There are many solutions to protect your windows and doors on your home from storms, hurricane force winds, wind driven rain, etc. The term "Hurricane Shutters" usually applies to Roll Shutters or Accordion Shutters that can withstand hurricane force winds and are rated to such conditions, i.e. they are tested and comply with various building codes, e.g.: IBC - International Building Code
Whether you use roll shutters or accordion shutters they do much more than just protect you from hurricane force winds. See our solution page for for more benefits.
Depending where you are located, you might need shutters that are rated for different wind speeds: See our wind load map what your area is rated.
Depending on the product standard colors are white, cream, beige, gray, ivory, bronze, silver and brown. Many non standard colors and custom color options are available upon request.
Special switches will operate up to 2 shutters. Somfy's RTS or IGC Technology can be installed to operate virtually an unlimited number of shutters with only one switch. Somfy Systems can also be adapted to control one or more motors in groups and/or individually from one or more locations. In addition, we can interface with most home automation and z-wave systems.
