Hurricane Shutters & Screens
The addition of hurricane shutters protects the openings in your home from hurricane force winds and, more importantly, flying debris. From basic storm panels, to remotely operated slat rolldowns, we carry a full line of shutters to meet any need. Our company locally fabricates most of the products listed below, eliminating delays and the middle man. We also fabricate for other shutter companies in the State of Florida. We are happy to answer any questions and, if needed, to come out to your home at no charge for more detailed information and free estimates.
ACCORDION SHUTTERSThese shutters are permanently mounted to the building. To use, simply pull them closed from both sides and lock them. Because of the key lock mechanism, these shutters are excellent for security protection as well as hurricane protection. Accordion shutters are made of aluminum, and are more expensive than panel shutters, but less than most other types.
Crimsafe is a completely unique hurricane product. It is a powder coated stainless steel mesh that looks like your existing screen. It is always hurricane ready, with nothing needed on your part, yet still gives you full view and light. In addition, it also keeps out would be intruders, whether of the two legged variety, or the four legged one. See our dedicated Crimsafe tab above for more information.
These shutters are permanently mounted to the building. Like bahama shutters, colonial shutters add a distinct architectural look to the home. When severe weather approaches, simply unlock the left and right sides from the wall, close, and add a horizontal reinforcement bar. Colonial shutters are made of aluminum, and are one of the most expensive types of shutters.
Also referred to as “Key West shutters”, these shutters are permanently mounted to the building. Bahamas are unique in that they provide a constant source of interior shading against direct sunlight, while still allowing you to see outside. In addition, they add a distinct architectural look to the home. When severe weather approaches, simply lock the shutters flat against the wall. Bahama shutters are made of aluminum, and are available in either the heavy duty hurricane model, or the less expensive storm model.
(The storm model still provides the decoration and shading, but is not designed for hurricane protection.)
These panels are installed only when needed, and take up far less storage room than plywood shutters. They are the least expensive type of shutter, but require the most labor to install and remove. Panel shutters are available in galvanized steel or aluminum. Steel is the least expensive, while the aluminum is lighter and easier to handle.
These shutters are permanently mounted to the building. Roll down shutters are housed in a box above each opening and ride up and down in a track on either side of the opening. They may be manually operated (through the use of a crank rod) or electrically operated (simply push a switch on your wall – the motor does the rest). These shutters are excellent for security protection as well as hurricane protection. They also can completely darken a room, making them great for watching TV or sleeping in late. Roll down shutters are made of aluminum, and are one of the most expensive types of shutters.
Accurate Group is proud to be a Force 12 dealer for over ten years now and for selling/installing the largest Force12 job in Florida to date. These screens either store away when not in use, or can be tube mounted above an opening for regular use against wind and rain. Wind screens are ideal for lanais and large front entryways, as well as commercial buildings, fire stations, storefronts, etc. They work by deflecting flying debris before it strikes the building. The extremely strong yet flexible fabric provides an effective barrier against the elements while allowing outward visibility and easy entrance and exit. Wind screens are made from woven polypropylene, and are similar in price to accordion shutters.
