Stormy Hurricane Shutters - WLOX.com - The News for South Mississippi

About Us:
 
Our company was started before Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast area.  After extensive research it was discovered that there was a lack of quality storm shutter companies along the gulf coast.  Companies needed to provide first rate products with quality customer service and professionalism.  At that point we set goals for ourselves and the company to become a customer oriented company.
 
First Goal:  You as the customer come first and foremost. We demand courtesy, respect and professionalism from all of our employees towards our customers. 
 
Second Goal:  Provide our customers with top quality products. In our research we also discovered the general public was not able to get quality products and installation.  The public was being sold products that they thought would protect their families and property, only to find out after the storm they were not fully protected. Unfortunately, this is still occurring today, even with the knowledge and products available in our industry.  As a company, we go to great lengths to educate our sales staff and installation crews to be knowledgeable with all codes, products, and installation
 
Third Goal:  Installations to meet Florida and Miami-Dade building codes along with manufacturers' recommendations. The installations we found were less than adequate for storm protection.  Instead of using subcontractors to install our products, we actually employee installers, allowing us to have control over all installations. Because of our strong belief in our goals, we have earned respect from our customers.  Those customers in return have recommended Stormy Hurricane Shutters, LLC to their friends, family and business associates.  Because of you, our customers, our company is stabile and will be around for a long time to serve the Gulf Coast.

We also offer a snap cap for the track that keeps out debris and can be used to hold back the storm curtain.

Bahama Shutters

Stormy Hurricane Shutters Bahama shutters provide your home or business with that gulf coast, day at the beach feeling.  These hurricane shutters not only offer storm protection but also shield your home against excess light and glare while allowing for cool breezes when your windows are open. 

We have different styles of Bahama shutters to choose from.

We have three styles that meet the 146 mph wind zone with large and small missile impact.  Meets Florida, Miami-Dade code. Full view Bahama Shutters with articulating louvers in the shutter allow you the best view from inside the home or business.  The HV Bahama shutter allows exceptional view with no moving parts.  This is a heavy duty system with a built in latching mechanism for easy operation of the hurricane shutter system.  We also offer a Bahama shutter that is rated for High Velocity wind zone of the Florida building code.  However this shutter has a solid backing panel and does not allow for any light or view.

We also offer a hollow blade non-rated shutter. The Bahama shutter system is good for second floor and higher installation because it can be easily latched from the inside the home.  No need to drag a ladder out when you need to close the shutters.

The latching system provides for a very strong shutter system when in the closed position.

Everyone should think about egress from the building in case of fire or emergency. Without shutter systems that are designed with inside latching it makes egress easy.  Plywood does not allow for egress in an emergency.

Bahama shutters are available in over two hundred colors.  Holdout arms and fasteners are color coated to match the shutter color.

Rolldown Shutters

Stormy Hurricane Shutters Rolldown shutters are an excellent choice for hurricane protection.  The rolldown shutter is one system available that can be built for the high velocity wind zone.  The high velocity wind zone is 150 mph and above.  These hurricane shutters are multi-functional and can be used for not only storm protection but also sun and security protection as well.

Wind Load Posts The garage door is the largest opening in your home.  For this reason the garage door must be protected against hurricane and storm damage. The development of the Wind Load post system is designed to do just that. It is also designed to be easily installed and removed when needed.  Test results show when a garage door blows in, it allows your home to pressurize and this leads to catastrophic failure of your roof system, hence destroying your home during a hurricane.

The post system will usually have two posts per door, with brackets installed into the header above the door.  (This must be structural with a minimum embedment of 2 1//4”).  The post will drop into holes in the concrete floor with pins and will attach to the door.

The Wind Load system will stop any deflection (positive and negative) in the door and will get the door to a 146 mph rating.  The Wind Load post system that Stormy Hurricane Shutters uses is rated to meet Miami/Dade code.  Tests reports are available upon request.  This system combined with our hurricane shutter systems will give you peace of mind that you have total storm protection for home.
