Why Use Hurricane Shutters?

Shutter and Awning systems have been in use for over 200 years. They can be designed to provide protection from wind and water, increase security, block solar heat from the sun, increase privacy, and some are designed for purely decorative use. Here we focus on their impact resistance and the test standards that have been developed in the last 20 years to assess their ability to provide protection from windborne debris. Shutter systems may also provide some additional protection from water damage. However, this is not their primary purpose nor are they tested in any way to determine a specific level of water penetration protection. Impact resistant shutter systems are designed to protect the openings in a house from the type of failure that will lead to a huge increase in internal pressure in the house and reduce the likelihood of hurricane propelled flying debris from entering through the openings.


Hurricane shutters are installed to protect the building entirely. Think about a powerful storm. Many foreign objects can threaten your home due to strong winds. The main cause of hurricane damage behind storm surge is the penetration of the windows and doors from flying debris. Wind alone can cause damage, but it is mainly caused by the debris breaking windows and doors that allow the wind to enter the home causing lift on the roof and outward pressure on the walls.


By protecting the glazed openings and inswing doors you are helping prevent the loss of the roof. Many building codes have changed, and some form of hurricane protection for your windows is now a requirement. Although plywood and oriented strand board are allowed for a Certificate of Occupancy, they do not meet testing requirements and will fail much quicker than a rated system.
