When Hurricane Irma made landfall in the United States, the Florida Keys were hit first and suffered the worst damage in the country. The September 2017 storm first hit Cudjoe Key as a Category 4 hurricane with hurricane stained wind speeds of close to 150 mph and an estimated storm surge of at least 10 feet. The storm was massive and pummeled the Florida Keys with 12 inches of rain, heavy wind and reports of tornadoes. A number of our customers with homes in the Keys expressed how impressed they were with Epulum railing’s weather resistance.
This house is directly next to the ocean and sustained damage to the land and building. The Epulum railing on their balcony and stairs that externally connect the two floors were in “excellent condition”. The homeowner also noted “haven’t seen a scratch or corrosion of any kind.”
Another customer in the Keys noted that they expected the railing to vibrate with the high winds, but was surprised how “steady” and “unmoving” the Epulum railing handled the hurricane storm.
