Our hurricane panels have 3 keyholes on the top and bottom.  The keyholes are 6" apart and the panels overlap at the beginning and ending keyhole.  Each aluminum hurricane panels covers 12".  The center of the keyhole is located 1" from the edge of the panel.

The hurricane panel has a 2" profile and these will fit the 2" h-headers and build-out U tracks.  If you have hurricane panels and would like to purchase our tracks, make sure the channel U width is exactly 2".

The 2" x 2" angle track (Studded-Angle)  has stainless steel studs with 1/4" x 20 threads every  six inches.  If the studs are 6.25" apart, our hurricane panels will not fit these tracks.

The upper track channel must be exactly 2".
