In impact testing, Qompact withstood 82 punches, 5 kicks, and 40 hits with a sledge hammer. The foam-filled shutter was destroyed in seconds.
The improved lath design is 27-times stronger than a perforated 40mm slip hinge, making a Qompact shutter impenetrable by comparison.
Qompact’s end retention prohibits the curtain from being pushed out of the rails. Without end retention, the 40mm foam-filled curtain was easily compromised.
Optional end retention screws keep the curtain captive in the rails. Qompact curtains can’t be pried out with crowbars or pushed out of the rails due to high winds.
