ABOUT HURRICANE SHUTTERS
Hurricane Shutters provide protection against high winds and flying objects produced by hurricanes. They are available in various forms, ranging widely in cost. The simplest form of hurricane shutter is the storm panel. Made of aluminium, this is fixed to the outside of the window in response to hurricane warnings.
A more flexible approach is the accordion hurricane shutter. This slides horizontally on top and bottom tracks, and can be easily opened away when not required. The most sophisticated type of hurricane shutter is the roll-down. This comprises linked horizontal slats, which roll up into a top housing. Roll-down hurricane shutters can be electrically operated, with automatic systems to close the shutters on a time clock, or in response to weather or light sensors.
