BOCA vs. Non-BOCA Hardware
BOCA (also known as the National Building Code and International Building Code) refers to a set of standards established by the Building Officials Code Administration. BOCA hardware standards for hurricane shutters require no more than a 6" space between hardware, while non-BOCA hardware can be installed with up to a 12" space. There is no other difference between the hardware.
