Accordion Shutters-Caribbean Islands
Hurricane shutters are an important part of hurricane preparedness in the Caribbean, as the region is prone to tropical storms and hurricanes. Hurricane shutters are designed to protect windows and doors from high winds, flying debris, and water intrusion during a storm.
Accordion shutters: These shutters fold accordion-style and are mounted on either side of the window or door. They are made of metal or polycarbonate and can be locked in place for added security. Accordion Shutters are a popular product among our customers in the Caribbean for their durability and ease-of-use. When a storm is coming your way, you don’t want to wonder if your shutters are strong enough to withstand the wind and flying debris. And you don’t want to be struggling with storm shields that are hard to put up right before a storm. Accordion shutters allow you to quickly and easily secure your windows, doors, patio, and other openings on your property in Barbados. Heavy-duty nylon wheels let these shutters glide open and closed along their track. Accordion shutters lock securely at their center, and fold to each side of the opening when not in use.
Accordion shutters can be used on most openings, on both commercial and residential buildings. Our accordion shutters are built to adhere to the most stringent wind codes, and are made of extruded aluminum that can withstand the elements.
Metal panels: These are the most popular type of hurricane shutters in the Caribbean. They are made of corrugated metal and are installed over windows and doors with screws.
No matter what type of hurricane shutter you choose, it is important to have them installed by a professional to ensure they are installed correctly and provide the maximum protection during a storm. Additionally, it is important to have a plan in place for how you will secure your property and evacuate if necessary during a hurricane.
Accordion shutters can also function as security shutters for homes, hotels, restaurants, and stores in Barbados. These shutters completely cover windows, doors, and storefronts and have specially designed key locks. If you want to lock up your store overnight to secure your home when you leave the island, accordion shutters will do the job!
