A Product Born Out of Necessity.
We have developed the most advanced hurricane protection screen system.

Our unique, patented high modulus fiber clip is completely adjustable and flexible.
AstroFlex – Product Features
WHY ARE THE ASTROFLEX FABRIC HURRICANE PANELS THE BEST?
When designing the AstroFlex Hurricane Protection system we focused on the future while we were inventing the safest system in the World today. Our clip design is made to open up to accept replacement screens or new advances to our system that we have not even thought of yet.The most expensive part of our system besides the fabric: is the clip, wall anchoring system, and labor to install it. AstroFlex's Patented clip system can be opened back up to accept a replacement screen with ease should one ever get damaged.
All the other hurricane fabric manufacturers systems have to be completely reinstalled!
Quick and Easy Deployment
Weighing only ounces per square yard, AstroFlex is easy to deploy at storm time. It also folds up neatly into its own storage bags, taking up very little room in an attic, storage unit or garage. You will never have to wrestle heavy, sharp metal panels again! What’s best about AstroFlex however is the fact that you don’t have to look at your hurricane protection 365 days a year—we are there when you need us. You care about the look of your residence, don’t detract from it with unsightly hurricane protection systems.
Expense has long been a concern for fabric hurricane protection and before Astroflex by Hurricane Fabric LLC, it was one of the highest priced systems. However, we have engineered a better way to make a more effective system. The key to our Astroflex system is effective simplicity. Rather than give you outdated attachments that require a lengthy and expensive production process, we give you a stronger, more effective attachment that has a fraction of the cost to manufacture over the competitor’s systems.
At only ounces per square yard, Astroflex is lightweight and easy to manage. If you or your handyman has ever lifted metal panels or plywood, then you understand the importance of this feature. We have found that when a storm is coming, our Astroflex customers deploy their hurricane protection while many of their neighbors with traditional shutters do not. Some home owners with old-fashioned hurricane shutters would rather risk damage than deploy their hurricane protection! That says a lot.
Full Envelope Protection
During a hurricane, most catastrophic damage happens when a window or door is blown in, causing pressurization of the home. This pressurization can rip the roof right off of the building. Prevention of this is known as “full envelope protection.” AstroFlex provides full envelope protection by easily and effectively covering all vulnerable openings: windows, doors, garages, sliders, lanai openings and more. Even if the glass breaks, AstroFlex still prevents pressurization by deflecting the wind.
Flying Debris / Projectile Deflection
Because of its flexible nature, AstroFlex stops flying debris and projectiles more effectively than any other form of hurricane protection. Solid hurricane shutters can fail when impacted, and in many cases they are damaged or misshapen enough that a new shutter must be purchased. AstroFlex stops debris and will keep stopping it again and again to maintain the full envelope protection of your home.
Home and Business Use
AstroFlex is appropriate for both residential and commercial use
These days, many insurance companies are requiring homeowners to install approved hurricane protection. This reduces claims to the insurance carrier and protects homeowners from storm damage. AstroFlex is fully recognized and approved by major insurance companies such as Chubb, Citizens (Florida), Fireman’s Fund, and many others.
AstroFlex won’t leave you in the dark. Its translucent nature lets light in while it is deployed over your windows, doors and lanais. Say goodbye to the “cave” feeling you get from traditional hurricane shutters.
