This beautiful oceanfront home was owned by a prominent West Virginian CEO. After assessing their storm protection needs, we came to the conclusion that a combination of Lexan and accordion shutters was the optimal solution.
Developed in 1953, Lexan polycarbonate resin is an amorphous engineering thermoplastic, which is characterized by high levels of mechanical, optical, electrical and thermal properties. Lexan resin is one of the most widely used engineered materials in the world and has contributed to product revolutions in virtually every industry.
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.
The result is pictured, and is as beautiful as it is strong.
