Is there a resource for ratings of various types of roof installations? I am evaluating a roof screwed directly to the purlins with no standing clips or other devices. It appears to be very weak. How can i find a wind resistance rating for this system? David Dillard, AIA [email protected]

David, contact the manufacturer of the roof panel. They should have, at the very least, a section property load table for the specific panel. Since the panel is a "thru fastened" panel system, the section property load resistance should be acceptable to conduct your analysis. Be sure you know what gauge panel you are working with and the purlin spacing as well......
