Each hurricane season brings the threat of hurricanes, tropical storms, tropical cyclones and other inclement weather to the island of St. John. Residents of St. John remember the impact of Hurricane Irma on their island in 2017, and hurricane preparedness is on their mind. Stocking up on canned goods, water, and batteries, and having an evacuation plan, are smart and necessary hurricane safety measures you and your family should be taking in St. John. But there is another storm preparedness measure you may have overlooked – protecting your home with hurricane shutters. Hurricane shutters, such as roll-down shutters, completely secure your windows and doors against the driving rain, high winds, and flying debris that can come with hurricanes and other storms.
Empire Construction & Development expertly manufactures hurricane shutters for properties in St. John and throughout the Virgin Islands. Roll-down hurricane shutters are a popular and durable storm protection product. These storm shutters are a great choice for homes, hotels, restaurants, and resorts in St. John because:
*Rolling Shutters are Custom-Designed

Rolling storm shutters can fit most windows and doors. Rolling shutters are available in your choice of four colors: white, ivory, beige, and bronze.
*Rolling Shutters are Strong
These durable aluminum shutters are built with blade heights of 40mm or 60mm, depending on your needs and the size of the opening. At Empire Construction & Development, our hurricane shutters are built to stand up to high wind speeds. Hurricane wind speeds can quickly exceed 100 MPH, so you need shutters that you can count on.

*You Can Open and Close Rolling Shutters Easily
Roll-don shutters can be operated by a manual crank, a standard motor, or a remote-control-operated motor. Each option allows for ease-of-use. No more struggling with plywood or panels – simply roll your shutters down and rest assured your home is protected during a storm. A manual override is available for motorized shutters, so that you can still use them in the event of a power-outage in St. John.
