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.
