Fastening and storm protection – how to make the CREATON roof as solid as a rock
Wind is an extremely cunning weather phenomenon; it not only hits surfaces and produces a lot of pressure, it also produces a second rather more treacherous effect. If the wind rebounds from a surface, turbulence is created that includes special suction effects. This effect acts much more powerfully on flat roof structures than pitched roofs. Germany is divided into four wind zones and, depending on the geographical location of the property, supplementary protection of clay roof tiles and concrete roof tiles can be mandatory. Of course, the mathematical calculation of required additional protection of clay roof tiles and concrete roof tiles – which may be requested by the insurance company for example – is part of the design of a roof.
