Makrolon® sheet withstands simulator’s hurricane force winds
Hurricane simulators require clear doors that withstand high internal wind forces and keep occupants visible.
080 Studios developed its Hurricane Simulator as a consumer “attraction” that demonstrates hurricane forces to individuals.
For the door, their design called for a clear material that would resist high internal forces, and ensure that occupants and their reactions were visible during the experience.
Their location in malls and other public areas also required that the door material meet national and global flammability codes for interior public spaces.

Marketed internationally, the hurricane simulator brings the experience of a hurricane to individuals worldwide. It also demonstrates the benefits of Makrolon sheet as over-glazing for building and window system protection during severe weather.
