Hurricanes and Tornadoes - 1 of 14 homes damaged

Tridipanel excelled in rigorous tests given by Mother Nature. For the past ten years, numerous homes have been constructed with the Tridipanel System on the East Coast, the Caribbean and Gulf areas of Mexico and the United States. The homes were built to withstand hurricane force winds. In laboratory testing, the Tridipanels withstood wind loads of 226 miles per hour. Laboratory testing results are available upon request.

Note this small wood gable is the only thing damaged! The Tridi Wall System is so strong that it will not move or shift, thus the main roof tie-downs will hold in place.

Shortly after Hurricane Andrew hit, the Tridipanel homes survived quite well. The others as you can see, were destroyed!

This is a photo of the general area around the fourteen homes built in Homestead, Florida after hurricane Andrew.
