St. Joseph, Michigan, 2020-Jun-25 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — With the surge in COVID-19 victims surging throughout the Southeastern United States, Industrial Fabrics Manufacturer Tarps Now has seen a dramatic increase in open interest in its COVID-19 Protective Products and storm focused Disaster Recovery Tarp Products that help mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, together with products and materials typically sought out in the wake of tropical storms and hurricanes.
Noting the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season officially began in June of this year Tarps Now confirms that it’s already been a busy summer helping its customers with materials used to help isolate airspace, as well as a wide range of advance stocking activities taken in anticipation of forecast tropical storms and major hurricanes. Noting newly emerging COVID-19 emerging “hot spots”, the urgency felt by many consumers has been stoked by weather experts predicting an above average hurricane season that’s expected to be 30% more active than normal, with as many as 16 named storms possibly making landfall in states like Florida, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
With these trends in place, many customers anticipate new state orders to “shelter at home”, with others especially concerned with the potential need to evacuate in the event of a major storm or hurricane. Especially so, if storm evacuation orders result in family members taking shelter with relatives or in public storm shelter forcing close proximity to persons representing a potential infection risk.
As a result of these conditions, consumers are aggressively stocking up on plastic sheeting materials that can be used to create air barriers which can be used to slow the virus laden air flows. Others are stockpiling supplies that help with rapid disaster recovery following major tropical storms and hurricanes.
