Four Key Benefits for Hurricane Shutters
- Protection from Storm Violence
Today most prudent home and business owners want protection against the ravages of hurricanes and violent storms. Anyone who experienced the hurricanes of recent years, not to forget Hurricane Andrew in 1993, knows how frightening and damaging Mother Nature can be when unleashing her full fury.
At Dependable Shutter & Glass, our quality shutter product systems have proven to be an effective barrier between a storm’s wind-driven rain and your building. Tested for wind loads of up to 200 mph, all of our hurricane shutters - Roll-Down Shutters, Accordion Shutters, and Aluminum Panel Shutters - will disperse rain from your windows and entrances in hurricane conditions. All of our storm protection products meet or exceed Dade County Building Code.
When is hurricane season? Hurricane season begins June 1st and extends through November 30. According to the experts, an average of several major hurricanes will hit the U.S. East Coast during this period. Interestingly, while the strongest Category 5 storms threaten to cause the most devastation, smaller storms can be equally or more damaging to property. In 1996, for example, Category 3 Hurricane Fran is on record as the third most costly storm in history. Being prepared for any size storm is always the best strategy.
- Protection from Burglars and Vandals
Accordion and Roll-Down Shutters provide an effective deterrent to burglars. When in place and locked, the shutters make it near impossible for intruders to enter. Studies reveal that most burglars will pass by homes with shutters and look for easier victims. Shutters also provide a barrier of protection against vandalism.
- Noise Reduction
Roll-Down Shutters offer the benefit of being a protective barrier from unwanted noise. These shutters absorb and reflect sound waves away from your home or business.
- Save on Energy Bills and Protect Interior Furnishings
Our impact-resistant Safety Window Film can help you save on monthly energy bills by reducing up to 76% of solar heat from entering interior spaces, greatly reducing cooling costs. At the same time, the Window Film eliminates 99% of harmful ultraviolet radiation to protect fabrics and furnishings. Depending on usage, Accordion and Roll-Down Shutters can protect against high-energy costs and solar bleaching on home furnishings as well.
