Hurricane Shutter Strap©
Affordable Hurricane Protection For Your Home
So, what makes Ark Rainbow different from all the other hurricane protection companies out there? First and foremost, we care. We care about the safety of your home & family, we care about the quality of our products, we care about what this web site has to offer you!
This is our passion! Our web site offers much more than things to buy. We offer information on every aspect of hurricane protection that we can. If you are a DIY (Do It Yourself) person, you are in the right place. If a "hammer drill" sounds like a schizophrenic tool, don't worry, you're still in the right place.
You won't just get installation instructions, you'll get a minor course in carpentry, safety, and as many things as we can add. All in an organized, attractive, and sometimes humorous environment that will continue to change and grow with your needs. Scare tactics are not our forte. Hurricanes as scary enough on their own.
- Here you will find products and knowledge on storm preparation to help you.
- Encouragement to keep you from putting off what needs to be done.
- Inspiration from others around you. (see "The Gulf Coast 2009: Four years after Katrina" in the Picture Gallery).
- A desire to hear your ideas and your needs, then act on them.
Our primary product is the patented Hurricane Shutter Strap©.
The Ark Rainbow Hurricane Shutter Strap© uses a unique Clamping-Lever to securely mount plywood shutters over most recessed windows and doors with a minimum of effort. It can be installed quickly by a handyman or average do-it-yourselfer at prices far below standard hurricane shutters.
The plywood shutter fits over (not into) the window opening and is clamped into place from the outside. No permanent hardware is attached and it can be installed on brick,cement block and other masonry openings. Some products that install into the opening can fail on smooth surfaces such as cement block. The Hurricane Shutter Strap© will grip your window like a barnacle grips a rock in the pounding surf.
- Easy: Install it yourself and feel the satisfaction. This has DIY written all over it.
- Fast: Two cuts and a few holes and you are ready to go.
- Affordable: Prices are far below standard hurricane shutters.
- Safe: Our straps holding ability have been tested to pressures reaching 110% of a category 5 hurricane.
- Completely Removable: Unlike most hurricane shutters, no unsightly hardware is permanently attached to the home.
- Excels on all types of Masonry Framing: Installs on brick, tile, cement block, or stucco. Can also be safely installed on wood framing, but installation varies slightly.
- Superior Protection: Many products mount the plywood inside the window frame against the window itself . A wind borne impact to the panel can damage the window costing you hundreds! Our system mounts the panel over the window opening, leaving a protective space between the panel and the window.
- Quiet: No noisy rattling of metal panels in the wind.
