Storm Catcher Hurricane Wind Abatement Screen Clears Final Hurdle for Broadened State Approval

Fort Myers, FL, April 03, 2006 --( The Florida Building Commission has issued State Approval #6288 to the Storm Catcher Hurricane Wind Abatement Screen, making Storm Catcher the largest manufacturer of State-approved Hurricane Wind Abatement Screens in the United States.

Storm Smart, the Parent Company to the Storm Catcher division, was recently named as one of the Ten Largest Manufacturing Companies in Lee County, according to the Economic Development Council of Lee County. While Storm Catcher restricts itself to manufacturing and wholesaling of the Wind Abatement Screens, its network of over 150 dealers, scattered across the Southeastern United States, are keeping demand for this product at a premium. Brian Rist, President of Storm Smart, states “We are ramping up production of the Storm Catcher Screens to an all-time high. With the addition of a new 18,000 square foot production facility in the Gateway area, we strive to keep turn-around time to a minimum.” With this dramatic growth, coupled with the addition of a few key corporate alliances, Storm Catcher production is anticipated to increase exponentially over the next six months, facilitating the need to add second, and possibly third, shifts.

Storm Catcher has been functioning under Florida Building Code Approval #FL804 since February 2004, but this additional approval lends itself to broader engineering standards, allowing for Storm Catcher to be used on larger openings, while keeping the standards of strength and durability seen in the original approval.
