AeroEdge® is significantly better than conventional edging.
AeroEdge® Impact Comparison
AeroEdge significantly reduces uplift across all wind speeds and all building heights.
Videos of full scale testing, further demonstrate the vastly improved resiliency of roofs with AeroEdge® (see ‘Reducing Uplift, Reduces Damage’).
Example: AeroEdge® reduces the uplift from max. CAT 4 winds (157 mph) down to the uplift ‘as if’ only max. CAT 2 winds (111 mph)!
Example wind field maps: Below are wind field maps of 2004 Hurricane Charlie generated from NOAA data. The maps show the approximate extent of max. wind speeds ranging from tropical storm to hurricane CAT 4 just prior to landfall. Although a major hurricane, Charley’s relatively small diameter confined the areas of max. winds to a narrow swath as it moved inland and the winds began to subside.
