One of the ways you can prepare for the high winds and fury of a hurricane is by purchasing storm panels for the doors and windows of your home.

Of course, you can always use plywood or metal for window protection during a hurricane, but there are alternatives to those methods. One popular alternative is the use of fabric storm panels.

Fabric storm panels – also called called "wind abatement screens" may not sound tough, but in fact those rated for use as a means of window protection against a hurricane are equal to plywood and similar window coverings.

Taking the proper hurricane precautions can help keep you and your family safe. Take the lull of winter as a good opportunity to get a jump start on your hurricane safety plans this year.
