Permex Hurricane Shutters are identical in appearance to our custom exterior line with one distinct difference. GE’s Lexan is incorporated into the panel making it impact resistant. In addition, Permex Hurricane shutters offers a simple and easy installation solution. Now you can secure panels from inside the structure by attaching the storm bar with stainless steel screws to threaded inserts permanently placed in the shutter. No more ladders or scaffolding to secure hard to reach openings. Simply close panels into the opening and secure the storm bar from inside the home.
Permex Hurricane Shutters have passed testing for wind load pressures of 60 PSF. In addition, ASTM 1886/1996 cyclic and impact tests were successfully conducted for wind speeds of 150 mph with a Level D impact rating. (Patent #US006470639B1)
Located in Azalea Park, the Idea House combines historic beauty with twenty-first century state-of-the-art building materials. “While the materials appear to be traditional, they consist of synthetic look-alikes chosen for their durability and low maintenance,” says builder John O. Freeman, “that’s why we chose Permex Shutters for the house. They have the look of wood but are completely synthetic.”
