Removable panels are made of a variety of materials. The three main materials are made of steel, aluminum or clear polycarbonate. Panels are attached with anchors top and bottom or by tracks. Panel tracks make assembly and installation faster and easier.
Storm panels are considered one of the most economical choices for hurricane and storm protection. They offer substantial protection at a lower cost of other storm protection products. Clear polycarbonate panels are the most expensive of the three types. Aluminum panels are lighter than steel panels.
Panels are stackable and require a dry place for storage, usually a garage or carport. For assembly, do a dry run early to see how long and difficult the process is for you. This will also give you the opportunity to fix something before it's too late. See pics on the Photo Gallery
Bahama Shutters are similar in design to the Colonial Shutter. Bahama shutters cover windows and are hinged at the top giving the house a Bahamian or tropical appearance. The Bahama shutter also reduces the amount of sunlight entering the window. Simply lowering and latching the shutter provides storm protection. See pics on the Photo Gallery
Colonial Shutters are hinged on the side and open to the outside of the window promoting the look of a Colonial Estate. Before the storm arrives, the shutters are simply closed and latched with hinges and or locking bars. See pics on the Photo Gallery
