• For the third consecutive year, The International Hurricane Protection Association (IHPA) has recognized a single company in Mexico as meeting the quality and standards for membership in its exclusive body.
• This is measured by incorporating ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials standards, and an analysis of how the systems performed in actual storms and hurricanes.
• Mexico and the Caribbean have long been behind in protection aspects common in places like Florida, which mitigate damage during storms. It is hoped that this recognition will begin the process of promoting a culture of protection that will ultimately protect both lives and jobs.
Quintana Roo, Mexico, 7th April 2021, ZEXPRWIRE– Hurricane Solution, a Mexican company focused on hurricane protection through a ballistic canvas screens, celebrates its third anniversary as the only member of the International Hurricane Protection Association (IHPA), an organization based in Florida, comprised of industry leaders in hurricane protection. “We are very proud to be the only company outside of the United States, recognized by the IHPA. For us, it is a responsibility we take very seriously, and being recognized by the IHPA gives hotels and consumers something they can count on when protecting the tourism industry”, says Fernando Loría, Commercial Director and Hurricane Solution Protection Specialist.
Hurricanes are the most costly natural disaster in the Caribbean, and not being prepared for them cost over $200 Billion USD in damages in 2017 alone. Even more importantly those numbers are the human lives that prevention saves.
“We cannot prevent the formation of storms, but we can be ready when they do come” says Loria. “A building that is adequately protected can have little to no damage, regardless of the power of the storm. One that is not or insufficiently protected, can be completely destroyed” he adds.
As part of its commitment to the IHPA, Hurricane Solution seeks to promote a culture of prevention of the damages associated with hurricanes, and shares recommendations for action in
accordance with the hurricane season, which begins in May. “In Mexico, especially in the Caribbean, which is a hurricane risk zone, there is a real need for a culture of prevention. Sadly the culture is one where people only seem to think about protection when the storm is bearing down on them and it is already too late. If we can change this, we can saves both lives and jobs.” concludes Fernando.
