These one- or two-piece hurricane shutters are housed beside the windows or doors when not in use.
These hurricane shutters offer lifelong protection for windows, doors, sliding glass, balconies, and lanais. Many homeowners choose accordion shutters for larger openings in their home. When you consider cost and ease of use, it is no wonder accordion shutters are the most popular type of hurricane shutters. This type of shutter stacks besides the opening when not in use and unfolds accordion style to cover and protect during a storm.

The vertical blades mean you can install these over windows on any
width and length. You can also install them to roll right, left,
or open from the center so you can roll away to one side or both.
And the roller carriage system makes them easy to install and
remove, even for one person. They do not require any extra storage
and can be locked and secured.
Some homes will make accordion shutters look bulky or out of place, so be sure and think about the aesthetics of having shutters and tracks permanently attached to your home. Also, because they glide on wheels, there are some mechanical parts that might break down and fail over time.
