The BERTHA HV (High Velocity) accordion shutters are constructed of reinforced, heavy gauge extruded aluminum panels. The BERTHA HV accordions offer hurricane protection against high winds, storms, and because of our optional key locks, you can even protect against forced entry.
These accordion shutters are painted using an electro statically applied, baked-on enamel finish that can be ordered in one of four colors: WHITE, BEIGE, IVORY and BRONZE. We offer full installation services as well as affordable DIY accordion storm shutters materials and support. Our accordion shutters are Dade County and Florida Building Code Approved.

Approved. Provides hurricane protection against up to Category 5 hurricane winds. These accordion panels have been tested to wind speeds of 230 mph and carry the approval of both Dade County and the Florida Building Code.
Any size. These accordion shutters can be installed in tracks of any length because they have built in reinforcing and do not require any additional reinforce-ment with vertical braces or supports.
Easy to use. Because these shutters are permanently installed next to the opening, they can be quickly slid closed and locked at a moments notice. The extra heavy-duty nylon wheels enable the shutters to open and close with ease.
Insurance discount. This accordion shutter hurricane protection may qualify you for a homeowners insurance discount.
Storage. When not in use, our BERTHA HV accordion shutters stack in compactly next to the opening. Due to our design, we have the smallest storage requirement of any accordion shutter.
Value. Our BERTHA HV accordion shutters have been engineered for long lasting Florida hurricane protection. They not only add security but also a decorative touch when in use.
Any height and any width. Our BERTHA HV shutters can be used to secure patios at any height. Normal shutters are only approved up to 30 feet from the ground. We have also been approved for any length shutters. During our certification testing, we successfully passed all required hurricane tests using accordion shutters that were 16 feet tall and unsecured on both outside (left and right)ends.
We follow the curves. Our BERTHA HV accordion shutters can be custom installed to follow your opening's curved contours using smoothly bent track. Most other installers have to make their own curves out of small straight tracks. Our tracks are factory bent resulting in a smooth professional appearance and an effortless operation when opening and closing of your shutters.
Energy efficiency. Our BERTHA HV accordion shutters also effectively block sunlight and provide a degree of insulation keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
New or retrofit. These shutters can be installed on new construction or retro-fitted into existing buildings.
