6.8 Accordion Systems
Most accordion shutters on the market today are constructed in a way that does not allow the stainless steel screws (the main structural component that holds the shutter in its tracks), to be lubricated. As a result, the stainless steel screws corrode the aluminum shutter over time, which subsequently compromises the operation and performance of the shutter. That’s why our 6.8 Accordion Shutters were designed in a way that easily permits the lubrication of the assembly screws, even by a homeowner. This ensures your accordions will operate correctly when you need them most, and perform like new for many years to come.
You’ll be pleased to find that our 6.8 Accordion Shutters are the tightest-stacking shutters on the market today, and virtually undetectable in your home. They also offer a wide array of benefits, including:
- Long-lasting performance.
- Easy maintenance and care.
- Less obtrusive than any other accordion system.
- Designed to cover almost any type of opening.
- Fast and simple locking.
- No additional locking rods required.
- Available in white, bronze, ivory and beige.
