Hurricane Security Shutters for Schools and Universities

Whether you’re building an elementary school that needs corridor security for after-hours activities or a university dining hall with the need for a service window closure, we’ve got you covered.

SCHOOL AND UNIVERSITY SOLUTIONS DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND

Cornell StormDefender® hurricane security shutters for schools and universities provide dependable security and reliable protection against hurricanes, high winds and severe weather. These school security shutters remain virtually invisible until you need them, providing the ultimate in aesthetic appeal.

These shutters are ideal for use anywhere you want to create a sheltered area, including:

  • Hallways
  • Cafeterias
  • Gymnasiums
  • Common areas

Our StormDefender® security shutters for schools are designed to provide a safe environment that feels open, airy and secure. These closures transform any community space into a designated storm shelter and safe room complaint with International Code Council (ICC) 500 standards and Federal Emergency Management Agency publication 361 (FEMA P-361). For added protection against smoke and fire, you can order StormDefender® school security shutters in fire-rated models with a UL 10B three-hour fire rating and a smoke rating that meets UL 1784 standards.

CONCEALABLE AND RELIABLE SCHOOL SECURITY SHUTTERS

StormDefender® hurricane security shutters for schools are sleek and can be installed into precast concrete as a seamless addition to your architecture. When you need to deploy them, our school security shutters close quietly and form an interlocking design that provides protection against winds up to 250 mph. These shutters come with our AlarmGard® motor that you can configure to deploy automatically with your alarm system. If the power goes out, our school security shutters close automatically to ensure everyone stays protected.

HEAVY-DUTY PROTECTION CUSTOMIZED FOR YOUR FACILITY

We offer a wide range of customization options to help you create school security shutters that match your decorative style and show your pride. These shutters feature a curtain made from steel protected by our durable SpectraShield® powder coat finish in your choice of over 180 colors. We also offer our AtmoShield™ textured powder coating, or you can order a curtain made from stainless steel. The hood, bracket, guides and bottom bar are all made from galvanized steel and color-matched to the curtain.

THE BENEFITS OF STORMDEFENDER® HURRICANE SECURITY SHUTTERS FOR SCHOOLS

In addition to proven protection from tornadoes and hurricane-force winds, our school security shutters deliver additional benefits for facilities of any size, including:

  • Fit: All of our StormDefender® hurricane security shutters for schools are custom-made, and we have large dimensions available to accommodate your needs.
  • Protection: These security shutters provide protection from debris and have patent-pending windlocks designed to withstand the most extreme weather.
