Atlantic’s Bahama shutters have been a long-time favorite of coastal / tropical areas and desert communities with their beautiful architectural style.

For extreme functionality and protection for coastal homes at risk from storms, both Architectural and Classic Collection shutter designs are available in hurricane storm-rated versions (Does not apply to arch and radius top shutters).
A 1/8" thick polycarbonate panel is permanently attached to the back of each shutter, remaining hidden when shutters are in the open position, and facing outward for impact protection when shutters are in the closed position.
Strong aluminum storm bars are used to secure the shutters closed in Horizontal (dual bar) exterior or interior Storm Bar Systems. Each of our three storm-rated shutter systems meet impact testing requirements as specified in the IRC and IBC 2006; our Bahama Systems also meet the State of Florida Building Code 2006.
Shutters are mounted with historically correct operable hardware. Unlike “fixed mounted” shutters, this hardware sets the shutter off from the house and allows the shutter to be closed within the window frame. This adds dimension and an elegant accent to your home. This hardware is forged from 304 series stainless steel and has a matte black powder coated finish. Bahama style shutters are mounted with aluminum hardware available in a mill or powder-coated finish.
