Our team at Port City Hurricane Shutters wants to help you be prepared to weather any storm, and we offer the high-quality hurricane shutters you need to do just that. Of course, there are many types of hurricane shutters on the market today, and it can be difficult to tell which one is best for your needs. In this article, we’ll provide a brief overview of the different types of hurricane shutters that we offer in order to help you make an informed decision.
- Rolling Shutters. This type of hurricane shutters roll up and down like a window shade. They offer robust protection due to their durable construction, and you can keep them rolled up and out of the way so as not to block your view whenever they are not in use. They are also effective for home security should you leave town, provide a blackout ambiance for late sleepers, and help with AC energy efficiency!
- Bermuda Shutters. Bermuda hurricane shutters are also known as Bahama shutters due to their extensive use in these two tropical areas. They attach to the window at the top and open vertically, lifting from the bottom. This means that most of the shutter’s length will continue to shade the window even when the shutter is open, which makes them ideal for hot environments. They also add an extra style element to the exterior of any home!
- Accordion Shutters. Another type of hurricane shutters that we offer is known as accordion shutters. These shutters need to be unfolded and locked manually, but once they are secured, they offer solid, reliable protection and are especially useful for shielding sliding glass doors against the high-speed winds of hurricanes and other tropical storms.
