Tiny and quaint Manalapan is big in beauty, a beach side community with exceptional beauty and maintains its ground against large scale development keeping it low density residential community alive. The most recent census shows a population 406 and that can grow to about 550 during season, located on the both the east and west side of the inter-coastal waterway sharing Hypoluxo Island with the Town of Lantana.
Manalapan offers a museum in the sea with The Lofthus Underwater Archaeological Preserve, showcasing the wreckage of the merchant ship Lofthus in 1898. Access to the inter-coastal waterway and beaches are amazing with secluded areas, but between 2004 and 2005, Palm Beach County experienced direct hits from 3 category 3 hurricanes, two of which, Frances and Jeanne, coming within the same month. Storm Ready offers a full lineup of hurricane shutters from leading manufacturers, each of which are designed to provide protection to your home while meeting each homeowners needs and budgets. Learn more about each type of hurricane shutter that Storm Ready can install on your Manalapan home below.
Accordion shutters are our most commonly requested type of storm shutters. These lightweight shutters are designed to withstand the strongest of winds, and are quick and easy to deploy and retract. Thanks in part to the Spanish/Mediterranean-inspired architecture in Manalapan Bahama shutters are a very popular option for storm protection on homes. These tropical-style shutters are permanently affixed over windows, and in addition to protecting windows from flying debris, can also provide energy-efficiency benefits by blocking strong sun rays. For an additional level of defense against strong winds, many homeowners choose Roll-up shutters, which are permanently mounted above door and window openings, and similarly to a garage door, can be rolled down over the opening and locked into place. Storm Ready even offers models of roll-up shutters that can be automatically deployed and retracted, perfect for second homes or businesses. In the event of a power outage, these automatic shutters can still be manually overridden and deployed. Storm panels are the most budget-friendly option for storm shutters while still offering homeowners with the added level of protection they require during a major hurricane. Each panel is made from steel, aluminum, or Lexan, and must be hung over windows or doors before the storm arrives, then removed and stored away until their next use. For homes that have screened in outdoor space, Storm fabric is a must have. Hurricane force winds can shred regular screens to pieces, and in some cases, even lift the entire screen enclosure structure off your house. Storm fabric is designed to be quickly and easily taken down from the structure, leaving just the aluminum bars for the winds to safely pass through.
