period of low hurricane activity in the Atlantic.
