|This Old House Is Already Filming A Segment For Next Season|
David: Kevin O'Connor and crew will be in Richburg, South Carolina visiting the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety.
The segment will focus on the dangers of hail and research being done to protect homeowners and houses. For the first time ever the IBHS will create a hailstorm in their laboratory. I wonder if Kevin will be in there. If you remember, back on the Barrington Beach House project, Kevin visited the Hurricane Research Lab at the University of Florida where he had to feel what it's like to stand in a in front of a Category 3 hurricane with the help of the world's largest portable hurricane simulator.
This test will be in a 20'x30' residential style structure with a variety of materials for the roof and siding. Approximately 10,000 hailstones of varying sizes (1”, 1.5”, and 2”) will be fired at the test specimen using multi-barreled air cannon arrays hung 60 feet above the test specimen. Maybe Kevin won't be in there. Anyway, next season is up and running and will have the info on the new project house when it's made public. Stay tune!
