Best Practices in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines.

Ingo Stelzer, head of Kuraray's Technical Consultancy Group within the global PVB Division, co-authored a recently published study on the impact of hurricanes on façade constructions in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines.

The study examined specific aspects of cyclone-resistant façades, such as different façade technologies, best-practice solutions, legal requirements and design requirements in the Asia-Pacific region. The study concludes that there is still a lack of standards for certified cyclone-resistant façades, especially in the world’s most prone area to wind-related natural disasters. 

The study, which was created with input and cooperation from other Kuraray colleagues - especially Malvinder Singh Rooprai - can be found here:
