NRCA announces updates to Roof Wind Designer

NRCA Roof Wind Designer
November 29, 2023 at 4:00 p.m.

Learn about new updates to the online wind-load calculator specifically designed for roofing professionals.

NRCA has announced updates to Roof Wind Designer, an online wind-load calculator intended to offer roofing professionals an easy way to determine roof systems’ design wind loads for many commonly encountered building types subject to code compliance.

The free web-based application has been updated to include the capability to generate reports on wind uplift pressures based on the newest version of ASCE 7, ASCE 7-22, “Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures.” Users will be able to view calculations for a wider range of building sizes and configurations, including partially enclosed and partially open buildings at basic wind speeds as granular as 1 mph increments.

Additionally, ASCE 7-16- and ASCE 7-22-based reports now include design wind-resistence capacities for gutters based on ANSI/SPRI GT-1’s G-1 and G-2 test methods.

Roof Wind Designer initially was developed with support from the Midwest Roofing Contractors Association and North/East Roofing Contractors Association. For more information, visit roofwinddesigner.nrca.net.
