Please note - these panels are not rated for hurricane protection - he is using them as a cheaper alternative for plywood. They are actually materials used for outdoor signage - not in the construction industry for any type of protection. They will stop some branches from breaking windows but by no means give the protection truly required to stop hurricane damage. It can be a false sense of security if used.

This person should be thrown in jail if they're selling this to the public.

Note: As one can see on the website, Freddies Plastics does not advertise these panels as hurricane panels. Your installation of these panels for hurricane protection is your own liability. Freddies is not misleading, just selling sign materials. This product is far more protective than nothing!

the site posted by anon 6:00pm lists 3/8" and 1/2" thick corragated plastic, both also avaliable form freddies.
that thickness has real protection w/o the weight of plywood. the guy in the photos is just cheeping out with the sign thickness plastic.
