I'm in South Florida and am considering buying 8 mil hurricane film
for my windows. Is it as good as they say? They claim it will hold
up against 170 MPH wind, as well as flying 2 by 4's etc. The glass
breaks, of course, but the window stays in place.
How about appearance. Does it stay clear?
Also, is it very important to get the Dow Corning 995 anchoring
glaze? They don't have it in clear, for some reason. How bad are the
fumes on that? I have a little emphasema and I noticed that the
product has some warnings about hazardous vapors.
How long do the vapors last?
Also, is there much difference between the brands, like Llumar,
Any info would be appreciated.

Those window films are not nearly as good as they say. I'm in LArgo,
we took some out of a house and did our own tests, sledge hammer, 2x4
shot out from under a harley tire, shotgun etc. They are better than
nothing but, I wouldn't hang around during a 3 up storm.
I use corragated sheet metal roofing cut to size, numbered, with
mounting hardware attached to each one. They stack flat when not
needed and don't take up much room,and are light. Really, if you have
modern windows that are set right, then you only really need to worry
about a direct hit to the window. Roof will probaley blow off first.
