Tropical storms seem to be increasing along the eastern seaboard and have left behind devastating damage to properties in coastal regions of the U.S. over the last year. In general, we often prepare our homes when we learn that a hurricane or storm is headed our way. But the savvy homeowner will always have their home ready before a storm is forecasted.
When a storm is barreling toward you and your shutters are already in place, you will appreciate the peace of mind that comes with being well prepared well ahead of a hurricane or severe weather system. When your windows are secured properly, you will be better able to focus on other important storm preparations such as stocking up on food and water, securing important legal documents and policies, or if need be, evacuating your family to a safer location. Time is of the essence when a storm is approaching and having roll-down shutters that you can employ in just minutes will afford you more time to prepare.
Instead of running to the store at the last-minute fighting hordes of other frantic shoppers buying boards to protect their windows, you can have hurricane shutters installed in your home before a threat is imminent. Permanently installed on the outside of your home, roll-down storm and security shutters come with smooth, manual cranks that can be upgraded to the fully synchronized electric motor drive for maintenance-free operation. Should you have to evacuate, these shutters will provide not only storm protection but also protection from vandals and looters that take advantage of homes they know are unoccupied.
Roll-down shutters from Hurricaneshuttersflorida.com offer an elegant design solution with minimal visual impact. Constructed of the finest grade of aluminum for maximum impact resistance and durability, our roll down shutters are specially designed to provide maximum strength and insulation from sun, storm, heat, noise, weather extremes and unwanted intruders.
Roll- down shutters are a cost-effective way to provide security and protect exposed glass from vandalism and intruders. They are retractable in order to provide security when you need it most, and virtually disappear during operating hours so the aesthetic of your property is maintained. During business or school hours the shutters can be fully opened and after hours they can be deployed protecting staff and students while not making the building look like a barracks during the day.
Roll-down shutters from Hurricanneshuttersflorida.com add substantial value to your home or business and will pay for themselves through more efficient heating and cooling of your rooms, as well as insurance breaks from the protection they will provide from unwanted intruders and vandals .Our roll-down shutters have been engineered to meet the most stringent wind codes in the country and have been reviewed and accepted by the Miami-Dade County product control division, Florida Building Code, and the International Building Code.
In order to ensure that buildings have effective hurricane protection, the Florida Building Code (FBC) for example, has important standards of performance for windows and shutters in areas at risk from hurricanes. Impact tests are used to test whether the components meet the hurricane protection requirements. By simulating flying debris that can damage a building during a hurricane, the objects used to simulate debris differ in length, weight and impact speed according to the desired certification. For example, a piece of lumber with a length of 2.4 m (approx. 7.9 feet) and a weight of 4.1 kg (approx. 9 pounds) is launched at a test object – such as a window or a shutter – at a speed of 86 km/h (approx. 53 miles/h). Our shutters have passed the tests.
