Advance Deployment Time Needed
Since the system is permanently mounted it can be closed very quickly, allowing more time to prepare for evacuation or sheltering in place.
Water Penetration Resistance
May reduce water penetration by reducing the amount of water being blown against windows or doors. However, may not significantly reduce water penetration under high pressures, unless mounted on the edge of a porch or balcony several feet away from the opening being protected.
Porous or Non-Porous
Does not keep wind pressure from building up on windows or doors. Generally all systems are considered non-porous.
Pull the shutter sections together to shut and engage either the locking pins, locks or both depending upon the system’s design.
Windstorm Insurance Discounts
Qualifies for discounts if all openings are protected with a FBC or Miami-Dade approved system.
