* Gallina 6 foot wide sheets have not undergone any specific laboratory testing regimes. However, given that the surface area for the distribution of impact forces is actually larger than it is on 4 foot wide sheets, it is generally believed that these sheets, if tested, would also pass the ASTM and Miami-Dade County large missile impact test.

** These items have not undergone any specific testing regime, but are believed to be more than adequate for their intended purpose, if installed properly.

*** These items are promoted by a competitor for an "easy" installation, but frankly, as an adhesive-backed product, I do not believe they will hold a panel on a structure in a serious storm. They are only offered as a last resort for customers who simply refuse to go to the effort of installing effective anchors. They are offered only at the buyer's informed risk.
