Window & Door Protection

PROVIDE protection against debris entering around doorways and windows by use of boards or plywood

Use of Window and Door Protection

COVER doors and windows completely with plywood, if affected by the hazard, and use an alternate entrance.
USE low-grade plywood to overlap windows, vents and doors 3 to 4 inches on all sides.
SECURE each sheet of plywood with four or more nails, screws or bolts; stakes and boards may also be used to wedge barriers in place. As an alternative, standing pipes on both sides of a door may be used to secure a removable barrier

Window and Door Protection

MATERIALS can be dismantled after the storm season and stored year-to-year.
