Accordion hurricane shutters are the most popular choice for code approved aluminum shutters because they are strong, affordable, and can be quickly opened and closed.
Not all accordions are created equal. The 6.8 is the most advanced accordion shutter system on the market today. By combining thicker blades, knuckles, and tracks together with stronger and more durable components, you are protected by the latest in accordion hurricane shutter technology.
Slim design – The tightest blade stack in the industry makes for a less obtrusive and more attractive product.
Corrosion-resistant – For long-lasting performance, 6.8 accordion shutters are manufactured from stainless steel and aluminium to provide a durable and secure hurricane barrier that is permanently attached to your home.
Fast and simple locking - A typical home with accordions takes about 10 to 15 minutes to secure prior to a storm and allows home and business owners to focus on evacuations and other required preparations. Impact resistant windows and electric rolling shutters are effortless or quicker to deploy but are also more expensive. Florida storm panels by comparison can take hours to put up and about half that time to take down.
Lock from the inside or outside – Accordion storm shutters are a safe and cost effective solution for upstairs windows and sliding glass doors where the ability to close and lock your shutters from the inside is of the utmost importance.
High-Rise version available (H.R.) – The Eyewall Armor 6.8 High-Rise (H.R) Accordion System shares the same features as the standard 6.8 Accordion hurricane shutters. However, the 6.8 H.R. Accordion System is engineered specifically for high-rise, high-performance structures requiring much higher wind load resistance. The H.R. system is capable of spans up to 15’ 6” in height and tested to pressures beyond 300 psf. wind loads which translate to wind speeds in excess of 300 mph.
Locking rods are not required
