StormSafe® Hurricane & Security Screens
No Ordinary Bug Screen
Stop burglars in their tracks. Stop flying storm debris from breaking your windows. The nearly impenetrable stainless steel screen protection by QMI provides year-round safety, yet allows airflow and light into your home just like a bug screen.
Hurricane and Security Screens with Vision
- Meets the large missile impact test for Category 5
- Reduces glass breakage from flying debris
- Replaces your everyday bug and lizard screens
- Escape window screens available-provides both protection and ease of exit
- Shields windows from hurricane force winds and flying debris
- The screen’s surface tension stops damaging winds, but still allows light breezes and ventilation like an ordinary bug screen
Hurricane and Security Protection
- Permanent storm and security protection. Your home is protected 24/7/365 while never appearing boarded up.
- Never a rush to deploy storm protection. Leave your home knowing it’s secure no matter what happens while you are gone.

A simple panic bar along one side provides easy emergency egress; however, burglars and flying debris are kept safely outside.
Hinged screens should be used on bedrooms and basement windows for safety.
Egress screens have a continuous hinge on one side and the panic bar on the other. Egress frames are still only 3-3/4” (95.3 mm) wide x 2-13/16” (71.4 mm) deep. For aesthetic consistency, where an egress frame occurs, it is recommended to have all egress screens on that same elevation.
- Shades the sun up to 22% without compromising exterior views
- Reduces UV rays up to 60%, saving carpets and furniture from fading
No Visual Compromises
- Vision through the hurricane screens is nearly the same as an ordinary bug screen.
- Remove the old, window bug screen. The new hurricane-security screen frame mounts on the trim over and around the existing window, fastening into the building’s structure.
- The screen material is always black, enabling your vision to go toward the greatest degree of light without compromise-giving you excellent daytime visual acuity. Lighter colored screens like gray or aluminum bounce light back into a person’s eye and reduce the visual clarity.
No Architectural Compromises
- Low-profile shaped or rectangular fixed screen frames are just 2-7/16” (61.9 mm) wide x 1-1/8” (28.6 mm) deep.
- Mounting is typically placed over existing trim or brick molding, thus the new StormSafe screen blends with the architecture.
- Egress screens have a continuous hinge on one side and the panic bar on the other. Egress frames are still only 3-3/4 (95.3 mm) wide x 2-13/16 (71.4 mm) deep. For aesthetic consistency, where an egress frame occurs, it is recommended to have all egress screens on that same elevation.
