The Assured Difference

Accordion Shutter Standard Options

Smooth Gliding Wheels
The easy glide design offer an open and close operation with less effort.
  • Easy Lock With Failsafe – The shutter lock is easier to close and operate and a turn-knob provides a failsafe in the event of a failure.
  • Nylon Clips – Easy system operation, highly weather resistant, and low maintenance. Far superior to Velcro straps which offer tight fastening but are not weather resistant and require replacement.
Rain Guards
Provide protection from water penetration leading to additional maintenance and reduced shutter longevity.

Extra options for accordion shutters

One of the most commonly overlooked details of accordion shutters is that they block out all of the light. This can be a big deal in the case of a storm if power is lost in your home.

In order to remedy this issue we offer transparent Lexan blades and peepholes to allow light in your home in blackout situations. Our Accordion Shutters also have the option of a turn knob in the event of a lock failure.

Although all of these details may seem minor, in the event of the storm you will appreciate these benefits while your hurricane accordion shutters keep you and your family safe.

Unfortunately, many companies take shortcuts to save time, material, and money.

Assured Storm never takes shortcuts when it comes to hurricane shutter installations that protects customers homes and families. When Assured installs hurricane shutters they do so as if it was their own home, using only the best application and best material. This includes using closure channels with stainless steel screws two on top two on the bottom when possible, always caulking to avoid mold, and many more.

Unlike our competitors, our hurricane shutters use closure channels with a 90-degree bend to increase the shutters resistance to denting, and make the product more cosmetically appealing.

Types of basic attachments

Accordion Hurricane Shutters Wall to Wall attachment with no decorative stucco bands

This accordion hurricane shutter application is the most common installation on a home. All windows on a flat wall with no obstacles are installed with a wall header track top and bottom, with side closures to the left and right. Side closures may be installed with a flat starter and an angle attached with self-drilling screws or a direct side closure which is installed directly to the top and bottom wall header. This results in a stronger and more cosmetically appealing installation.

Accordions Hurricane Shutters Wall to Wall Attachment with decorative stucco bands

This attachment is similar to a wall attachment, but might require using a build-out wall header to go over stucco bands or when a stucco band is present on either the top or bottom, a build-out track will be required to make the shutter plumb. Stucco bands that vary in thickness may require side angles to be notched.

Wall to Walkover

This accordion shutter attachment is used for all doors where the floor beneath the door is level. The walkover track has a slim profile and is installed directly to the floor not using a wall track as some companies will do, (this will leave a gap between the floor and track where you can get your foot jammed and is a trip hazard). It will pass code, but is not the right way to install a walkover track

Wall to adjustable

This application is used on doors when the floor is not level. The track is mounted to the floor, but its unique two-part system allows it to compensate for the pitch in the floor and produces a level surface.

Wall to Walkover with an angle

In the event that no structural concrete exists below a door, an angle may be attached to the foundation below the door. The angle is attached to the wall and the walkover track is mounted to the angle.

Trapped condition ceiling to floor

Usually an application used in condominiums where a concrete slab exists both above and below an opening. A track is mounted to the ceiling and usually an adjustable track is used on the floor.

And we can also use a radius track to bend the accordion shutter stack so that it stores away from the front preventing obstruction of the view

Radius Track for Bay Windows

This attachment is similar to a wall attachment, but might require using a build-out wall header to go over stucco bands or when a stucco band is present on either the top or bottom, a build-out track will be required to make the shutter plumb. Stucco bands that vary in thickness may require side angles to be notched.
