DuPont Opens Storm Shelter Test Facility

Department: Business

DuPont has opened its first storm shelter test facility at the Chestnut Run research site in Wilmington, Del. The firm says it will use the multi-million-dollar facility to test different materials for the DuPont StormRoom, which is reinforced with its high-strength aramid fiber Kevlar. The room can serve as a laundry or powder room when not needed to protect people during hurricanes and tornadoes. Separately, DuPont just signed an agreement to provide the shelters for sale to new-home buyers in 30 states through national home-building franchise Epcon Communities.
