FOS WindCHECK explained

Quick and easy calculation of the required number of storm clips

In order to find the best fixing solution for your roof tiles, you require a wind uplift calculation for each construction project. Our free calculation tool helps you find out exactly what you need quickly and easily without any 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

Here's how to do it:

Simply click FOS WindCHECK® and enter the required data for your roofing project step by step. In just 3 minutes you will have the complete calculation.
