Hurricane shutters are a solid investment for home owners living in the Cayman Islands, where storms and hurricanes are prevalent. Having a home that is properly secure and storm ready will give you and your family peace of mind.
Prior to a natural disaster occurring, install hurricane shutters on windows and glass doors to protect your home or business.
There are a variety of options that you should consider when choosing hurricane shutters to protect your home or business. These include traditional hurricane shutters (accordion, panel, roller, colonial, Bahama), electric roller doors/windows and maximum security screens (Crimsafe), which unlike typical hurricane shutters, will safely allow breeze and sunlight in and prevent any intrusion attempts.
There is also the option of window lamination which adds a micro-thin transparent film to glass that then makes the window an effective barrier to high impact projectiles.
Apex Perimeter Protection (a division of The Security Centre Limited) provides solutions that protect your home or business from hurricanes and intruders. Their showroom has a full range of impact windows and doors, security laminates, security screens, hurricane shutters and more.
Before the hurricane season starts, if you already have shutters installed be sure to check that they can still open and are not damaged. If you cannot open them or if they are already destroyed you will need to get replacement shutters as soon as possible. Cayman’s building code regulations ensure that modern buildings are strong enough to withstand a certain degree of quaking, so the main hazards are unsecured appliances, objects and structures that could fall and cause injury, downed power lines and damaged water and sewerage systems.
