News 9 says a tornado on the ground near St. Pete Beach.

If you are just waking up in St. Pete, take precautions.

Morning Prospero!

You may want to repost these.

Somehow you ended up with me in the bowels of the discussion board where your post will never be seen.

Tazman, here is a great website that shows the install of the panels.

http://www.stormshutters.com/storm-panels/installation_photos.html.

I think the Guys' name I dealt with at ASI was named Kevin.

Order your hardware thru HuricaneDepot.com. 1/2 the price of lowes.

I won't have any photos of the panels on my house until we know a hurricane is coimng our way. Hardware was ordered yesterday.

Glad that you received your answer. The Description of the Weather Q&A Forum has been modified to include inquiries like yours, however, the original post was not appropriate for the Storm Forum. If you don't give a damn about the rules, then I'm sure that you will not be upset when we 'tramp back' and move your post into its proper niche.

I did see that the description has changed. Bravo! Good job.

If you look back upon history, youll see that sometimes a revolution is required to force governing bodies to act for the benefit of the population it believes it serves.

give me hardware or give me TD7!

Hello Ed, Can you explain what "caulk-ins" are and where you bought yours? I am doing a similar install on my house but am using 22 guage corrugated steel. My house has a red brick veneer. Up until recently, I thought the brick was solid, but when I drilled into it the other day, I discovered it was hollow red brick, with two cells per brick. I was thinking of using a panelmate type fastener, female variety, that would go all the way through the brick and anchor into the wood 2x4 studs that are underneath. Has anyone ever done this? Thanks Joe Stewart

hey ya;all just my 2-cents worth, i am a marine contractor and have done quite a few commercial jobs where city engineers are involved, in most applications where anything is fastened to concrete by means of bolt-screw ect the engineers call for a 2 part epoxy system to be injected into hole prior to bolt ect, being inserted. What we have used is a concrete epoxy made by Simpson. Its the same company that makes all the hardware for structural fasteners ie: hurricane ties . It is the most tenacious stuff ive ever worked with. and will result in concrete failure prior to epoxy failure,and it has a self mixing nozzle,so no messy mixing then attempting to smear it into the hole. Good Stuff.

how do you keep the epoxy out of the threads of the insert, when you want to have a removable bolt system?

My last post explaning caulk-ins was lost was lost.

Caulk ins are the same as machine screw anchors and this hardware can be seen on hurricanedepot.com.

the epoxy system sounds interesting. I have all my hardware installed, but my next door neighbor is getting ready to do his. Got a website describing material and application?

Ed, sorry for the delay, what we do is drill an oversized hole to accomidate the insert,remember to drill1/4 in. past the actual depth, clear the hole with compressed air, thread the hold down bolt into insert, inject epoxy into hole then insert female insert with bolt attached,let dry remove bolt until its needed.
if you google SIMPSON -STRONG-TIE , at main page , search - Set -Epoxy-tie adhesive. you'll get it. this stuff is the ticket.

Wow! This web site is a great help for do it yourself owners. In response to the many complaints regarding tap-cons and caulk-ins, I have a patented fastener which I invented to solve these problems. Easy to install, flush with the surface, with 1/4-20 internal thread. It cannot turn in hole. Rust-proof. Pull test is: 1550 lbs. For more information, see my fastener at: BobINV2@AOL.COM. Or this one for a picture: http://www.connexx.com/opportunities.html
