Bahama Shutters – Are permanently attached over window openings only. When not in use for protection, the shutters are held by horizontal arms at an outward angel permitting views through the spacing between the slats. They are deployed by unfastening the arms, rotating the shutter down to cover the window and locking them into place. Bahamas require more effort to install than Rolldown or Accordion shutters and are limited in the size and type of window openings for which they can be used. They can give your home a unique look and a Key West feel while providing shade and hurricane protection at the same time. There are 20 standard color options.

Colonial Shutters – The hurricane-approved version of the decorative wooden shutters commonly found on homes. The shutters are hinge-mounted to each side of the window or door. Curved panels can be built to accommodate arched openings. During deployment, the colonial shutters are swung into position over the openings and locked with either clips or storm bars. Colonials are limited in the width of the opening for which they can be used. They can give your home a traditional style reminiscent of New England, Charleston & New Orleans, while providing Hurricane protection at the same time. There are 20 standard color options.

Bahama and Colonial Shutters are able to be installed on homes that are currently being constructed or already exist. Many colors are available making them visually appealing to your home. Some individuals have colonial style shutters installed in non-hurricane areas to add to the charm of their home. Sizes can vary based upon home construction and several other factors. They can control some of the light and sound which enters into the home. Bahamas style shutters are those that push out from the windows while colonial style shutters are those that are on the sides of the windows.
