This custom storm solution was designed for a general contractor in Raleigh, NC. He was looking for a storm protection solution that would be both strong, easy-to-deploy and also esthetically pleasing. Our combination of bahama and accordion shutters as well as white aluminum panels provided just that.
Bertha™ Storm Panels offer value and protection. These systems include removable panels made of aluminum, steel and clear poly-carbonate Panels are cut to size and attached with anchors or tracks for easier assembly and installation. Our storm panels are tested and approved for most areas.
Accordion Shutters are permanently installed for year round protection. They fold back compactly similar to a louvered door. They are installed beside windows and doors, balconies, and large patio openings. Accordion shutters are convenient, and easily closed within minutes. They lock from the inside or outside for increased security and protection. Accordions are made of aluminum and should be cleaned and lubricated yearly. Accordion shutters are considered one of the strongest shutters available.
Unlike conventional Bahama Shutters, our FullView Bahama Shutters employ articulating louvers that offer the best outward views, with the ability to close and prohibit large volumes of air from pressurizing the structure. Since our shutters are permanently affixed to your home or business, they require no storage space. These one-pieced louvered shutters attach directly above the window and prop open easily and quickly to provide shade and are ready to face any storm conditions within a few minutes when louvered and secured to the wall. The shutters can be made storm ready by just one person.
The accordion and bahamas allowed the homeowner to protect themselves from an incoming storm in an instant, and the white panels allowed the home to be displayed in a beautiful fashion- even if the shutters had to be deployed for a long period of time.
