Hurricane Protection Myth:

Leaving your windows open or partially open will reduce the pressure of hurricane force winds on your home.

Truth:

A MYTHBUSTERS episode showed that leaving windows open does not significantly reduce pressure in the home and allows water to penetrate.

 

Hurricane Rated Colonial Shutters

OCS has partnered with Permex Hurricane Shutters from J&L Shutters to provide impact rated and non rated plantation/colonial and bahama style shutters.  Permex Hurricane Shutters are identical in appearance to J&L's custom exterior line with one distinct difference. GE's Lexan is incorporated into the panel making it impact resistant. In addition, Permex Hurricane shutters offer a simple and easy installation solution. Permex is the only tested shutter with the storm bar on the inside of the shutter. This feature allows you to secure shutters from inside your home. No more ladders or scaffolding to secure hard to reach openings. Simply close panels into the opening and secure the storm bar from inside, safely.
