The MOST Tested and Proven Hurricane Screens in the WORLD!
Don’t let the attractive design of our Hurricane Barriers fool you. While they are visually pleasing and provide permanent protection from storms, they also carry the much sought-after approval from the Miami-Dade County Building Code Compliance Office. That makes Phoenix Architectural Products your one-stop-shop for window protection that meets all of your building needs.
Phoenix Architectural Products engineers, manufactures, and installs the most rigorously tested Hurricane Screens in the World! While we provide the actual test measurement results on this paper, the proof is in the thousands of screens that have been deployed and always protect their structures and inhabitants 24/7 while being maintenance free! And, you can see through our screens while they protect you and your property.
The National Fenestration Rating Council (www.NFRC.org) is the Governmental Agency that creates the energy efficiency measurement procedures for windows, doors & building openings. The NFRC has approved a single firm, Architectural Testing, Inc., to perform one of their most critical test procedures, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) measures a material’s ability to block radiant heat from the sun. The SHGC makes it possible to design and select materials that reduce the building’s total heat load. Architectural Testing, Inc., found that you can improve the SHGC of your protected openings by 50%, by using our Hurricane Screens.
Wind Pressure Loss
The Wind Pressure Loss factor measures the reduced wind pressure by use of our Hurricane Screens. While the pressure drop varies by circumstance, we can conservatively state that wind pressure loss exceeds 30% of the original pressure. This pressure reduction shields your windows from the wind’s full impact. Wind pressure loss will also help you on a daily basis by reducing the effect of outside environmental factors on your indoor climate.
Measuring the transmittance of sunlight through transparent, translucent, or reflectively coated building materials is necessary to determine the illumination of interior spaces and the effect that ultraviolet (UV) spectrum will have on interior furnishings. By using Phoenix Architectural Products’ Hurricane Screens, your Visible Light Reflectance increases by 67%. This is similar to a wrap on a bus, allowing the passengers to see outside, while providing privacy from people peering into the bus.
