Like wine, Hurricane Storm Boards (HSB) and Hurricane Storm Shutters (HSS) age well. Unlike plywood, they last for 50 years. Unlike aluminum panels, they handle safely and cost much less. They can sustain repeated onslaughts of heavy rains and storms. They passed the Large Missile Impact Test and Cyclic Load Test conducted by Hurricane Test Lab and met the requirements of the Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zone Building code.

Made from recycled plastics, HSB and HSS replace plywood used in emergency board up on homes and commercial buildings. Hurricane Storm Boards come in four sizes; Hurricane Storm Shutters come in flat and curved panels, ready to protect your properties against estimated 35 hurricane days this year, versus average 24.5 hurricane days.

The Hurricane Storm Board structure led to the invention of EnvironFoam Homes, DRI featured product at the MIT Startup Lab presentation last March. DRI finalized the packaging of EnvironFoam Homes (EFH) and began distributing free DVD demos and taking orders.

EFH features include walls, floors, roofs of same plastic composite material, unit dimension 8’ x 8’ x 8’, fold like cardboard box, fit in a shipping container, weather proof, pest proof, shock absorbent, reusable, affordable, 20 years life, and three unskilled workers can set up one home in 90 minutes.

Unlike tents, EFH or Quick Buildings restore dignity to the homeless, victims of earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, fighting and fire. After surveying the South Asia areas affected by tsunamis last December, President Clinton commented "they (victims) cannot live in tents forever". EFH present a practical solution to tent relief. EFH, made from infestation-proof materials, can be used to store new tents, medicines, water and food, and fit in the business plan for disaster relief advocated by the Business Roundtable, an association of the chief executives of 160 U.S. corporations.
