The Bahamas awning shutter adds a decorative look to hurricane protection. This style is very popular in the islands, where the shutter is used to shade and keep rain out of screened openings.
After initial installation, it takes 10 to 15 minutes per shutter depending upon the type of system selected.
Does not significantly reduce water penetration. Open louver systems will allow water inside, which creates opportunity for window and door leaks.
Does not keep wind pressure from building up on windows or doors. Generally all systems are considered non-porous.
Qualifies for discounts if all openings are protected with a FBC or Miami-Dade approved system.
Shutters use a telescoping arm with a locking thumb screw to hold them open.
