ABC Awnings offers multiple Hurricane Shutter solutions.

Most Homes have to utilize more than one type of shutter due to space and design. It is not uncommon to have accordion shutters on the windows, Roll-Ups on the sliding doors and storm panels on the standard entry doors.

BERTHA™ Roll Form Storm Panel System

Removable panels are made of a variety of materials. The three main materials are made of steel, aluminum or clear polycarbonate. Panels are attached with anchors top and bottom or by tracks. Panel tracks make assembly and installation faster and easier.

Storm panels are considered one of the most economical choices for hurricane and storm protection. They offer substantial protection at a lower cost of other storm protection products. Clear polycarbonate panels are the most expensive of the three types. Aluminum panels are lighter than steel panels.

Panels are stackable and require a dry place for storage, usually a garage or carport. For assembly, do a dry run early to see how long and difficult the process is for you. This will also give you the opportunity to fix something before it's too late.

Accordion Shutter Systems

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. They are installed beside windows and doors, balconies, and large patio openings.

Accordion shutters are convenient, and easily closed within minutes. They lock from the inside or outside for increased security and protection. Accordions are made of aluminum and should be cleaned and lubricated yearly. Accordion shutters are considered one of the strongest shutters available.

Roll Shutter Systems

When built into a new home Roll Shutters are virtually invisible and can be closed via electric motor. While in the closed position, they not only provide storm protection, they also protect from forced entry and theft. The system can be activated manually by crank or remotely using a motorized system.

Bahama & Colonial Shutters

Bahama Shutters

    Bahama Shutters are similar in design to the Colonial Shutter. Bahama shutters cover windows and are hinged at the top giving the house a Bahamian or tropical appearance. The Bahama shutter also reduces the amount of sunlight entering the window. Simply lowering and latching the shutter provides storm protection.

Colonial Shutters

    Colonial Shutters are hinged on the side and open to the outside of the window promoting the look of a Colonial Estate. Before the storm arrives, the shutters are simply closed and latched with hinges and or locking bars.
