Product Highlights

Superior hurricane protection for your home

Roll down shutters offer the absolute best hurricane protection for your windows, doors, sliding glass doors, balconies, patios, and other openings. They protect your openings from flying debris and hurricane force winds. They can withstand the worst hurricanes because they are made from heavy-duty, impact resistant materials. Rolling shutters are Florida Product Approved and meet and exceed the current Florida Building Code and Standards.

Add Security Protection to Your Home

Yes Eurex Shutters PTX™ Rolling Hurricane Shutters can be used to protect your home or business from the toughest storms. But did you know they also can be used as security roller shutters.

They close quickly and easily. Once closed and locked they turn your home or business into an impenetrable fortress, blocking access to your property’s entry points. They can be installed to protect your windows, doors and lanai from both storms and intruders.

Roll shutters also come equipped with heavy-duty locking mechanisms. They are frequently used effectively as security shutters for homes and businesses. So they will protect your property against forced entry by intruders.

Extremely Easy to Use

Roll shutters can be opened and closed easily, from inside your house with either electric motors or manual operation.

You can also sync your automatic shutters to a Smart Device Interface (mobile APP).
