StormPro Tornado Shutter

Keeping windows secured during a tornado can be accomplished with the same proven technology that’s been used for door openings for years. The StormPro line Windstorm certified products now includes a window shutter system. It’s designed safe rooms that require natural lighting from windows during normal, non-threatening conditions.

StormPro Window Shutter Systems include a 4-sided StormPro frame unit with StormPro door and hardware. The units are installed inside the room in front of conventional exterior windows. When a severe weather threat occurs, the StormPro Window Shutter is closed creating a level of security equal to an approved storm shelter.
