Hurricane Accordion Storm Shutters

Hurricane Accordion Shutters Southwest Ranches FLAccordion 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

Hurricane Roll Down Shutters Southwest Ranches FLRoll 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 Aluminum Shutters Southwest Ranches FLBahama 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 Aluminum Shutters Southwest Ranches FLColonial 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.

Storm Panels

Southwest Ranches FL

Southwest Ranches Florida MapSouthwest Ranches is located in Broward County, Florida. It is located on the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades, 15 miles (24 km) southwest of Fort Lauderdale FL. It was incorporated in the year 2000 to avoid annexation by the city of Pembroke Pines and to preserve its semi-rural lifestyle. Because the area has many horse ranches and is located in the southwestern part of Broward County, residents chose “Southwest Ranches” over many other potential town names. The population as of the 2010 census was 7,345. The town includes the 2000 U.S. Census census-designated places of Country Estates, Green Meadow, Ivanhoe Estates, Rolling Oaks, and Sunshine Ranches. Other areas recently added to the town include Landmark Ranch Estates and Sterling Ranch Estates. To support its rural-equestrian lifestyle, the town has designated and developed dozens of miles of greenways (multi-use trails). The area is primarily residential, with most lots of 1 acre (0.40 ha) or more. There are some small farms and equestrian ranches. The town has laws that keep homes from being built on lots of less than 1 acre. They also generally stop streetlights and sidewalks from being built, in order to conserve and keep the town rural. The town’s unofficial motto is “The pavement stops here!” In the fall of 1996 Pembroke Pines FL introduced a proposed bill to the Broward County Legislative Delegation to annex into that city all the unincorporated area between Griffin Road to the north, Sheridan Street to the South, Flamingo Road to the east and SR 25 to the west. Hundreds of citizens from that unincorporated area, known as the Southwest Ranches, packed the Delegation hearing in November of 1996 held at Pembroke Pines City Hall to protest this attempted takeover and to call for the right to form their own city. As a result of this grassroots effort, the State Legislature passed a bill in the 1997 session calling for a vote of the citizens of Southwest Ranches in March of 2000. At that time, voters would have three choices. They could vote to annex into either Pembroke Pines or Davie or vote to become a new city. Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association was an umbrella group composed of individual homeowners associations in the Southwest Ranches area. Anyone belonging to an individual homeowners association was also automatically a member of Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association, with full voting rights. In the summer of 1997, SWRHA members agreed to actively promote incorporation of a new city for the area and formed Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association Political Committee to explore this option. A feasibility committee was appointed to determine if a new city would be viable. They would have to know if revenues would be adequate to cover the costs of running a city. Dr. Milan Dluhy of Florida International University was contacted and asked to complete a formal feasibility study. Dr. Dluhy had produced many such studies for groups which subsequently became successful cities. The feasibility committee also contacted Moyer and Associates, the company which provides contract services to Weston. On March 14, 2000, residents voted overwhelmingly to form a new Town rather than be annexed. Weston FL is to the north. Davie FL is to the east. Pembroke Pines FL is to the south.

Hurricane Wilma

Hurricane Wilma in Florida

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 Yucat√°n 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.
