The Eyewall Armor® 6.8 Accordion sets the benchmark for accordion shutter design. Previous designs proved inefficient with limited lifespans, requiring replacement in as little as 4 years. Our accordions stand out with the offset screw boss and superior coatings, ensuring unparalleled durability and longevity in the market. The 6.8 model, categorized as “Mid-Rise,” specifically caters to the elevated wind loads prevalent in taller residential and commercial structures. Choose Eyewall Armor® 6.8 Accordion for unrivaled performance and protection that exceeds industry standards.
The Eyewall Armor® Streamline (SL) presents an affordable residential accordion system option.

It successfully meets the identical testing and code requirements, carrying the same approvals and evaluations as the 6.8 System. The SL Accordion has been skillfully optimized for strength and cost efficiency, specifically tailored to meet the needs of the residential market. Choose the Eyewall Armor® Streamline (SL) for a high-value solution without compromising on performance.
The Eyewall Armor® High-Rise (H.R.) Accordion System stands as the pinnacle of design, capable of meeting the most rigorous testing requirements and withstanding the highest wind loads worldwide. While sharing the same exceptional features as our standard 6.8/SL Accordion Systems, the H.R. System is specifically engineered to cater to the needs of high-rise, high-performance structures. These buildings demand wind loads surpassing those of residential and mid-rise constructions. With an impressive height span of up to 15′-6″ and testing pressures exceeding 300psf, equivalent to wind speeds well beyond 300mph, the H.R. System surpasses all existing codes worldwide. Additionally, the H.R. System meets the stringent essential facilities code requirements, elevating the large missile speed from 50 feet per second to 80 feet per second. To put it into perspective, a 2 x 4 object traveling at 80 feet per second can penetrate a block wall effortlessly. Choose the Eyewall Armor® High-Rise (H.R.) Accordion System for unparalleled protection in the face of extreme wind conditions and stringent code demands.
