Hurricane 2024 ahead: Motorized Screen

March 17, 20245 min read

Hurricane Preparedness and Time-Sensitive Protection is Simply As A Click Of A Button," Arthur James.

Introduction:

As hurricane seasons 2024 approaches, preparedness cannot be overstated. The potential for catastrophic damage underscores the need to plan ahead and safeguard your property and loved ones. In the last seven years, Florida has seen it share of direct impact: Irma, Michael, Ian, Idalia, and Nicole.

This article will delve into essential hurricane preparedness steps and explore the significance of time in the days leading up to a hurricane. We'll also highlight innovative solutions like the Defender Motorize Hurricane Screen that provide swift and effective protection with a mere click of a button.


With that said, here are 6 reasons why you should start thinking about Hurricane Season 2024! 👊

1. When Should you Prepare for A Hurricane?

Start Now. Preparing for a hurricane involves a series of proactive measures that can make a significant difference when the storm arrives. If you wait for the storm, you will chase what you need. Start Now. From creating a family emergency plan to stocking up on essential supplies such as water, non-perishable food, and medications, every step counts. Additionally, securing your property is paramount. Check your storm shutters, stock up on plywood to cover those windows, or press a button and watch your Defender Hurricane Screen deploy.

2. Understanding How Hurricanes Forms?

Hurricanes require essential ingredients. Warm ocean water is the energy source, providing the heat and moisture necessary for the storm's growth. When combined with atmospheric instability, rotation from the Earth, and Tradewinds, hurricanes can intensify rapidly and change course in 15 minutes.

Take, for example, Hurricane Charly in 2004. It was supposed to be Tampa's 100 hurricane—the predicted path was to make landfall in Tampa and exit the state between Tallahassee and Jacksonville. At the last minute, it took a sharp no, easterly turn and decimated Punta Gorda, plowed through Orlando, and created havoc exiting over New Smyrna Beach. Central Florida had less than 3 hours to prepare.

Hurricanes are unpredictable. Yes, monitoring ocean temperatures, weather forecasts, and atmospheric conditions plays a crucial role in predicting their formation and path. The million-dollar question is where the land is and how much time you have to prepare. This is why motorized Defender Hurricanes are the best solution to hurricane unpredictability.

3. Advance Notifications of A Hurricane Making Landfall.

Forecasting technology has improved significantly, enabling meteorologists to provide more accurate predictions. Generally, experts can predict a hurricane's trajectory and potential impact about five days in advance; However, the exact timing and intensity can still change for the better or the worse.

For Floridians and Jamaicans, there is no better example of unpredictability than Hurricane Dorian. Every Hurricane model predicted that the path would pass straight over Jamacia, barrel directly into Cap Canaveral, and blast through North Central Florida as Category Three. Floridians from Cocoa Beach to Palm Coast and Orlando to Oviedo braced for the worse.

The essentials and safety necessities were nonexistent. There was no gas or plywood; long lines led to empty and bare shelves. Homeowners were taking down wood fence panels and covering their windows and lanais. Then, four hours before landfall, Dorian's forward progress stopped. It remained stationary for days, then turned North.

Never try to predict a hurricane. Just be prepared.

4. Days Before Hurricane Landfall

The days leading up to a hurricane are limited and crucial, so timely preparation is essential. Key steps include:

  • Having a well-organized emergency kit.

  • Securing loose objects around your property.

  • Gather essential documents

  • Emergency Evacuation Plans. 

  • Secure loose objects around your property.

  • Shore up vulnerable areas 

This is where motorized screens, such as the ones offered by Florida Living Outdoor and MagnaTrack, shine.

5. Time and Preparation: The Ultimate Hurricane Defense.

Time is a precious commodity when facing an impending hurricane. Swift actions and well-executed plans can make a significant difference in minimizing damage and ensuring safety; however, a few items will simplify hurricane prep.

Items like the Motorized Defender Hurricane Screen are engineered to withstand even the fiercest storms—the patented side track systems utilizing opposing-pull neodymium magnets to absorb impact when coupled with ballistic fiber-woven screens.

It will not matter if the Hurricane is a direct hit or near miss. Defender Hurricane Screens Installed by Florida Living Outdoor can defend against a Category Five hurricane. The ability to rapidly deploy motorized screen protection aligns perfectly with the situation's urgency. Prepping those outdoor lanais, windows, and patios for a hurricane is as simple as a click of a button.

6. Benefits and Use of Defender Hurricane Screens:

The ease of use is striking: A simple button click deploys the motorized screens in seconds. MagnaTrack's innovative free-floating inner track system makes these screens unmatched in their versatility. Beyond hurricane protection, these screens provide year-round benefits, including shielding against bugs, sun, and rain, enabling climate-controlled environments.

Notably, the MagnaTrack System is the only screen tested for openings up to 30 feet wide and 20 feet tall, offering extensive coverage.

7. Think Positively about Hurricane Screens:

We at Florida Living Outdoor wish everyone a safe hurricane season. May this article, "here are 6 reasons why you should start thinking about Hurricane Season 2024!," find you before the first storm. Remember Hurricane Season starts June 1st. It time to start thinking about how you will protect your home. We are here to help.
