Default Re: Hurricane/Storm-shutter / window-protection ideas?

I used the aluminum panels in the Keys for 10 years. The tracking stayed up all year long making installation relatively easy. I was able to put up the panels myself and I weighed less than 100 lbs at the time. They are somewhat awkward but easy enough once you get used to them. They did block out light and they did make it hot but more than adequately deflected the random flying coconut from the beach.
