hey there quick question about measuring door openings for roll down shutters

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

Q: which is correct: measuring the distance between door frame to door frame which for a standard door is 36″ or measure from outside of the jamb to outside of the jamb which would be about 37.5″

Rolling Shutters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

The hurricane season is on is and is here to stay for the next four months at least. If you haven’t already installed hurricane protection, then do so now. Hurricane Shutters Florida is one of the leading online sites that offers the most competitive quotes for rolling shutters in the city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Rolling shutters are the subject of some of the most impressive advancements in hurricane shutter technology. Modern roll-down shutters exceed code compliance when it comes to protection from hurricane winds. What’s more, gone are the days when roll down shutters meant being locked out of or inside your own home from lack of visibility and ventilation. The roll up shutters of today that you can purchase through Hurricane Shutters Florida offer not only ventilation and insulation but also visibility with view ports that have a clear span reaching twenty four feet.

The best situation to be in is to have these shutters installed during the construction of a new house rather than have them retrofitted. It is common sense, really. You get that much more leverage and scope to make these shutters as unobtrusive and invisible as possible. These shutters are operated by crank or by motor.

These shutters take very little space and once installed do not need to be removed and stored. With a little oiling and greasing these shutters roll down nicely on the tracks installed as quietly as possible. The cap and bracket system ensures a snug fit, some shutters can be rolled really tight and thus fit into a smaller box on top.

Factors that affect the cost of hurricane shutters include the size and quality of components, weight, and area to be covered.
