International Hurricane Protection Association
The IHPA is a not-for-profit organization which unites and represents the Hurricane Protection Industry.
We are comprised of suppliers, manufacturers, contractors, architects, engineers, testing laboratories, governmental agencies and code writers dedicated to the protection of life and property from the devastation associated with hurricanes.
We seek to insure the public's safety and welfare by endorsing the testing and approval of legitimate hurricane protection systems and through information and educational programs.
The IHPA strives to be the industry leader on all issues that affect the hurricane protection industry by unifying the suppliers, manufacturers, contractors, engineers, architects, code writers, and government officials.
Provide quality hurricane protection systems, information, and education to insure the public's welfare and safety, therefore minimizing the loss of life and the destruction of property associated with a hurricane.
In October of 2000 a group of Industry leaders came together with an idea to unite and to provide a voice for those involved in the Hurricane Protection Industry. Legislation and building codes were in a constant state of change but with no input or direction from those whose business it was to provide the associated products and services. With many hours of dedicated service by the founders and those who have followed, the IHPA has grown into a significant industry voice.
