As your leading aluminum shutter manufacturer in Orlando, we go above and beyond to create a superior product. Unlike many companies, we manufacture shutters through a welding process, eliminating the need for screws or rivets. The result is a more durable and longer-lasting product that you feel proud to supply to customers.
We offer decorative, hurricane-rated, and architectural shutters in Bahama or colonial designs. Each shutter receives a powder coat that is usually challenging to apply because of all the edges and small surface areas. But with new in-house capabilities, the process is more accurate, faster, and more cost-efficient, which will reflect nicely on the cost of shutters.
Hurricane Rated Shutters
Living in Orlando, hurricane protection is a necessity. In the case of a severe storm, you want peace of mind that harsh rain and winds won’t leave your family in a dangerous situation. Avoiding potentially expensive damages is also a priority for many.
We offer two kinds of protective shutters, the HV Bahama Hurricane Shutter and the HV Colonial Hurricane Shutter. Furthermore, each shutter is built to meet the Florida building code for Non-High Velocity Zones.
The differences between these shutters are, of course, style, but you extend the width of these shutters in different ways too. For the Bahama style, multiple center mullions are used to expand to a maximum of 120 inches. You extend the colonial style by using up to 4 folding panels.
Below are the hurricane-rated shutter specifications.
- Assembled from 6063-T6 aluminum extrusions
- Wall thickness of 0.78
- Welded with 100% penetration
- Frame dimensions – 2.33″ wide – depth of 2″
- Blades are extrusions from 6063-T6 aluminum
- Wall thickness of .045 with a 1/4″ screw boss at each end
- Blades have a hollow race track shape
- Height of 2″
- Thickness of .375
To completely hide the weld, we thoroughly sand and grind down corner welds on both the front and back to acquire a smooth finish. Once complete, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
Decorative Or Architectural Shutters
There are foil and Z blade options for both Bahama and colonial-style shutters. The Z blade is the most economical of the options, so if you’re on a stricter budget, this product may work well for you. When it comes to style, Bahama shutters are a trendy option. They influence an island design that appeals to many Floridians.
We offer a beautiful selection of durable Bahama shutters to choose from and add a pretreatment with an epoxy primer to all shutters. Any aluminum shutter manufacturer highly recommends this primer to combat damages from salty environments like ours.
Here are the specifications for the decorative Z blade and foil blade shutters.
- Made from 6063-T6 aluminum
- Wall thickness of 0.045
- 2″ wide with a depth of 1 3/8″
- Made from 6063-T6 aluminum
- The same wall thickness of o.045
- Height of 2 1/8″
- Thickness of .437
- Uniform wall thickness of 0.062
- Each blade is captured within the wall frame, so during high winds, the shutter can remain structurally sound
Enjoy A Simple Installation Process
As the leading aluminum shutter manufacturer, we go above and beyond by shipping out installation-ready products. For example, we pre-drill mounting holes, and everything is cut to the desired lengths.
This makes the installation process much more efficient because you won’t need many tools, and the clean-up process is a breeze. Time is valuable, and we intend to save yours by taking the extra steps in-house to make sure shutters are ready to go.
How We Ensure Customer Satisfaction
There are product warranties available for 3, 5, and 7 years. It all depends on whether there was primer or other coating options applied. We’re also a part of a quality assurance program requiring us to keep measurements from extrusions.
Our error rate is virtually zero, but if there are concerns or questions, a team member is available to speak with you. We understand how important it is to keep an open line of communication, so know we are on top of any customer concerns.
