NEW AND IMPROVED FOR THE 2017 Florida Building Code!
- Easy Instructions
- Expanded Zone 4/5 explanations
- Easier To Read Wind Pressures
- Digital Seal Ready
These charts are sold as engineered sealed documents and meet the requirements of the selected Florida Building Code (FBC) using “ASD Method” per ASCE 7-10 for the determination of required wind pressures for Components and Cladding. The FBC allows sealed versions of these master plans to be used to submit for a window, door, or shutter with certain limitations as one of three approved methods. These charts are applicable only to 1 or 2 residential family dwellings – not for apartments.
