Clamshell Awning Description:
Available as a non-impact product, clamshell awnings have long been a very popular product with Floridians to protect windows and interior furnishings from the sun’s harmful ultra-violet rays. These shutters are a smart choice for those in need of extra shade or those looking to lower their cooling costs. They are light weight and easy to adjust. They also allow you to keep your windows open during light rain storms. When in the down position they offer full protection from the elements. We offer them in a variety of colors or white with a variety of stripe colors.Widths range up to 20 feet with projections up to 6 feet.

We wanted to self-install so we bought accordions and roll downs from Empire Construction.We measured our window and patio and sent Empire the specs.The shutters were an exact match.Installation is very doable for two reasonably mechanical people. In this case it was only one mechanical person and some extra hands. The accordions were a breeze as installation was mostly marking holes for spots, drilling holes, and screwing them in.Our accordions have locking pins that hold them open and act as a second lock when closed. Even if a projectile breaks the lock the rods will keep the shutters closed.These shutters are Bertha HV1. They are High Velocity Hurricane Zone Approved. Having seen a wide range of shutters we are extremely happy with the quality of the product we received!!

I installed fourteen aluminum accordion shutters which I purchased from Empire Construction.I could not be happier with my choice.The shutters are made very well and are powder-coated.The purchase included all of the required hardware which was powder-coated to match the shutters.The company is very customer-oriented.Michael and his staff were wonderful.They were attentive, helpful, and a delight to work with.The installation video on the website made the installation very easy.I highly recommend Empire Construction to anyone considering a purchase of hurricane shutters. Thanks again. Please say Hi to everyone,
