·         Accordion shutters are made of extruded aluminum assembled with stainless steel hardware and nylon bushings.

·         Our HPMA Accordions are designed to withstand winds and potential impact in a "Category 5" hurricane, and are engineered to meet all of the most stringent requirements of the new Florida building code passed in January 2002.

·         Accordions are the most preferred shutters easily closed in the event of a hurricane threat from ether inside or outside the house.

·         In addition to providing protection from hurricanes and other powerful storms, accordion shutters provide another important layer of security to your home.

·         Storm panels are an effective and affordable type of hurricane protection. Safety edges have been added to panels to make them safer to install when a hurricane is approaching.

·         Made of either steel or an alloy similar to that used in airplanes, storm panels are also now stronger yet lighter than before, and can even be installed from inside your home.

·         You can choose to install the panels on tracks, or with anchors and screws for a "hidden" shutter appearance.

Panels

Our newest storm panels are made of 22-gauge galvanized steel and are strong enough to withstand an impact test of a 2 x 4 shot out of a cannon at 34 mph. The Miami-Dade County test requires the panel to be hit in 3 different places. The panel must withstand this impact and still protect the envelope of the building. This is the strictest building code in Florida for hurricane shutters. Our new 22-gauge storm panel meets this code.

Although made of steel, this storm panel has been engineered in such a way that it is almost as light in weight as aluminum.

Our new 22-gauge storm panel has been designed with the safety of the person installing them in mind. The sides of the panels have been hemmed back all the way, giving a safe and smooth edge.

The advantages of steel hurricane storm panels? They're affordable, architecturally pleasing, and easily stacked in a minimum of space.

In March of 2003 the State of Florida passed a law requiring that the second floor of all dwellings be protected from hurricanes without the use of a ladder. Our new 22-gauge steel storm panels are now engineered to meet that requirement. The new slide tracks and removable handle allow the storm panels to be put in place from inside the dwelling without the use of a ladder.

The HPMA accordion is approved by the Miami-Dade County Product Control Division, the South Florida Building Code and the new Florida Building Code. It is designed to withstand a category 5 hurricane with wind speeds exceeding 155 mph.

Accordion shutters are made of extruded aluminum alloy and assembled with stainless steel hardware, providing years of effortless, rust-free maintenance. The powder-coating finish is available in four colors: ivory, white, beige and bronze.
