The BERTHATM HVTM allows you to fit every common window size without waste or extra materials. The appearance is improved by the consistency of the correlation between the standard window openings and the shutters. Each and every standard window opening will have the same uniform appearance. This is a very critical issue to a homeowner. This will reduce wasted materials per unit as much as 5-10%.
The BERTHATM HVTM stacks in about 30% less space than most systems and utilizes a lower profile center mate. This will reduce wasted materials per unit as much as 5-10%.
Fastest Assembly Time
The BERTHATM HVTM is assembled using 12-20% fewer blades and 12-20% less hardware and does not require locking rods. The hinge points have greater tolerance to improve assembly time. This will reduce assembly time and labor per unit as much as 12-20%.
Fastest Installation Time
The BERTHATM HVTM utilizes a direct mounting system for side closures, this eliminates side angles all together. No fasteners to the building and no fasteners connecting the starter strip to the angle. The installation does not require locking rods or locking rod holes to be drilled. You would simply install a header and sill, insert and connect the accordion stocks and you are finished.
The BERTHATM HVTM has a larger hinge point or knuckle to allow for increased tolerances between the components. This will increase the speed of assembling the product and reduce the number of damaged or rejected components. Less rejected components means less wasted time in the assembly process as well as material returned to the supplier.
The combination of deeper corrugation, larger hinge points and pin diameter dramatically increases the overall strength of the system. That has allowed us to decrease the amount of material or weight per square foot and still maintain equal or increased strength throughout the system.
The increased levels of performance will allow you to install taller accordion shutters, or install accordion shutters in areas of the building that demand higher pressures. You can now install shutters in situations that you many have had to install a stronger, more expensive system. During testing our tallest specimens had a blade span of 192", for a finished shutter of 16'-3".
