An accident report from the PSI Environmental Geotechnical Construction indicated a technician witnessed the effectiveness of FallGuard® Skylight Hail Protection Screens. The screen was tested by dropping four, two pound weights through a 3″ ID PVC pipe from about 14 feet. The hail protection screen was inspected after each weight was dropped, and no damage was observed — the welds were not broken and the wire was not visibly damaged.

Don’t Risk Hail Damage

Every year, hail causes significant damage to roof coverings, flashings, skylights, air conditioning units, duct work and sheet metal enclosures, but by installing Hail Stone Skylight Screens, these damages can easily be prevented.
