They know a little something about storm protection in the Bahaman Islands and that’s why we have Bahama Hurricane Shutters.
Bahama shutters are hinged to the top of the window frame, and they can be pulled down over your windows before a storm. They’re designed to keep both water and wind away from your windows. Easily adjustable up to 60-degrees, Bahama Shutters are custom built for each window and can be color-matched to suit your tastes.
Will they keep your home safe during a hurricane?
Bahama shutters vary in terms of the amount of protection that they offer from wind and rain. However, some of them are designed to offer protection against the strongest storms. The products that we offer are built to offer protection against powerful hurricane winds. Some products are also built to withstand the impact of flying debris during a storm.
Where can you install Bahama shutters?
They can be used to protect any window frame on your home. The wind direction will change during a hurricane, which means that you should close all the shutters of your home before the arrival of hurricane winds.
Most homeowners feel that it’s best to place them on south-facing windows. That’s because these shutters cannot be fully opened. Thus, using them on south-facing windows will help to block the strongest sunlight, which can lower your heating costs.
What shutter styles are available?
There are different styles that you can choose from. However, they will give your home a beachy, tropical look. This is perfect for many coastal residents. They can be made out of natural wood, metal, and composite materials. Bahama shutters used to protect homes from hurricanes are typically made from hardwoods and other strong materials.
How do you use Bahama shutters before a hurricane?
Bahama shutters are not designed to be fully lifted upwards. They are designed to be lifted to a 45-degree angle, but it is possible for them to be fully closed during a storm. This ensures that they are able to protect your home from the high winds and intense rainfall of a hurricane.
