After buying his beachfront home just three months ago, Lee Perry has already gone through two major storms.
It's costing him a lot of money trying to build the sand back up, so he decided to invest in a protect-tube, a 100-foot-long, 26-foot-wide, and six-foot-high structure, which will protect the beach and homes against major storms. If necessity really is the key to innovation, this is a prime example.
The tube eventually replicates a natural sand dune becoming the all important barrier that works "with" the forces of mother nature.
If you want to find out more about the protect-tube, you can go to www.advancetechnology.com, and someone will come out to do a free on-site assessment.
