We Are AHT

Our Story
Advanced Hurricane Technology (AHT) started with $600 and a dream – the product of Jaime and Fernanda Zabala who immigrated to Naples, Florida from Ecuador looking for the American dream. AHT began as a family owned and operated storm protection service provider in Naples under the name Imagen USA. We’ve now grown into a leader in hurricane protection, with our commitment to innovation evident through our Research & Development efforts, where we constantly push the boundaries of protection technology.

Since its inception, AHT has been guided by its values—fairness, honesty and integrity—which are embedded in the way we operate our day to day, the products we manufacture and sell, and most importantly in the people who are a part of the AHT family.

Our Mission
AHT promises excellent products designed for hurricane protection, shielding your family, property, and investments.

Our Expansion
AHT’s success is in great part due to our customers. To better serve our clients we have grown into over 200,000 sq ft of storage and manufacturing space, in Ft. Myers, Florida and have expanded to the mid-Atlantic with AHT DC, the Caribbean with Puerto Rico AHT, and South America with AHT Ecuador. Get a virtual tour of our warehouse.

Love the new roll down. The company is great to work with and the quality of material and labor could not be better. We are so happy we went with AHT. They arrive when they say they will and they do not give you the run around.

The technicians did a great job fixing my Shutter. Very quick. The front office however, is a mess. They overbooked the techs and they arrived 4 hours later than the appointment set. Get your act together front office! You are not doing your workers nor AHT any favors.

Hired them to install hurricane shutters on my house. They did an excellent job and communicated very well. The salesman as well as the labor team both were very professional and I would absolutely hire them again. I had an extremely difficult time even getting quotes from other companies. There are very few professional and reliable shutter contractors in this area, but I assure you this company is not like the rest. 10/10

AHT’s quality of work was outstanding! Our shutters were completed today. Aaron. and all the install staff were very professional, punctual and nice to work with. We had no problems, the installation process was excellent and completed as planned. Quinta and the clerical staff were also outstanding in calling and sending confirmation text messages. It was truly a pleasure working with everyone. We would highly recommend AHT Shutter Services to family and friends. They did an excellent job. 👍👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Installation team was very quick, polite and professional. One day to install the hardware on the lanai and all the windows. Still need to finish up soffit, crank handles and electric hook up for the lanai screens. Overall a good job so far.Update: Electrical/mechanical inspection PASSED. AHT was here the next day to finish up the final details. I would (and will) recommend AHT to everyone

We purchased the double wall aluminum shutter system approximately 9 weeks ago. We were told it would be installed in 8 - 10 weeks. It was installed within the estimated time frame. AHT communicated throughout the process and completed the install in approximately 4 hours. The electrician came the following day. The structural and electrical inspections were done the following day. All passed as expected. We are quite pleased with the product, installation, as well as followup. AHT certainly met our expectations. I would recommend them.

Excellent company to work with. Good communication, the foreman and the crew were efficient and thoughtful. We were a bit disappointed that there was a delay due to a problem, but pleased that they worked hard to minimize slippage , including coming in on a Saturday. . Office staff was very helpful in scheduling electrician and most important, the quality of the work appears very good. We recommend them
