When built into a new Austin home, Roll Shutters also called Storm or Security Shutters, are virtually invisible and can be closed via electric motor. While in the closed position, they not only provide storm protection, they also protect from forced entry and theft. The unique design of these roll-up hurricane shutters can protect doors, windows, sliding glass doors, and other openings not only from the winds but also from the debris that are tossed about by the winds. The system can be activated manually by crank or remotely using a motorized system.
Hurricane shutters work and operate in a similar manner to an old fashioned roll-up window blind. Slats of metal are pieced together and rolled up in a coil. Unrolling the coil allows the shutter to cover the opening and offer the protection. Rolling it back up removes the shutter and allows the door or window to be used in a normal manner.
