Accordion shutters are used for protection and security. Our Lowcountry Hurricane Protection & Shutter Accordions have been thoroughly tested and are manufactured to comply with the new ASTME 1996/1886 standard and state building codes.
Our accordion shutters are made up of powder-coated extruded aluminum slats that glide in and out of the fastened track on the top and bottom of the opening. When the accordions are in the closed position, they lock tight with stainless steel thumb-turn locks. This offers protection against high-velocity winds. Our accordions have been tested to withstand a Category 5 hurricane.
Accordion shutters not only protect your home or business from the elements, but they also provide additional security against intruders. When the accordion shutters are fully closed and locked from the inside of the opening, the shutter becomes a strong physical barrier to intruders or vandals.
