PANEL Shutters/ Covers

When deciding on the correct type of product to use on your home. Panel shutters offer several advantages. They are easily stored outside under a porch, in a corner, or in its own box. Panels work best when the opening is low to the ground and relatively square. There are two types of panel products OCS uses. Storm Shield and Aluminum corrugated panels.
