Wind valves will help increase hurricane resistance on Florida schools

March 27, 2013 |

Wind valves that harness the force of swirling winds to keep the roof in place during storms will be used to help seven Florida school roofs withstand hurricane-force winds. The schools in Seminole County, Fla., will be renovated under roof-replacement contracts worth more than $2 million. The resilience of a wind-vented roof has already been proven at the Miami International Airport. The valves can only be used on flat or low-slope roofs.
