Broward County Hurricane Preparedness Guide
Here is an excerpt from the Broward County Hurricane Preparedness guide on window shutters:
Shutter Your Windows
"If you already have shutters, now is the time to make sure they're in good working condition. For accordion or roll-down shutters, test to see if they open and close easily, clear track of obstructions and lubricate. For panel shutters, check for excessive wear or rust on connectors.
Using plywood may be a more economical way of covering windows, but may not offer enough protection. Metal hurricane-resistant shutters are preferred. If you use plywood, make sure it is at least 5/8' thick and use the proper anchors and support beams.
Make sure shutters have the Miami-Dade County Product Approval or a Florida Building Code Product Approval.
Shutters should be installed by a licensed professional and inspected by a government agency such as your city's building code department.
DO NOT USE TAPE! Tape will not keep the window from breaking.
Do not leave any window open for equalizing pressure between the inside and outside of your home. It is not necessary and could be a dangerous mistake. "
