Aluminum Hurricane Shutters Furthermore, since DIY Hurricane Supply shutters are temporary, they do not alter the aesthetics of your home. This is a benefit to homeowners who take pride in the appearance of their home, while the simple storage (much smaller storage space compared to plywood) provides the convenience customers desire. Similarly, the simple installation is another aspect of our products' convenience - a single person can complete the installation without assistance. Our manual design further ensures safety, security, and convenience because it can be installed and uninstalled during power outages, which are frequently an issue during hurricane prep and clean up. Moreover, the Lexan and combination shutters make clean up easier by providing natural lighting inside during power outages; if residents are not in an evacuation area, this is equally useful while weathering the storm.

Most importantly, the safety of our hurricane shutters is superior to many other styles of shutters. Our shutter panels are tested to winds up to 150 mph (this protects against the winds of a Category 4 hurricane), and meet many municipal codes and regulations. Likewise, we offer hardware that meets BOCA (aka NBC or IBC) requirements. Many homeowners try to save money by using plywood shutters, but they often don't know that plywood shutters do not meet local codes and regulations. Safety and security should never be something sacrificed for cost, which is why we offer superior quality for less! In fact, our shutters exceed the regulations set after Hurricanes Hugo and Andrew, which specify protection versus 110 mph winds; our shutters are tested to 150 mph winds. The experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association point out that most of the building failures during Andrew were a result of the lack of storm shutters; Hurricane Shutters wind speed test of winds up to 150mph the pressure that builds up within a home from a broken window or door will often result in roof or internal wall failure. The other problem is that plywood merely covers the glass, while the frame is as much at risk for failure as the glass itself. Our shutters protect the whole window structure. Proper installation is an important aspect of the effectiveness of any safety or security measure, so we also offer multiple installation options for the most effectual protection possible.
        Finally, state and local legislation has changed in recent years to require the installation of shutters in certain situations. Florida law, for example, requires the installation of hurricane shutters when a roof is being repaired, or when a building permit is issued; if this process is not followed, the homeowner risks losing homeowner's insurance on the property. Check your local state and municipal legislation to ensure compliance with all guidelines.
