DuPont introduces in-home personal protection from dangers of hurricanes

stucco, siding or brick exteriors of homes are not designed to stop the dangerous missiles created by the high wind speeds of hurricanes and tornadoes. Also, hurricanes can also spawn tornadoes in an instant. Kevlar puts a virtually impenetrable barrier between residents and windborne debris, one of the leading causes of injuries during both hurricanes and tornadoes."

Discovered by DuPont in 1965, Kevlar is an organic fiber in the aromatic polyamid (aramid) family that combines high strength with light weight, and comfort with protection. Kevlar is five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis, providing reliable performance and solid strength. This unique combination of attributes also helps protect members of the military and law enforcement from harm that can come in many forms including bullets, shrapnel and knives.

"The DuPontTM StormRoomTM with Kevlar uses the same molecular science and high-performance material found in the bullet-resistant vests that help protect military personnel and police around the world," said DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems Technology Leader Roger Siemionko. "By capturing both the strength and flexibility of this advanced fiber and our safety knowledge, the DuPontTM StormRoomTM with Kevlar helps provide an easily accessible safe haven from hurricanes and tornadoes."

The DuPontTM StormRoomTM with Kevlar looks like a small room inside a house or garage. Both the inside and outside of the storm shelter can be finished to match the walls of a home. The room is ventilated and electricity and plumbing can be installed. It is ideal for both existing homes and new home construction with a concrete slab foundation. Installed by an authorized building professional, the room can also be added to a new or existing garage with a slab concrete floor.
