Time To Get Out Those Hurricane Shutters In Barbados


It’s just a little fella off the coast of Africa right now called “TD-8”, but the boffins with their sliderules, pencils and brushcuts say we should pay attention.

We are. Water, batteries, food, shutters…. I know we had something else on that list… Oh yes… Mount Gay!

    Naw, be optimistic. Its going to head for the island. Then when Bajans start to shake and shiver and maybe piss in their boots, it will stand still. Then, change direction and make a beeline North or South. Bajans will rejoice, dance in the streets and say, ‘Gob musee a Baje’.

    We are distributors for polycarbonate hurricane panels. These panels are 5/8″ thick, lightweight, clear [ see thru] can be cut with saw and even shaped with jigsaw to fit arched openings etc. Product is N.O.A. approved and has 10 year warranty. Testing shows withstanding 150 MPH plus winds and impact testing far exceeds that of aluminum panels . You can actually hit the panel as hard as you can with a hammer and not break or crack the product. It is now being sold in Florida and Texas as well as europe. This is truly the stongest approved product on the market AND it is very easy to install.
    What I need is a contact , or two, to get this product to the islands. Since you , as we here in Florida, are so prone to hurricanes ———- you really need this protection.
    I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
