Resilient Building Technology That Survived Philippines Typhoons Now Available in United States

Gulf Shores, Alabama (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Riji Dixon, CEO of newly formed Defender Homes, Inc., recently acquired the exclusive US rights to patented and affordable construction technology developed in the Philippines to build homes which withstand hurricane and tornado winds up to 200 mph.

The company is completing its first Showcase home in Gulf Shores, an area which has been hit several times by hurricanes. The technology was invented by an engineer in the Philippines about 13 years ago, and has gained significant acceptance with over 30,000 of these homes built there, and almost 60,000 worldwide in 15 countries.

In addition to their superior high wind resistance, these structures are built to withstand the most common threats of mold, fire, and termites. Due to their unique construction, the homes also resist water incursion, small arms ballistics, sinkholes and earthquakes up to 7.0 on the Richter scale. “In addition to homes, this process is perfect for the military and schools,” Dixon said.

Engineers from across the nation have visited the Showcase home in Gulf Shores and are extremely impressed with the quality and safety provided by the structure. Dixon is a builder on the Gulf Coast, and saw firsthand the devastation high winds bring when his home and neighborhood was destroyed a few years ago by tornadoes in Arkansas. “Too bad the school in Moore, Oklahoma was not built with our technology, had it been, those kids would still be alive,” Dixon added.

The Defender building process is “green”-- using up to 75% fewer trees and is energy efficient. Compared to traditional wood frame homes, Defender structures can anticipate a 40% reduction in heating & cooling costs and insurance reductions of 50%.

Defender empowers builders and developers to deploy its resilient building technology in their communities by providing the patented materials and training. Interested parties should visit Defender websites for more information and arrange a tour of the Showcase home in Gulf Shores, AL. or
