The Horizontal Storm Bar System meets the Large Missile Impact Test requirement as specified in the IRC and IBC 2006.
Hurricane storm-rated shutters incorporate the protection of the most advanced, durable shutter materials, a strong polycarbonate layer, and storm bars. These shutters meet the IRC, IBC and State of Flordia building codes utilizing the horizontal storm bar system. Horizontal storm bars that are the width of the two closed shutters are installed at the top and bottom of the closed shutters. Horizontal storm bars are removable and can be installed when a hurricane or named weather event threat occurs.
