LEXINGTON, KY -- April 27, 2007 -- Plasticon International, Inc. (Other OTC:PLNI.PK - News) announced today that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Pro Mold, Inc. has recently started initial production on The "Hurricane Clip." The "Hurricane Clip" is designed to protect homes and businesses from potentially damaging hurricanes, the "Hurricane Clips" are a replacement for traditional ply wood used by most residential and commercial property owners.
The "Hurricane Clip" is made of a durable plastic that attaches to windows and door frames while holding a screen made of pliable fabric. Over the years many property owners have resorted to ply wood for protection from damaging winds and flying debris swept up from strong hurricane winds. The pliable fabric offers the added protection of allowing air to pass through windows, keeping the pressure inside stabilized while preventing flying debris from penetrating the home.
"Hurricane Katrina had estimated damage around $81.2 million making it the costliest storm in U.S. history. We believe that this clip could change the way people think about home protection. Most of the hardest hit areas over the last three years have used protection that has been around for many years and there has been very little improvement. Having one of the "Hurricane Clips" could save a lot of lives and cut damage costs due to Hurricane winds and debris by millions of dollars," stated Jim Turek, CEO and President of Plasticon International, Inc.
