These charts are sold as engineered sealed documents and meet the requirements of the 2020 Florida Building Code (FBC) & 2018/ 2021 IBC using ‘ASD Method’ per ASCE 7-10 & ASCE 7-16 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.
