Storm Repair Technology Launches in the USA
16 May 2018
Stormseal is a storm recovery system that protects damaged roofs or walls with a patented wind, rain and hail resistant polyethylene film. The technology, pioneered in Australia, is now available in the United States.
According to the manufacturer, Stormseal is designed to replace flapping, leaking, flyaway tarpaulins that usually require multiple reattachments using ropes and sandbags, allowing more damage to occur if storms or bad weather continue. Unlike tarpaulins, weatherproof Stormseal stays put for up to a year, according to the manufacturer, preventing further property damage, significantly reducing expenses for insurers and minimizing stress on householders.
“We are extremely excited to bring our innovation to the people of the United States, where in recent times they have felt the brunt of many storms and major weather events,” said Matthew Lennox, Australian builder turned inventor and Stormseal’s managing director. “Around the world, severe storms are becoming more frequent, damaging property, traumatizing residents, stretching emergency resources and costing insurance companies billions. Stormseal is therefore an ideal solution for rapid response and cost-effective resilience in the face of natural disasters.”
