Master Aluminum manufactures top quality aluminum hurricane shutters. Our shutters are welded at the corners, making them stronger, seamless, and more attractive. Just as important, it eliminates the corner corrosion that often occurs with regular hurricane shutters.
Bahama shutters are intended to give a Bahamian or tropical appeal. These shutters have stationary louvers or blades held within a frame. The blade spacing is 2", allowing for greater visibility and light.
Bahama shutters are mounted from a continuous hinge at the top that, in turn, is mounted above the window. These shutters are extended from the wall at the bottom with adjustable telescoping arms.
While enhancing the beauty of the home, the Bahama shutter provides shade from direct sunlight while allowing a degree of visibility between the louvers. They can be secured flat against the wall to provide additional protection from flying debris during a hurricane or storm.
Bahama shutters manufactured by Master Aluminum fall into 2 categories:
Non impact shutters - These Bahama shutters are not tested to meet any building codes. These shutters are made of extruded aluminum with welded corners but still provide a substantial degree of protection under storm conditions.
Impact Rated shutters – These Bahama shutters are tested to meet all the local and state building codes (Florida Building Code, International Building Code, Texas Building Code, etc.). Certified engineering drawings are available. These hurricane shutters are also made from extruded aluminum with welded corners.
Arched Frames - We form our arched frames in-house. Individual arched frames are also available.
Bahama hurricane shutters are available in a wide range of marine grade powder coat colors. Color matching is also available.
