What happens after the glass breaks? Steel panels have been used for years as hurricane protection. They protect against rapid internal pressurization and against glass breakage from small wind driven debris. But will they prevent window breakage from large debris? Testing has proven that they do not.
The purpose of this test is to compare window damage when Fabric Shield and corrugated steel panels are impacted by a large missile traveling at 50fps per SSTD 12-99, ASTM E1996, ASTM E1886 for large missile impact. All test data from these demonstrations are available upon request.
