Hurricane Accordion Storm Shutters
Accordion shutters are a permanently installed storm shutter system designed for both protection from the elements (such as hurricanes) and home / office security. They fold back to stack neatly next to the opening similar to a louvered door and are composed of one or two pieces. Accordion storm shutters are great for windows and doors, balconies, large patio openings, and commercial high-rise buildings.
Roll shutters are installed above an opening and are raised and lowered using an electronic motor. The system can also be activated manually by crank. When built into a new home, roll down shutters are virtually invisible. While in the closed position, they not only provide storm protection, but they also protect from forced entry and theft. When not in use, they store in an enclosed box located at the top of the opening.
Bahama Aluminum Shutters
Bahama hurricane shutters hinge at the top and have adjustable arms allowing the shutters to be positioned at various angles. If privacy and/or relief from the Florida sun is desired, Bahama shutters can be positioned within the window opening. During hurricanes and storms, simply lower the shutter into the vertical position and secure with locking pins. Bahama shutters are the premiere choice for windows on multi-story buildings because they can easily be locked from inside.
Colonial Aluminum Shutters
Colonial Shutters are similar to Bahama Shutters except they hinge on the sides as opposed to hinging at the top. To secure Colonial shutters for hurricanes, simply close each half of the shutter and secure with a horizontal storm bar. The storm bar fits into brackets that are permanently attached to the non-decorative side of the shutter and are secured with locking pins.
Steel, aluminum or polycarbonate storm panels attach to the walls around windows and doors on bolts or tracks. Storm panels are corrugated, and each piece overlaps the next for maximum strength. There are several styles of storm panels to choose from.

Bal Harbour, FL
Bal Harbour is a village in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The population was 3,305 at the 2000 census. Bal Harbour Florida is located on the northern tip of the barrier island commonly referred to as Miami Beach; it is the northern-most barrier island in a chain that extends southward up to and including Key West, Florida. A channel between the north end of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic ocean runs across the northern end of Bal Harbour. A bridge, maintained by the State of Florida connects Bal Harbour to Haulover Park, to the north. Water is the north and east. Bay Harbor Islands are to the west. Surfside, FL, is to the south. Since the 1920s, the Detroit-based Miami Beach Heights Corporation (headed by industrialists Robert C. Graham, Walter O. Briggs, and C.T. Fisher) owned 245 acres (0.99 km2) of undeveloped, partially swampy land that stretched from Biscayne Bay to the Atlantic Ocean. Mr. Graham assumed the duties as the developer for Bal Harbour. As a goodwill gesture to the government, Robert C. Graham rented the land to the United States Air Corps for $1 per year during World War 2. The Air Corps used this land to train soldiers and established a Prisoner of War camp. The ocean front area was used as a rifle range and the barracks were set up on the west side of Collins Avenue. The camp for prisoners was located where the Bal Harbour Shops are presently. At the end of the war, the Air Corps left the barracks buildings as a thank you to the owners of the property. These barracks were converted into apartment homes by Mr. Graham in 1946. In order to incorporate a city in 1946, there had to be at least 25 male registered voters residing in the area. Mr. Graham had twenty five families move into the apartment homes that he had converted in order to qualify the Village for incorporation, which occurred on August 14, 1946.
Hurricane Wilma was the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Wilma was the fourth Category 5 hurricane and second-most destructive hurricane of the record-breaking 2005 season. Formed in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica on October 15. Wilma continued intensifying, and eventually became a hurricane on October 18. Shortly thereafter, extreme intensification occurred, and in only 24 hours, Wilma became a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made landfall in Cape Romano, Florida with winds of 120 mph (190 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the US state of Florida. At least 62 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at $29.1 billion (2005 USD), $20.6 billion (2005 USD) of which occurred in the United States. As a result, Hurricane Wilma is ranked among the top five most costly hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic and the fifth costliest storm in United States history.
