Hurricane proof log house 'Fortessa Caribbean 200' was designed to withstand winds over 200 miles per hour
Hurricane proof log house Fortessa Caribbean 200 is designed to withstand winds of more than 200 mph ( or 90 meters per second), that’s even faster than Hurricane Irma in 2017. However, it can be extended to withstand winds up to 250 mph by simply increasing wall thickness by 50% and changing rafters material to stronger, duo glulam beams.
In general, most of Scandinavian log houses are storm proof for winds up to 60 meters per second as standard. However in this case, our engineers have put a lot of extra effort into this exceptional house design and made lots of innovative changes to traditional log house construction. Structural design is calculated according to Eurocode 5
Hurricane proof log house construction:
Massive gluelam log walls are made of certified & tested extra strong GL 24 graded glue laminated pinewood beams, made of wood harvested from responsibly managed Scandinavian forests.
Dovetailed corner joints give extra strength and all walls consists of heavy stainless steel anchors from top to bottom to make the log house extra strong and keep it securely fixed to its foundation.
Security glass doors and windows are all protected with hurricane proof window shutters.
The roof is a Ruuki Classic Nextgen sheet metal roof from Finland, 6dB quieter than any other metal roof and, of course, it is hurricane proof. Colors available for roofing are red, white, gray, limestone, and sometimes blue is available on special order.
The color scheme for your house is up to you, as we can provide all of the colors found in NCS color charts.
