Galvanized Steel panels give you the most bang for your buck. They are the most affordable and at the same time equally as effective. These panels can be heavy and are not suitable for all houses. Ladder installation of these panels on the second floor is NOT recommended, Aluminum panels are a great alternative. Homes with over sized windows should not use these panels, as they will be too heavy to install. If you are on a budget and have a single story house with moderate sized windows this is the shutter for you. Just like the Lexan and the Aluminum panels you can install you can install the headers and sills yourself and once installation is in place installation of the panels is easy and tool-free.
Comparable to the cost of plywood, Steel panels last a lifetime.
Steel panels stack on top of each other for space efficient storage.
Compatible with both Lexan and Aluminum panels-easy installation.
