Unlike other storm panels, VuSafe Polycarbonate Storm Panels come complete with a full set of exclusive attachment hardware. We highly recommend you practice a few “dry runs” with your polycarbonate storm panels so that you are practiced for a quick installation when a storm is approaching, and to make sure you have everything you need.
If you find that something is missing, you can order replacement hardware for your hurricane window panels by contacting us at 800-522-1599.
VIDEO GUIDE – How to Install VuSafe Window Panels with Ultra-H Header
Paul Craig, President & CEO, explains the proper installation procedure for VuSafe Polycarbonate Storm Panels using our exclusive Ultra-H Header system. There is a transcript below in case you are having problems with the video.
If you have a VuSafe Hurricane Panel with an Ultra-H Header system, which is what you see here, we’re going to show you how to properly install your panels. You will notice that there is a v-groove in the bottom of our H-Header, that’s for our proprietary hanging and attachment system. So, the easiest way to do this is to get out the panels that are required for each opening. Every opening is numbered, so get the panels out with the corresponding number to the location number. Simply push the panels up into the H-Header and knock that clip down into the v-groove.
At the base, you’ll slide your track bolts into the F-Track, aligning them with the keyhole punches you see at the bottom of the panel. Over each bolt, place a polycarbonate washer and then your washered wingnut. You do not need any power tools to tighten this down, simply tighten down by hand and snug it up. If you’re missing hardware, please call us right away and we’ll ship some out to you. Don’t wait until there is a hurricane warning to discover you need hardware or to dry fit some of these. Try to get out in front of a storm or in front of the season and test out your hurricane shutters.
