After five years of extensive development and scientific testing, they have achieved unparalleled performance. Proven to largely eliminate hail damage from hail stones even larger than softballs and providing a personalized early warning alert service. This sets a new standard of hail storm alerting, at a surprisingly affordable price.
The Highway Loss Data Institute indicates the average claim for hail related automobile damage is over $3,000 since 2008. In 2011 alone, a survey of automobile insurance providers cited over 244,000 hail damage related claims. This data still only accounted for 2/3’s of the auto insurance market since some providers do not distinguish hail damage related claims from other weather related claims.
“The immense consumer interest level for our revolutionary system is well documented. But getting the word out about our launch time frame, to consumers, the automobile insurance industry, car dealerships and alike, remains paramount to ensure our move to traditional market status,” said Michael Siciliano, President of Hail Storm Products and inventor of the hail protective car cover. “Consumers and businesses stand to save $100’s of millions in hail storm related losses every year. Given the high performance of our product, complete solution and affordability, this is filling a demand that has never had a real solution,” added Siciliano
The HAIL PROTECTOR System has been featured on “Invention USA” on HISTORY® channel and “Invent This!: Daily Planet” on DISCOVERY® channel. Their testing included an air cannon which shot six pounds of ice, at once, at the cover at 80mph. That’s equivalent to over 10 softball sized hail stones traveling at terminal velocity. Another segment featured three-pound cantaloupes, four-pound pavers and a five-pound watermelon. See HISTORY® channel and DISCOVERY® channel footage here, and a recent interview with The WEATHER Channel®.
The lightweight portable cover has three included power options. It runs on eight “AA” batteries for about one hour, cigarette lighter plug for two and a half hours, without affecting the starting power of the vehicle, or virtually indefinitely on AC outlet power. The HAIL PROTECTOR System also includes a free lifetime subscription to its early warning hail storm alert service. Among the user friendly features is a hail forecast for the day and a 30 to 60 minute warning of hail or the potential for hail near multiple addresses, the user registers on the HAIL PROTECTOR website ,or by selecting GPS tracking if the user is on the move. “This level of hail storm alerting is beyond anything on the market,” said Steven Krug, Executive Vice-President of Hail Storm Products and co-Inventor of the alert service.
The forecast feature, offering many hours of advance warning, enables a composed installation. Designed to take the panic and pain out of hail storms, the 30 to 60 minute address specific alerting offers ample time for the remote controlled five minute activation. The system is offered in three sizes for cars and three for SUVs/Trucks and retails for between $299 and $399, plus shipping, depending only on vehicle size.
