Protect your rooftop HVAC equipment from increasingly frequent hailstorms.
Protect rooftop HVAC equipment from increasingly frequent hailstorms. Weather and climate-related insurance losses have more than doubled every decade since the 1980s. Reports of 2-inch hail have increased by a factor of 5 since the 1950’s and doubled since the early 2000’s, with similar increases reported for hailstorms overall.
Even small hail can damage rooftop HVAC equipment by bending and denting fins, which in turn blocks air flow and reduces operating efficiency. And larger hail can cause much more severe and costly damage.
Permatron HailStop Hail Guard PVC netting protects your investment in HVAC equipment. Designed to deflect airborne objects and protect delicate fins, Permatron’s HailStop is easy to mount across the any type of equipment air intake fins. In addition, it can be layered behind PreVent Equipment Protection filters for protection of airborne debris from dust particles to large hailstones. Some of the added benefits of our hail guard netting include:
HailStop hail guard netting is made of a rigid black polypropylene with diamond shaped openings. The netting is lightweight and extremely easy to install. HailStop can easily be cut to fit using scissors or utility knife. HailStop hail guard netting can be easily installed using Permatron’s plastic mounting kit. The plastic holding clips have a moveable/locking tab that opens & closes for secure installation & easy removal and cleaning. The plastic mount clips come in 2 height sizes so that outdoor air intakes and equipment can be protected using both HailStop and PreVent filter screens.

I think that the plastic hail guard that Permatron offers is a great product. Because of the height and length it fits almost any piece of equipment on the market today easily. The ease of installation with your unique clips is great since it can only be correctly installed one way. This product allows contractors to offer hail guard at a reasonable price where quite often the end user wouldn't have any coil protection because of the cost of buying and installing expanded metal or a retro factory hail guard.Trane Supply
I installed the HailStop coil guard today. My customer was pleased. I picked up a handful of gravel and thru it directly at the coil and it bounced right off. I was impressed. Will you get me a quote on another 3000 ft with hardware? I don't think that is going to be enough to do the entire job but should give me a good start.Cornerstone Mechanical, Nashville, TN
