ARB Guidelines and Request Form
ARB Hurricane Shutter Information
ARB Requests for hurricane shutters of either the accordion type or removable panel type will be approved. The color of the accordion type hurricane shutters should closely match the color of the exterior wall on which they are mounted. Accordion type shutters may be closed and panel type shutters installed when a Hurricane Watch is announced by the National Weather Service. Accordion type shutters must be opened and panel type shutters must be removed within five (5) days or the following weekend, whichever is longer after passage of a hurricane or hurricane watch. The POA will permit permanent window treatments in areas of limited accessibility of a polycarbonate material that is clear, flat (not corrugated), that meets Miami-Dade hurricane shutters standards, and is contoured to fit the window (also known as Lexan shutters).
