Accordion shutters are used to protect the windows of homes and businesses from hurricanes. Not only that, but they can also be used to protect the garage and shed doors during a storm as well.
What is the appearance of Accordion shutters?
Accordion shutters are designed to open from either the middle or stretch from one side of the window to another. These shutters have multiple hinges, which are designed to fold. Accordion shutters can come with or without slats. However, the models that are used to protect homes from hurricanes often have no slats, which keeps airflow away from your windows.
Accordion shutters can be used on just about any home. There are many styles of them to choose from, which means that you’ll be able to find a version of them that’s right for your home. This makes it possible to get the right combination of protection and style for your house.

How are Accordion shutters used?
Always make sure that your Accordion shutters are properly installed. After they are installed, it’s important to ensure that you close them prior to the arrival of strong winds.
