Netting

CAT-5 is a revolutionary storm protection system that was developed by the collaborative efforts of engineers and manufacturers with decades of experience in the storm protection industry.   The key to CAT-5’s incredible stopping and hold down power is the net and patented clamp system. It’s advanced design dramatically reduces a hurricane’s destructive wind pressures while providing impact resistance and incredible strapping and hold down power.

 

 

The Easy-to-Install CAT-5 Hurricane Netting System Can Protect ...
• Roofs
• Homes
• Manufactured homes
• Sheds
• Signs
• Cars
• Boats
• Airplanes
• Landscaping
• Construction materials & debris
• ... Just about any thing !!!


Light-admitting Netting That Can Stop a Hurricane in its Tracks!

Until now, the only way to protect your home from the devastating effects of a hurricane was to install hurricane shutters on doors and windows. However, conventional shutters aren’t designed to protect your roof, cars, fences, boats, landscaping or anything else that can’t be shuttered or sheltered inside.

Now there is a solution:

The CAT-5 Hurricane Netting System...a revolutionary solution that can protect your home... and everything around it... from the destructive force of a hurricane.

CAT-5 is a revolutionary storm protection system that was developed by the collaborative efforts of engineers and manufacturers with decades of experience in the storm protection industry.

The key to CAT-5’s incredible stopping and hold down power is the
net and patented clamp system. It’s advanced design can dramatically
reduce a hurricane’s destructive wind pressures by 63% and more
reducing 110mph+ winds to sub-hurricane levels.


Strong Enough for the Toughest Storms

With a properly engineered installation, CAT-5’s netting is made to withstand even Category 5 storms. Reinforced with thousands of fibers per square inch in each direction, it provides incredible strength. In fact, there was no laboratory wind force that could be generated to tear the net material. The result... storm protection without the worry of impact, uplift, or overturning.

In a recent test of a prototype of the net through the eye of an actual hurricane (Hurricane Jeanne, Hutchinson Island, FL 2004), the section of this mobile home with CAT-5 had no damage. The section not covered by CAT-5 incurred significant damage.


Installs Quickly and Easily

The CAT-5 system is designed to install quickly and easily. No special tools are required. Specially designed nylon clamps hold the fabric securely in a variety of configurations. The fabric can be cut smaller to fit, or panels can be joined to cover a larger surface such as a roof.

 

Use Alone or in Combination with Storm Shutters

CAT-5 is designed to be used alone, or in combination with your existing hurricane shutters. But unlike shutters,
CAT-5 deflects and slows the wind, while still letting air “breathe” into a structure before, during, and after a storm. It also allows light to pass through - a tremendous benefit during power outages.

The Perfect Protection for Your Roof

Until now, there was no hurricane protection system for preventing damage to your roof. CAT-5 diffuses hurricane- force winds, and helps hold shingles, tiles, metal and pea gravel roofs in place, preventing them from blowing off. It also helps secure trusses and roof members to the structure below.

 

CAT-5 Features Include:


• Easy, fast installation
• Breathable light-admitting fabric
• Cuts hurrican wind pressures by 63%
• Use alone or in combination with storm shutters
• Protects virtually anything
• Flordia Statewide Product Approval
