Weather Any Storm with Quality Accordion Shutters

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

  If you live in an area affected by hurricanes, it’s important to take the necessary precautions to protect your property from the wrath of Mother Nature. A big misconception is that plywood is an acceptable substitute for hurricane shutters. Although plywood can be used to cover your windows like shutters can, that’s where the similarities end.

  Hurricane accordion shutters from hurricaneshuttersflorida, are engineered to withstand hurricane-force winds, and their durability meets the Miami-Dade County product control division, Florida Building Code, and the International Building Code. The same can’t be said for plywood. Plywood is a last-minute solution if you have nothing better, but it should not be thought of as a permanent solution to hurricane protection.

  Our accordion shutters, on the other hand, are made from high-grade materials that are impact resistant. They also have specially engineered features such as the angle of the accordion shutters that have been designed to deflect flying debris, minimize and disburse the amount of force upon impact to help you weather any storm or hurricane.

  Plywood is a flat surface therefor, when something encounters it at high speed, which is what happens when there are hurricane-force winds, all the energy is directed toward the initial point of impact instead of being disbursed. This can impede its function and cause the window its covering to shatter.  Once one window breaks, the pressure inside your home or business rises dramatically which can lead to roof failure, water damage and risk of other items being hurled inside with a dangerous force.

  The last thing anyone wants to do during a hurricane, is construct a makeshift barrier once a window has broken. At www.hurricaneshuttersflorida, hurricane protection is a serious matter and it’s where homeowners, contractors and business owners turn to when they want to invest in the best storm and security protection available.
