It is for hurricanes. There are set screws in the masonry and I use wing nuts and nuts to secure a bottom track and then bolt the material right onto the house.

I am not going to put it up as that sucks and takes hours but Iíll find a pic for you

Since we recently went through two 'canes here, I'm just looking for ideas for the future. I have tall windows around the house, and thought this might work to protect them. Thanks. Didn't mean to hijack the thread.
