Strength

Protection from pressurisation and wind and water damage

Pressurisation occurs when a window or door is damaged leading to a breach of the pressure envelope. The sudden change of pressure within the structure can precipitate rapidly evolving and sometimes catastrophic consequences.



AstroGuard protects these vulnerable openings maintains the pressure envelope by providing an effective wind and waterproof barrier even in the event of a breakage.

Some of the most severe damage is caused by rain forced into the house by the high speed winds after a breakage.

 Entire rooms may require replacement of internal walls and ceilings

 Homes may be unliveable until repaired

 Processes with assessments and insurance will take months if not longer

 Correctly fitted Astroguard will overlap openings ( see installation guide) which maintains the barrier to wind and water even in the event of a breakage behind it

 This also compensates for structures that may leak with rain under high pressure like louvre windows and older or damaged frames

 Breach of the pressure envelope

 Sudden change of pressure within the structure can precipitate catastrophic events

 Some of the most severe damage is caused by water ingress - internal structures and contents destroyed

 AstroGuard maintains an effective wind and waterproof barrier even in the event of a breakage.



Quick and easy deployment

An entire house should not take more than an hour or two

The lightweight fabric is rapidly attached to hollow, threaded wall anchors that are left in place after the installation. All that is needed is a cordless drill.

Cost effective protection for your home

AstroGuard has an initial cost but is
 the only proven product on the market

 a 'once off solution' which will be more cost effective over the long term

 Adding to the house value


Metal shutter systems
 cost tens of thousands of dollars

 considered unattractive by many

 usually rely on electricity - we ALWAYS lose power early


Plywood sheets
 Significant cost when covering an entire house

 Usually get thrown away after a few years due to storage issues

 heavy and difficult to handle

 Handling them up ladders is potentially dangerous

 Storage is a problem (warping and mould)


Translucent

Cyclone Protection Translucent MaterialAstroGuard is translucent. A surprising amount of light passes through - you will not feel 'boxed-in' or claustrophobic as one would with plywood or metal.

Why Astroguard for your business

 Do you have stock that may be damaged?

 Can you function afterwards if damaged?

 Can you remain solvent if your premises and contents are damaged and your business is unable to generate income?

 Many businesses have limited numbers of large windows and doors that are vulnerable and surprisingly cheap to protect

 Protecting these with our system may make all the difference

 Installing our protection will be Tax deductable

 Potential for reductions in insurance premiums ( we are working on it!)

UV protection

AstroGuard's special ceramic coating means that the fabric is completely protected from the effects of UV damage light and will last many years.

Important Notice

AstroGuard provides a versatile, lightweight and effective barrier against wind, water and some airborne debris that is common during cyclonic conditions. The product has been at the tested extensively in the USA and has undergone impact testing at the Cyclone Testing Station, School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, James Cook University ("JCU"), Townsville.

The product has been rated as suitable protection in category C zones of cyclone prone areas of Australia. A copy of the JCU report can be found on this website.

While we have every confidence in the quality of the products we sell, buyers must be aware that the protection afforded by AstroGuard cannot be assured in conditions being more severe than those to which it was subjected during tests undertaken at JCU, as outline in the report referred to above. Moreover, sharp or jagged airborne objects (such as glass or sheet metal) may penetrate or pass through AstroGuard if carried by intense winds (whether more severe than those applied during JCU testing or not) or severe weather conditions.

We stand by the quality the AstroGuard product, as per the warranty document (if any) that we offer to buyers at the point of sale. However, to the extent that other warranties might apply to the product (through the operation of any Australian statute) which is capable of exclusion, those warranties are expressly excluded (and negatived) in respect of any products we sell or install for buyers.

Moreover
The installation of AstroGuard (by persons other than ourselves) in a manner which is inconsistent with our instructions; or the failure of the structure to which AstroGuard is attached, will invalidate all warranties given in respect of it.
