The Eyewall Armor® 6.8 Accordion sets the standard for how accordion shutters should be designed. All previous accordion shutter designs were inefficient and had limited life spans, some needing replacement in as little as 4 years. The combination of the offset screw boss and superior coatings makes this family of accordions the most durable and long-lasting available in the market today. The 6.8 is our “Mid-Rise” accordion meaning it has been designed for the higher wind loads found in most taller residential and commercial buildings.
The Eyewall Armor® Streamline (SL) is our cost-effective residential accordion system option. While the SL Accordion is lighter and more cost-effective, it still has all the same features and benefits of our 6.8 System. The SL Accordion also meets the same testing and code requirements as the 6.8 System, while carrying the same approvals and evaluations. The SL has been optimized for strength and cost efficiency for the residential market.
