Life near the coast – despite the views, the fresh seafood and the activities – comes at a cost the hassle of worrying about storm and hurricane protection. Having an all-encompassing solution that, once installed, requires little or no effort from your end, provides you with peace of mind and the knowledge that your home and all its contents are safe, secure and protected. The unique heroal hurricane shutters offer an intuitive system that requires minimum effort and ensures maximum protection. Combining premium engineering and quality design, all of our window shutters have been tested and approved under the most demanding hurricane rating codes: Florida Building Code & Texas Department of Insurance.
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.
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 193.75ft².
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.
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).
Preparing a property against violent weather conditions is something that requires a lot of foresight and experience – luckily, the heroal storm shutters reflect just that. With over 50 years’ experience in roller shutter products, heroal’s category D shutters are crafted to stand the test of both: time and elements. Additionally, the system drastically reduces the risk of burglary during the time before and after a major storm hits. Produced in Germany, the high-quality aluminum shutters have been tested and approved according to ASTM standards and can be used for all hurricane-prone areas. The easy-to-use standby system can be activated with the touch of a button. The storm shutters have a high weather resistant surface with a two-layer thick coating. Maximum protection and innovative technology do not mean compromising on design: the rolling shutters also act as an elegant design feature to add some personality to your home.
