Our fabric is made of ballistic nylon which is both high strength and high tenacity.This is not the same nylon a backpack is made out of but the same nylon that's used to make the airbag for an automobile. The nylon is then coated using a ceramic resin to block all of the suns U.V. rays. All of this is done right here in the United States. Our nylon comes from Koch Industries in Wichita, KS and our nylon clips are made in St. Louis, MO.
Our competition uses which they refer to as a geo-synthetic textile (Any see-thru fabric is made of this). But another name for our competitors' product, a name they don't want you to hear, is fabric. Because the fabric is so weak, the edges need to be folded over multiple times and the edges sewn. The remaining 95% percent of their systems are 1 layer of trampoline fabric. fabric has a burst strength of 675 psi (pounds per square inch). AstroGuard's burst strength is more than (pounds per square inch). We are more than 2X stronger.
The question you need to ask yourself is "Do I want a child's toy protecting my family?".
What most consumers don't know about the testing standards of the hurricane protection industry is that manufacturers are allowed to test a large sample specimen and if it passes, they can carry that approval down to small sizes. The reason for this,and its a sad one, is that the cost to make a system that was strong enough to stop large missile impacts on small and medium size openings was deemed cost prohibitive.
AstroGuard's fabric is so much stronger, we can repel projectiles on any size screen. This dirty little secret is exposed on our Facebook page. That is why AstroGuard has been referred to as "The Wonder Drug of the Insurance Industry" and why so many high net worth individuals are buying the lowest cost product in the world.
Most people wonder how we do it.
