Cladding Wind Loading

Take action in early design to lower your project risk and increase overall safety through fast, iterative cladding analysis.

Why Cladding Loading Analysis Matters

Understanding cladding wind loads not only allows you to adhere to building codes, but has major impacts on cladding choices down the line. By using our more refined pressure mapping, designers save time dealing with unexpected surprises and save cost through informed material selection.

Identify façade issues early

Improve occupant safety and comfort

Reduce overall carbon footprint

How it works

The Orbital Stack simulator runs pressure coefficients on the entire façade of your building at a resolution of 1-4 meters, returning not only mean values but the more meaningful minimum and maximum pressures. This means you can see predicted pressures in real-time while instantly iterating to find your ideal configuration at the conception stage.

Think beyond the building code with Orbital Stack.

What users are saying

“This tool gives you the opportunity to look at the right type of preliminary information relatively quickly, so you get closer to your final design right away. As of right now, building codes only infer what a project’s surroundings might do or ignores them altogether, but Orbital Stack actually shows you”—Principal and Leader of an international engineering consulting firm.
