TORRINGTON, CT – Hurricane season is upon the nation. Norse’s ShutterUp® quick-hang hurricane latching system for storm shutters has been discounted 15% until August 31, 2014. Contractor discounts are always available.
ShutterUp Latches provide a rugged, affordable alternative to expensive custom window shutters. Installation is easy for do-it-yourselfers. ShutterUp Latches protect any opening from small to very large: windows and doors, sliding doors, store fronts, and bay, bow and picture windows.
ShutterUp Latches carry Florida Building Code Product Approval (FPA# 15640) and Texas Department of Insurance approval (SHU-197) for use in designated catastrophe areas on the Texas Gulf Coast. Carrying approvals in these states, which have the nation’s most rigorous testing regimens, ensures contractors and homeowners of bona-fide hurricane protection.
ShutterUp Latches have also been independently tested to meet ASTM E330, E1866 and E1996 standards for protection against atmospheric pressure and storm-driven debris.
Important features of ShutterUp Latches include: clamping force of 500 lbs each latch; installs on stucco, block, brick and wood; covers angular and large openings; powder-coated steel construction; once installed, shutters hang in as little as 15 seconds per opening.
ShutterUp latches are available in six kits: surface mounting; flush mounting; side-by-side mounting; mounting around corners; attaching to window sills; and attaching to flooring (including concrete). Kits ship with mounting hardware and installation template.
Engineering assistance is always available for optimal latch and receiver selection.
Contractor discounts are available by contacting the factory.
