A smarter, shrinking tarpaulin protects storm-damaged properties

What is the innovation?
When a severe summer storm hit Sydney with hailstones as big as tennis balls, experienced builder Matthew Lennox (Stormseal’s Founder and Managing Director) was tasked with repairs and reconstruction. Over the next two months, in wet and windy conditions, Matt saw several damage claims multiply due to leaking, flapping, flyaway tarpaulins.
Matt thought there must be a better way. So he invented Stormseal.
Stormseal is a strong polyethylene film that heat-shrinks to cover a damaged structure and stays put until permanent repairs are made. Matthew Lennox developed Stormseal’s patented roof cover system with polymer expert John O’Neill.
