  • This software was developed and perfected by Licensed Professionals for their own use. You can be certain of its applicability and value.
  • Over 600 units of this Software have been sold and are being used in design offices around the country.
  • This software generates the data required in Section 1603 of the Florida Building Code as well as the International Building Code including the design wind pressures to be used for exterior component and cladding materials.
  • Just provide a few simple answers about the project (most chosen from drop down menus) and the software develops all Required Basic Engineering Information in a ready-made table which is Copied and Pasted into the Construction Documents. This makes it simple to use, convenient and thorough requiring minimal effort on your part.
  • This software works for Fully Enclosed Structures up to 60 feet in height, regularly shaped;  all occupancy types.
  • The table Lists the Required Information (per 1603) in the Exact Order Given in the Code so plan-examiners can easily find it in one location. This helps assure them that you know and are complying with the new Code. This reduces the number of comments that you have to handle.
  • Choose from Tables of Standard Windows and Doors to Instantly Generate a Form Showing Specific Opening Sizes for your Project and Their Unique Design Pressures.
  • Additional Table Added to Calculate the Wind Pressures for Any Sized Opening Any Distance from a Corner.
  • NEW! Ability to save up to 20 separate projects.
  • As of Late 2017 we have suspended required registration for this program, greatly increasing its value. You are now able to place this Template anywhere on your computer desktop or even in a DropBox folder. This program can be accessed via a shortcut from any in-office or laptop computer with access to the DropBox. This is a very valuable change in policy.
“I just purchased your Wind Calculator plus and wanted to write you and let you know that I really like your software. I also looked at trying to find other software out there, but couldn’t find anything worth paying for. For the price of the software I feel that it is a real benefit to architects and I think that you have made the file so easy to use. So thank you for offering this.  You guys did a great job, and I just wanted to take a moment to let you know! Please keep updating it as the codes change and I will glady get the new versions as they come available. Thanks again….”
