hurricane-resistant synthetic thatch

Wind rating are complicated and when people try to simply things, they miss the point. Many people try to correlate wind ratings for roofing products to actual wind speeds. But that’s not correct. See, wind ratings are determined by standards set by ASCE. The standards specify wind uplift pressures, not merely wind speeds.

See, wind ratings for roofing systems considers pounds per square foot. Meanwhile, there’s no actual direct correlation to wind speed.  Wind speed is just one of five factors civil engineers use to determine the wind rating needed for any given roof.

WIND RATINGS: CALCULATING UPLIFT PRESSURES

Usually, state or local rules specify what calculation to use to determine the necessary wind rating. Civil engineers calculate the needs of their projects. Still, it comes down to these five basic factors:

  • building height
  • building location
  • surrounding terrain
  • building openings
  • building use

Then, they plug these specifics into a formula. That way, they know the pressure in pounds per square foot that the individual structure might have to withstand. That specifies the wind rating necessary for the building.

Endureed products exceed many different requirements even when others can’t. This includes wind ratings. Our shingles consist of reeds bound using a patented stainless steel binding system. The patented design makes a huge difference in strength against wind uplift pressures.
