What Sets heroal Hurricane Shutters Apart?

Designed for Impact Resistance

For homes that are at the mercy of unruly weather forces, a storm shutter system that withstands even the most violent of hurricanes is the only option. Sand blasting, water penetration, driven and airborne debris – the heroal roll-down hurricane shutters have it all covered. Withstanding winds of up to 150 mph, the shutters can be controlled from near or far either with wind sensors or with your smartphone.

Maximum Color Diversity and Aesthetics

Whether you’re dealing with a renovation or a new construction, thanks to a comprehensive RAL color palette, and different surface options , heroal aluminum and stainless steel storm shutters fit into every curtain wall aesthetic and match all exteriors. The custom designed shutters are available with small winding diameters and in individual sizes, making them suitable for openings of all sizes up to 102.3 ft².

One Hurricane Shutter System Does All

For maximum peace of mind, one multifunctional system that takes care of everything is the ideal hurricane protection solution. Although impact resistance is the most important element, there are more added benefits to rolling shutters than there may seem. Noise protection, privacy, energy efficiency, design and quality made in Germany – these are just a few extra qualities that can be expected from the heroal window shutters.

Hurricane Shutters to Suit Your Individual Needs and Specific Location

Hurricane Shutters certified by Florida Building Code and Texas Department of Insurance

In order to ensure that buildings have effective hurricane protection, the Florida Building Code (FBC) and the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) have important standards of performance for aspects such as windows and shutters in areas at risk from hurricanes. The Florida Building Code and the Texas Department of Insurance divide these states into different hazard areas based on wind zones. Each zone is subject to its own strict guidelines, which must be taken into account when installing building components such as windows and shutters in new buildings and renovations. Impact tests are used to test whether the components meet the hurricane protection requirements. These tests simulate flying debris that can damage a building during a hurricane. The objects used to simulate debris differ in length, weight and impact speed according to the desired certification. The highest certification that can be obtained is a category E certification. For this test, a lumber with a length of 2.4 m (approx. 7.9 feet) and a weight of 4.1 kg (approx. 9 pounds) is launched at a test object – such as a window or a shutter – at a speed of 86 km/h (approx. 53 miles/h).
