FAQ

Are your shutters and screens approved under Florida's building code?

Yes. Several of our models fall under the “hurricane shutters” category under Florida's building code. For more information, please visit our Applications section.

What colors can I choose from? (Roll Shutters)

We offer a wide range of standardized color choices, from white to black. We also offer customized color options upon request. 

Roll Shutter, Accordion Shutters, Hurricane Shutters, Storm Panels, Hurricane Screens: what is the difference?

While these shutters differ in style or design, each of these works to protect your home from torrential rains and hurricane-force winds. In addition, each of these products is tested to comply with numerous building codes (e.g. FBC and IBC).

Do I need hurricane shutters?

Absolutely! Hurricane shutters provide the highest level of protection against the elements. For more information, please visit our Applications section.

When do I need to use storm bars?

Storm bars used to be necessary for certain widths. However, newer products such as our Barracuda and Magnum shutters use our new end retention systems. This erases the need for storm bars. 

Do you have a dealer near me?

The chances are highly likely! Just to be sure, however, you can contact us or access our Find A Dealer page to locate nearby dealers. Simply enter your zip code.

When should I use a motor with gear override?

Motorized shutters and screens with gear override should be used in case of a power outage. They may also prove ideal for creating emergency exits.

How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?

Special switches can operate up to two shutters. Somfy’s RTS or IGC technology could, virtually, operate an unlimited number of shutters with only a single switch! The technology could also be modified to control individual or groups of motors from multiple locations. This technology can be incorporated into most home automation and z-wave systems.
