  As we're just getting through Hurricane season, we thought we'd share an anecdote from our archives involving a storm, a Catamaran, and our AVCON Thermoplastic Railing System. Back in the 1990's, one of our Hotel/Motel clients in the Norfolk, VA area on the Chesapeake sent us some amazing photos of local damage caused by a severe storm which picked up a Catamaran boat and flung it toward the property far from the shore.

We recently visited the 49th Floor of the Woolworth Building in New York City to see the first completed installation of the custom AVCON railing solution for the project, and are thrilled to share a "peek" with you! In fact besides Batman himself, few but the future owner of this multi-million dollar condominium will be able to see it yet it serves a very important purpose. The railing cannot be seen from street level. The 49th Floor can only be seen by the owner/tenants looking through the windows. The light installations around the railing will light up the building at night. The
