Window Mount:

  • For MOUNT WITHOUT HOOD– top to bottom or side to side
  • Add 8” to height and width (example: buck measurement 36 x 36= finished 44 x 44)
  • If horizontal mount- make sure no obstructions on either side
  • Make sure there is 4’ clearance on each side- no obstructions on top and bottom. If any obstructions, product can be notched to accommodate.
  • For MOUNT WITH HOOD– top to bottom only
  • (if removable, for storage purposes we can add a hood)
  • Add 14” to height and width (example: buck measurement 36 x 36= finished 50 x 44)
  • Make sure there is 4’ clearance on each side- no obstructions on top and bottom

For Mounting to Floor -(lanai, entryway, porches, garages)

  • For mount without hood – top to bottom
    • Add 8” to width of buck opening
    • Add 5 ½ “ to height- the bottom bar makes it’s own angle.
  • For mount with hood-
    • Add 11”to13” to height of buck opening (to accommodate the hood)
    • Add 8” to width (unless trap opening)
    • Hood measurement is: same as width
  • ***If mounting screens together for large opening…add 4” to one screen (on the side that attaches) for overlapping.


  • Fill out Cut Sheet- Attached
  • Make Sure ALL information is complete

1 ½” Aluminum Bar is inserted into sleeve that is sewn into screen

1” Aluminum bar is attached with rivets to the already inserted 1 ½” bar

All screens are serial numbered and registered per NAMI rules and regulations

When Order is received, material is laid out and measured for custom cut

Each Screen is hand cut, sewn, riveted and labeled

Installation of CAT 5 Hurricane Screens

Verify Number of openings to be covered (proper # of panels to proper number of openings).

Standard CAT5 install is done from bottom up. Normally an inside mount windows are outside mount and can be done top to bottom.

Re-roll screen if needed, to allow bottom bar to be up.

Use chalk line to snap a guideline for bottom bar.

Measure 2” off edge of wall, column or other building material (this is to start fastening)

Make sure screen panel is even on each side or centered properly on a trapped opening.

Starting from one side, temporarily attach screen to floor with tapcons in every other pre-drilled hole.

Drill each hole out through bottom bar, to mark and make installing sidewalk bolts later less difficult.

Once bottom is done, you may now unroll and stretch screen panel to it’s full height (panel should be pulled tight and use speed square for leverage).

Drill and mount top bar with tapcons and studded panel mates (panel mates ore needed to hold hood in place). The panel mates are pre-marked on the bar to match up with grommets in the hood.


Installation of CAT 5 Hurricane Screens (cont.)

If your CAT 5 screen is removable, all top holes will require panel mates.

Install as you did on bottom, temporarily with tapcons

Drill out all holes for panel mates, remove tapcons and install panel mates

Hang Cat 5 on studs with wing nuts.

While panel is up, you should match tabs or grommets on the side of each screen if necessary.

Now remove tapcons from floor and hang screen in hood.

Roll screen panel tightly, tucking in tabs as you roll (one person can roll even the longest screen with practice).

Drill out holes in floor and walls, vacuum out all dust from holes

Install leads and sidewalk bolts, wood walls will require panel mates or brass anchors

An outside mount is easily done by installing the top first (it will be easier to level top bar than the bottom one)

Some careful measurements is all that is needed: remember- 2” for holes in concrete, 1” in wood wall or beam from all edges

Like any hurricane protection product, it won’t protect if not properly attached


Installation of Pulley System

When using a pulley system, the screen typically does not have a hood.

For best results, pulley should be mounted above top bar approx. 2”.

Pulley System is not recommended for CAT 5’s that are trapped on both sides. It can be done, but requires one more pulley and 2 x 2 angle mounted on side wall to move ropes from around screen roll.

Use Tapcons to mount top bar of screen.

Use panel mates to mount pulleys above screen

The screen size will determine the number of ropes needed to make system work.

Remove tapcon 4 to 5 holes from end of top bar

Loop rope from back and drive tapcon through loop

Run rope under screen and up to pulley, then over to side main pulley.

Leave enough rope to reach cleat location.

Repeat from step one for all other pulleys.
