Why It’s Important to Protect Your Home for Severe Weather

Leading up to a severe storm, you will want to ensure that you and your family are protected. Windows and doors are two areas in your home that are most likely to be subjected to damage during a hurricane, high-force windstorms, earthquakes, tsunamis, or other severe weather.


Flying debris during severe weather can impact the integrity of your windows or doors, especially glass doors or windows as it can shatter inwards, posing a safety risk to you and your family. Once a window is broken, more risk is imposed as additional bits of larger debris during the storm can fly in and damage the interior of the home and its contents.


If you live in an area prone to severe weather, it is very important to make haste and not overlook protecting your windows and doors for storm season.

Protecting Your Windows in Severe Weather

Protecting your windows is extremely important leading up to storm season. An impacted window can bring serious impact to the interior of your home. Installing security screens on your windows is one of the easiest ways to counteract high-force winds and protect against damage.

Additionally, Crimsafe protects against bushfires by providing the highest level of protection from ember attack, radiant heat, and the impact of burning debris on glass.


Choosing the right storm screen for your window is important, Crimsafe storm screens offer additional benefits that traditional storm shutters do not.
