Our company based in Connecticut is dedicated to the protection of human lives and the homes they live in. All too often we have witnessed the destructive forces of mother nature's awesome power wreak havoc on our communities. Something had to be done to put an end to this destructive cycle that we have been powerless to prevent for decades. Hence the birth of the Stormlock System.
We demanded answers from building officials, structural engineers, and various other government and private developers as to why our homes faired so poorly when confronted with a severe hurricane. We felt it necessary to conduct our own investigation into this long overdue study into structural resistance to catastrophic hurricanes, what we found was quite disturbing. After poring over hundreds of hours of hurricane footage, and forensic examination of construction debris, our researchers were finally able to identify the culprit, POOR CONNECTIVITY.
In almost every structure examined there was evidence of poor rafter to top plate connection. This was clear evidence that this was a major contributor to the systemic structural failures we have witnessed all too often. The construction industry have relied on primitive out of date method of connecting roof rafters to wall framing for years. This method consists of (TOE NAILING) the rafters to the top wall plate and adding a thin sliver of metal (RAFTER TIE), both these methods are totally unacceptable and are completely useless. The rafter tie will soon be deemed "non compliant" by ICC as it serves no useful purpose in keeping the roof attached to the house.
Our aim is to provide a system of change nationwide to bring about a higher level of safety and durability that will meet the demands of the modern day challenges placed on them by some of the most destructive forces ever witnessed by mankind. Stormlock Systems will go beyond the boundaries of human creativity in our efforts to bring about new Innovations that can make our homes safer. Our product is scheduled for distribution beginning January 16 2020. Please visit email@example.com for further information.
