In the face of nature’s fury, fortifying infrastructure is paramount.

When homeowners and building owners brace for hurricane season, they face a formidable challenge.

Finding a solution that can withstand the powerful winds, driving rain, and other harsh elements is essential to prevent devastating damage and costly repairs.

Amidst these challenges, green coatings have emerged as the unsung hero.

These innovative, GEI’S (Global ENCASEMENT, Inc.) green coatings offer a reliable and sustainable solution to protect buildings from the relentless forces of nature.

These green coatings are eco-friendly product with Zero VOC's (volatile organic compounds), Non-Toxic, Biodegradable, Water-Based and Class A fire Rated made it an outstanding choice.

The Challenge of Wind Resistance:

Every year, damaging winds from hurricanes, typhoons, and other strong wind events leave a trail of destruction.

While some buildings can be salvaged and strengthened, others are completely destroyed.

Amidst the devastation, it’s not unusual to see a building or house standing tall with its roof and walls intact.

Such structures are typically wind-resistant and better prepared to withstand strong weather onslaughts.

Understanding Wind Pressure and Building Weaknesses:

The key to preventing wind damage lies in understanding how wind pressure interacts with buildings.

Wind pressure increases when it encounters an object. If the object or surface is strong and secure, with no gaps or openings for the wind to penetrate, the damage is minimal.

The absence of pierce points makes all the difference in maintaining the integrity of a building.

Research has identified roofs as the most vulnerable part of a building during high wind events.

Openings in the roof allow harmful wind to penetrate and cause destructive uplift, leading to severe damage.

Thus, turning these susceptible surfaces into strong, seamless membranes is essential to combat wind damage effectively.

Vulnerable Surfaces: Roofs and Walls

It’s not just roofs that are at risk. Wall surfaces with holes and open seams are also prone to wind destruction.

Gaps in these surfaces allow wind to force its way inside, wreaking havoc and often destroying the building and its contents.

The Green Coatings Encasement Solution GEI’S (Global ENCASEMENT, Inc.) green coatings provide an effective solution for creating wind-resistant surfaces.

These coatings can be applied to both roofs and walls, transforming vulnerable surfaces into strong, seamless membranes.

To Sum IT Up:

The case of homes and buildings shielded from hurricanes and other strong wind events serves as a compelling testament to the transformative power of innovation and ingenuity.

Through green coatings, what began as a challenge evolved into an opportunity—to fortify, to protect, and to preserve.

As these buildings stand resilient against the passage of time and the unpredictability of nature, one thing remains abundantly clear: when it comes to safeguarding structures from nature's fury, green coatings reign supreme.
