Customer Service is Our Top Priority!

Tip: The combination of a deeper corrugation, greater temporizing of the aluminum extrusions, larger connecting hinges and increased fastening bolt diameter dramatically increases the overall strength of the BERTHA HV-1 accordion shutter system.

Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or a professional installer, you are guaranteed to love to install our BERTHA HV-1 accordion shutters. Only eight screws quickly attach the top, bottom and sides to form a “picture frame” that contains all of the vertical blades. The top and bottom rails come pre-drilled along with a center hole to allow you to quickly center and secure the top and bottom tracks to the wall.

Two trained installers can completely install our accordion shutters (on a first floor window) in just 8 minutes. A first time, do-it-yourselfer may take a few minutes longer on the first few windows. Regardless, they are as simple to install as plywood or hurricane panels!

Tip: Installing BERTHA HV-1 accordion hurricane shutters may qualify you for a homeowners insurance discount!
