Bahama Shutters are similar in design to the Colonial Shutter. Bahama shutters cover windows and are hinged at the top giving the house a Bahamian or tropical appearance. The Bahama shutter also reduces the amount of sunlight entering the window. Simply lowering and latching the shutter provides storm protection.
Colonial Shutters are hinged on the side and open to the outside of the window promoting the look of a Colonial Estate. Before the storm arrives, the shutters are simply closed and latched with hinges and or locking bars.
