Hurricane & Miami Dade Approval
Cambridge Architectural mesh defense systems make a strong impression - literally.
Nowhere is this strength more evident than in coastal areas subject to hurricane-force winds. Cambridge has specifically engineered patented attachment hardware for this environment meet the requirements of coastal areas, these mesh systems withstand wind gusts to 176 mph.
When confronted with high winds, Cambridge's Velocity attachment hardware releases tension on the mesh and then re-tension it automatically after conditions have passed. Attachment brackets have been modified for these systems to minimize structural stress on both the brackets and the building during high wind conditions. The system can also be specified to protect buildings from airborne debris in these conditions.
Velocity attachment hardware has acquired a Miami-Dade County Certificate of Competency by passing large missile impact tests.
The virtual indestructibility and lifecycle of Cambridge’s metal fabric reduces maintenance costs, and assures that there will be no need for replacement materials, lending itself inherently to security and safety systems. Cambridge defense combines the elements of strength and design into one enduring and sustainable package.
