Why You Should Choose Storm Smart of Southeast Florida Storm Smart of Southeast Florida is your best source for high-quality hurricane-proof household and commercial applications because of our commitment to selling and installing high-quality materials. You can rely on a host of benefits when you purchase one of our accordion shutters: • Blades and Centermates: All of our blades are made from hollow, post-construction extruded aluminum materials for maximum durability. We offer several thickness options, from .050 to .062. Which one you choose should depend on your property and other factors. Also, our accordions consume roughly 30 percent less space than most options. They’re more reliable because of the deeper corrugation, more significant hinge points, and pin diameter. • Roller Housing: The roller housing is just as important as the blades and additional components within the accordion shutter system. Our products include housing constructed from die-cast Zamac®. The housing is finished with DacroShield®, which delivers resistance to the salt and corrosion that accompanies storms where salt from the ocean swirls through the area. Finally, we secure the wheel with industrial-strength fasteners. • Wheels and Bushings: Our accordion shutters have fiberglass nylon wheels and bushings, which act as immense reinforcement factors. They ensure strength, long life, and low maintenance. They have rounded wheels, which allows the shutters to accommodate curved areas. Finally, our manufacturers construct them, so they withstand wear-and-tear, ensuring you’ll never have to replace them. • Header & Bottom Tracks: We can mount our heavy-duty aluminum header and bottom tracks in a variety of ways, including ceiling, wall, walkover, and build-out designs. Additionally, we felt-line the tracks for noise reduction and ease of operation. The strong header and bottom tracks provide maximum protection in high winds. • Locks: Key locks can be installed inside or outside for privacy and security. The key lock provides more protection from intruders. We can also install an optional heavy-duty storefront lock on commercial properties, which is also operable from both the inside and outside.
