A new emergency protection system for storm-damaged buildings is among the latest innovations to receive commercialisation assistance through the Australian Government’s Entrepreneurs’ Programme.
Sydney-based Stormseal’s weather protection system is a polyethylene film that provides secure, temporary protection from wind, rain and hail after catastrophic weather events or during construction.
This cheaper, lighter and more weather-resistant alternative to tarpaulin is set to reduce insurance claim costs and ease the burden on natural disaster victims. The company will use its $450,000 grant to conduct commercial trials and installation training as well to secure sales.
