Quick Deployment Shutter System
The Atlantic Hurricane season in South Florida (Palm Beach County, Broward County, Miami – Dade County) runs from June 1 through November 30th each year.
Built to withstand hurricane force winds
Our accordion shutter systems are made from high end quality aluminum for longevity and performance.
Accordion hurricane shutter “curtains” are stored to the side of the exterior window frame and are easily closed for quick coverage.
When fully open, the shutter blades fold compactly to the sides, allowing you to have full use of the light and beauty your windows have to offer.
Our accordion shutters are:
- Built to withstand hurricane force winds
- Made from high quality extruded aluminum and stainless steel parts
- Can enclose entire balconies with one shutter
- Protect patio doors from rain damage
- Fast to assemble and install
- Available in 90-degree corner mate style
Accordion shutters are among the most practical types of window coverings, because they are strong enough to offer some form of hurricane protection. This is because they are typically made of aluminum, which allows them to shield windows from heavy winds while also making it difficult for intruders to enter.
Accordion shutters often appear basic, because they typically only come in a few neutral colors, but their durability enables them to add value to a property.
They tend to cost more than many other kinds of window treatments like DIY storm panels, but they can often be installed by homeowners rather than professionals, so it is not typically necessary to pay for installation.
