TruProtect is a patented product –for shielding roofs from hail damage. –for providing a noise barrier. –for protecting from mold. –for insulating attic and interior or exterior walls. –for protection from fire and smoke damage
Origin of a Great Idea
1982 TAMU student Moving
Problem Attic temp heats and cools entire house Acts like a blast furnace during summer
Problem Must control attic temp! Insulate? Keep heat out during summer cool inside Keep cold out during winter warmth inside Save money thru energy savings Save ozone layer? Help eliminate green house gases
Origin of a Great Idea Now that I know about the problem, how can it be fixed?
A Great Idea Stalls 1983 – Patent search 1932 – Conflict
A Great Idea Revisited 2002 –Surely there has to be a way to reach the goal!
A Great Idea Reborn August 2005 –Patent issued for hail damage prevention AND insulation sound barrier mold and fungus retardation fire retardation
All testing preformed following UL and ASTM specifications. All labs UL and ASTM certified.
ASTM E84-04 Fire spread test –Omega Point Labs: San Antonio, Texas ASTM Thermal Test (R-factor) test –Architectural Testing: St. Paul Minn. ASTM E90-04 Sound Transmission Loss Test –Acoustics Systems: Austin, Texas UL 2218 Class 4 hail impact test –Architectural Testing: Southlake, Texas ASTM D , ASTMD T Mold and Mildew Resistance –Progressive Coatings: Jacksonville FL. Tests Conducted
Insulation 4 times the R-factor of fiberglass Reflects 98% of applied heat Stops heat-to-cold loss by 98% 6 dead air zones 7 reflective layers Less expensive than fiberglass Easy installation
Temperature directly under shingles – 222º
Temperature under TruProtect – 108º
Hail Damage Protection Pads hail impact. Cushions to prevent structure damage. Tests indicate 50% less surface damage. Tests indicate 100 % less structure damage. Trampoline-like effect on hail stones.
Side by Side Class 4 Hail Impact Test
Impact Spots for Test
Noise Barrier 9 noise reflector surfaces 6 dead air zones Combines to naturally soften noise. Highest STC number for ½ material Weighs 8oz. per square foot
Sound Transmission Loss Test
Sound Chamber with TruProtect in Place
Protection from Mold and Fungus No toxic chemicals Stops Black mold and fungal growth from developing Stops airborne allergens from these Healthier life style.
Fire Protection Class A fire rating Class A smoke rating Tested at 1860 o F Buys escape time to save lives. If a fire does develop, slows progression
Fire Test Tunnel
After 10 Minutes in 1860º Tunnel
Second 8 foot section barely touched
Installation Can be cut with a knife or saw. Requires no protective clothing. No toxic particles emitted.
Most houses plywood decking asphalt saturated felt or tar paper shingles rafters
Normal roof configuration
Houses with TruProtect
House with TruProtect Added to New Roof asphalt saturated felt shingles TruProtect rafters plywood decking
House with TruProtect Added When Replacing Shingles asphalt saturated felt shingles TruProtect rafters plywood decking
Roof configuration with TruProtect
Apply new roofing material over TruProtect
TruProtect is tough and durable
House with TruProtect Added in Walls Exterior of home –Apply to exterior of wall studs. –Apply sheet of OSB or plywood. –Wrap with Tyvak. –Brick. –Apply R-19 fiberglass to the interior stud spaces. –The result is an exterior wall of R-47! Interior of home –Apply TruProtect next to studs. –Apply sheetrock over TruProtect. –Texture and paint.
Photographs of Installation
Savings –TruProtect saves money by Reducing heating and air conditioning expenses. Reducing the size of HVAC unit required. Estimates are that installation of TruProtect will pay for itself in 12 to 24 months. Saves energy Saves the environment New energy bill allows for at least $ in tax incentives for addition of more efficient insulation
Pricing All prices for FOB shipped from Lubbock, Texas. Ask your TruProtect representative about contractor discounts that reduce the price of TruProtect to as low as $1.90 a square foot.
With the cost of electricity increasing...
and with the cost of heating fuel increasing..
Wouldnt the addition of TruProtect make sense for your home or building?
