High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) Accordion shutters offer superior protection for windows and doors and can be used to enclose balconies, lanais and patios to protect furnishings and multiple openings. Accordion shutters are permanently affixed to the structure so they provide quick storm preparation. They are easy to operate and can be opened or closed in very little time. Accordion shutters can be locked from outside or inside, making them an optimal option for second story openings. Accordion shutters are constructed from aluminum and are available in a variety of colors to accent your exterior.
Accordion Shutters are permanently installed for year round protection. They fold back compactly similar to a louvered door and are one or two piece shutters. Accordions should be cleaned and lubricated yearly. Accordion shutters are considered one of the strongest shutters available.
