Hurricane Shutters: Severe Weather Protection & Architectural Window Supply

Hurricanes have become more prevalent in recent years, especially along the East Coast. Is your home prepared?

Hurricane Shutters

Storm-rated hurricane shutters are the best way to add additional protection to your home.

Hurricane storm-rated shutters incorporate the protection of the most advanced, durable shutter materials, a strong polycarbonate layer, and storm bars. The shutter offering includes options that meet the IRC, IBC and State of Florida building codes. These storm-rated shutters have been tested by an independent test laboratory that is certified by the State of Florida and Miami-Dade County. An outside Professional Engineer has also certified that the storm shutters were tested in accordance with the testing protocols identified.

Architectural Window Supply and Atlantic Premium Shutters introduce a new line of hurricane storm-rated shutters that are both impact-rated and beautiful.

For extreme functionality and protection for coastal homes at risk from storms, both Architectural and Classic Collection shutter designs are available in hurricane storm-rated versions (Does not apply to arch and radius top shutters). Safety features include:

  1. A 1/8″ thick polycarbonate panel is permanently attached to the back of each shutter, remaining hidden when shutters are in the open position, and facing outward for impact protection when shutters are in the closed position.
  2. Strong aluminum storm bars are used to secure the shutters closed in Horizontal (dual bar) exterior or interior Storm Bar Systems.
