About

At Hail Alert Technologies, we have leveraged the latest advancements in weather technology and pioneered a revolutionary automated service for building owners. HailFlash® provides 24/7 hail event monitoring at any address in the United States. Once our system detects a potentially damaging hail event at a monitored property, it delivers a highly accurate, building-specific alert to owners and their representatives. This allows commercial property owners to:

 Accurately and quickly identify hail damage losses
 Mitigate additional consequential damages through immediate response
 Ensure that no hail-related property loss is ever overlooked again
 Avoid unnecessary and costly business interruptions
