Colonial Hurricane Shutters These shutters can provide aesthetic quality for the enhancement of almost any home. Colonials are permanently mounted shutters that are hinged on the side and fold back into a closed position. The louvered panels are available in single, bifold or trifold design. Whether in the front of the home only or along the sides, colonial shutters add character in a dramatic way. In the closed position, this type of shutter provides security and privacy. Like the Bahama shutter, Colonial shutters must be deployed from the outside, and meet Florida Building Code requirements.
