Our experience - Alutech is a leading manufacturer of storm shutters, security grill products and hurricane screens. Our business began more than 35 years ago in Germany when founder Hans Schanz began researching roller shutter designs. As a mechanical engineer, Schanz saw a number of other applications for this design and Alutech was born. In the 1980s, the company pioneered a new design of security shutters that could follow the shapes of a variety of windows. By the 1990s, Alutech expanded internationally and today services customers all over the world from its new headquarters in Selbyville, Delaware.


Our versatility - While our storm shutters are ideal to have in place when severe weather threatens, they are also perfect for everyday use. Our security shutters are versatile enough to provide shading and will even serve as a thermal barrier on days when the temperatures spike or plummet.

What is a hurricane shutter?


Hurricane coverings, commonly known as shutters, are used in hurricane mitigation to protect houses and other structures from damage caused by storms. Hurricane shutters are used to prevent windows from being broken by flying objects during a storm. Although the negative pressure caused by high velocity wind flowing over a building roof can cause the roof to fail with the building envelope intact, broken windows allow the air pressure to rise inside a building, creating an even greater pressure difference, and increasing the likelihood of roof failure. Hurricane shutters are frequently constructed from steel or aluminium. The shutters are affixed to the outside of the building with screws, hurricane clips, or a track system. Advanced shutters may be motorized, and they may fold away when not in use. Call Opening Protection Services to install the highest rated hurricane shutters anywhere in the area. Our install and service teams will make sure it’s done right the first time, every time! Call us today!
