Are They Bahama Shutters
. . . or Bermuda Shutters?

Bahama shutters are the same thing as Bermuda shutters. What makes a Bahama shutter a Bahama shutter is really the fact that the shutter is hinged at the top like an awning. Because this usually results in one large shutter per window you will often see a center vertical stile used for added stability.Aluminum Hurricane Shutters

Are Kestrel Bahama Shutters Hurricane Rated?

We offer Bahama Shutters made out of Sapele Mahogany and also Aluminum. The Aluminum Bahamas Shutters are avaialble as either Hurricane Shutters (approved for use in all Florida locations) as well as non-impact shutters.

When would I use a Bahama Shutter?

There are two main ways that Bahama shutters are used. They can be used to cover the entire window, as shown in the Barnes & Noble photo to the left. This will block out direct light, allow ventilation, and can be closed over the window to give maximum protection during storms. The other way is to think of a Bahama shutter as if it were a wooden awning. In this case the shutters are made smaller and used as an awning over the window. These also give protection from direct sunlight but allow full visiblity through the window.
