Rolling Shutters are permanently installed and can be used throughout the year offering complete storm protection, security, sunshade and noise reduction for any window, door or patio opening. Available in extruded aluminum or double-walled foam filled aluminum, these shutters can be easily controlled from the interior or exterior of the structure using a hand crank or electric motor. The shutters can be rolled to any desired position with ventilation when not entirely closed. Whether you're preparing for the storm or just protecting your home while you are away the roll shutters will save you time when you are ready to close up and go.
Rolling shutters use a series of slats that roll up into a housing for storage. The slats, when rolled down, are guided by tracks on each side. Each installation must have adequate space for side tracks up to 3" each side and room for a hood at the top, 6" - 12" depending on the height of the opening.
