Screen Wall Wind Speed Test (VIDEO)

A screen company conducts a test to see how much wind power their product can withstand- watch below.

In this video Screen Tight, a company that develops and patents mesh guard, showcases a test they designed to see how much wind their screens could withstand before breaking. The test was fairly simple; they built a frame from a wall of screen material and pointed a giant fan directly at it. Then they turned the fan on and gradually amped up the speed. The screen wall, made from patented PVC fiber-reinforced composite, was able to withstand wind speeds of over 140 mph. In fact, the frame gave in before the screen tore, which is pretty impressive. To see the test in action watch the video above.
