Wind Load Ratings

Wind loadings are undertaken to determine the peak wind gust speed likely on your site in accordance with Australian Standard AS4055 “Wind loads for housing”

The wind classification of a site depends on a number of factors such as the location of the site within Australia, the terrain and topography surrounding it and the shielding offered by surrounding buildings and trees.

Soil Industries will attend your site (usually at the time of a soil test) noting the relevant features and determine its rating. With this information a building designer can determine the appropriate window specification and bracing requirements for your house.
