Tested quality for a secure home - When in 1992 Hurricane Andrew hit Florida causing damages worth roughly $25 billion dollars it became clear that wind zone levels were insufficient, the existing standards had been disregarded, and existing codes were not being enforced. Consequently, adjusted missile impact test standards were put in place and more stringent building codes in Florida & Texas have been established, which are nowadays the highest standards not only in these areas but also in the whole country.
The unique heroal hurricane protection systems grant the needed ultimate level in security and storm protection for your home or business. Our solutions are certified by the Florida Building Code, as well as Texas Department of Insurance and are the only HVHZ approved systems in the roller shutter industry for category E protection.
Here you will find the most important features of heroal hurricane protection systems
heroal hurricane protection systems reached the highest level of hurricane protection during tests according to the Florida Building Code and Texas Department of Insurance. Depending on the categories D and E the shutter is exposed to impacts caused by a wooden beam reaching speeds of 50 f/s or up to 80 f/s.
Home protection is increasingly important these days. Regardless of protection against burglary or strong weather conditions, your private home is affected by multiple threats. The heroal hurricane protection systems feature maximum protection and a sense of well-being in your home. The use of our selected profile geometry and foam insulation, combined with durable weather resistant qualities of aluminum and stainless steel materials, enable the heroal hurricane protection systems to achieve cutting-edge performance to protect all kinds of essential buildings.
heroal hurricane protection systems are real energy savers. During cold nights, the loss of energy is significantly reduced due to the stable air space between window and shutter curtain. On the other hand, during summer time automated roller shutters help to cut energy costs on air conditioning. Up to 44% of energy costs can be saved overnight by a lowered heroal roller shutter system.
heroal has been setting international quality standards for decades with its aluminum finishes, meeting the demand for compatible, high quality colors for the various systems.
The challenge is to meet all different requirements regarding the individual finishing technologies for roller shutter systems. heroal powder coatings (hwr) allow the best possible level of finishes in various glosses and they are available in almost every RAL color for all extruded profiles. The high quality heroal 2-layer thick coating is used for all roll-formed profiles.
The heroal hwr powder coating fulfills quality tests from independent testing institutes – and it also observes all ecological requirements. In order to receive these certificates, the surfaces must withstand the so-called Florida weathering test with high UV exposure over a time period of 36 months without any fundamental alterations in terms of degree of gloss or color stability.
heroal offers a surface coating that is guaranteed to be durable. This ensures that all systems are well designed to withstand any weather condition. They are a worthwhile investment, not only in the property sector.
The unique heroal stainless steel slats stand for the highest level of protection (Category E).
