Dealers utilizing the OmegaTex™ fabric in an approved system during hurricane-strength winds up to 150-mph have reported that the system held as designed and the fabric not only withstood the wind loads, but no projectiles penetrated the fabric.
Twitchell’s unique fabric construction woven with PVC coated warp (TEXTILENE™) and aramid yarn (yarns that make ballistic proof materials) make OmegaTEX™ the right choice for any fixed or retractable hurricane screen application that can be used 365-days a year without the worry of degradation caused by the sun’s harmful U.V. rays. In addition to its strength and U.V. resistance, OmegaTEX™ offers protection from wind, rain, dust and debris, insects, and may even lower your energy bills.
