Insurance Institute demonstration shows advantages of following wind resistance standards

February 06, 2013

A demonstration by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety shows how powerful winds affect concrete-and-steel buildings built with different techniques. One building was constructed using traditional methods, while the second used better screws, steel cleats, wind-rated doors and walls reinforced with vertical steel rods eight feet apart. The more strongly built building fared far better.
