Wind load calculation in a few minutes

In order to find the ideal fixing solution, compliant with professional standards, an individual wind load calculation has to be done for every building. Our free calculation tool FOS WindCHECK® quickly and easily works out exactly, what is needed, without the hassle of having to apply complicated formulas.

The FOS® tool calculates the following:
  • wind loads on the basis of various factors, e.g. topographical and geographical location, building height, roof shape and pitch.
  • the resultant fixing requirements in individual areas of the roof.
The results show:
  • which storm clips are best suited to the particular tile design.
  • how many storm clips you will need for the task.
  • number of clips required for fixing different roof areas.
  • which type of installation is the most suitable, e.g. fixing of each tile, every second tile or every third tile.
