External Wind Rated Hoarding
Wind load is the force acting on a hoarding caused by wind hitting, passing over and around the hoarding. It is affected by the wind speed which can simply be defined as the rate at which air is moving in a particular area. It is a fundamental atmospheric quantity caused by air moving from high to low pressure, usually due to changes in temperature. This movement causes a wind load on a structure.
Any temporary hoardings that are exposed to wind loads must be capable of withstanding that load.
The wind speed that the temporary hoarding must withstand can be measured in metres per second (m/s), kilometres per hour (km/h) or the wind load in kilopascals (kPa). The wind load is site specific and is determined by many factors including terrain, shielding and topography.
It is important that you understand the wind speed of your construction site location, so the correct external hoarding is used.
If a hoarding is exposed or could be exposed to outdoor elements (for example, if there is a roller door or other external access points within the hoarded area), then you need an external wind rated hoarding. It is important to have an external wind rated hoarding that provides a physical barrier to protect the public from construction day and night for as long as the project requires. As TITAN’s external wind rated hoardings are freestanding, they can be modified throughout construction to suit your project requirements.
TITAN is the leading provider of quality Engineer Certified wind rated hoardings. With an extensive suite of configurations available, separating the public and the construction site has never been easier.
All of TITAN’s wind rated external construction hoardings are Engineer certified to Australian Standards AS 4687, AS 1720.1, AS 1170.0, AS 1170.1 and AS 1664.1.
