Advanced Hurricane Technology or 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 1993 under the name Imagen USA. Since then our family has developed new products that set the standards in the Hurricane Protection Industry.

We are the pioneers of end retention and are leading the industry in hurricane and security protection.

The TZ long metal folder series is the uniquely built next generation of the proceeding THAKO and ZR models. Uniting centuries of Swiss engineering, this long folder utilizes the time tested and innovated Vertical Force Drive (VFD) design principle, which is second to none.


With the machine stands forming the shape of “rigid C-frames” and its vertical tool alignment, the VFD produces the maximum amount of vertical clamping force. The TZ long metal folder uses the perfect combination of design principles and technology to produce the perfect fold every time for a very long time.
