This job was installed by 1st Choice Windows and Shutters LLC at the end of August 2014.
Here you can see the roll Down Shutter covering both sliding glass doors in the pool area. The one on the left only goes a little higher than the door since the ceiling is sloped. The second shutter is all the way to the ceiling making it feel for substantial, and will look better when the shutter is open! You can also notice clear hurricane panels installed on the mitered glass window on the right. Clear panels are the best in this application, easy to deploy, can see out and lets light in. The angled window makes it hard for other shutters to be installed, but clear panels go right up 🙂
In this photo, you can see what we call a track on wall installation. This simply means the tracks that the shutter slats are guided through are mounted directly to a wall. This installation method is the simplest and offers the least amount of bulk to your new Roll Shutters.
You can see more track on wall Roll Down Shutters in this picture. You can also notice a universal at the top left of each box. This is to attach a hand crank to be able to manually open and close the shutters without electricity in case of a power outage. Otherwise, a wireless handheld remote control can operate the shutters from inside or out.
