The strength and durability of PICKLEGLASS™ has been validated by an autonomous, accredited testing institution, ensuring the highest standards of quality and safety. Laboratory tests substantiate that PICKLEGLASS™ possesses exceptional wind resistance, demonstrating the capacity to endure hurricane-force winds reaching speeds ranging between 125-200 mph.


Wind load calculation is an essential component in engineering, especially in the design and construction of buildings and structures. This process entails assessing the force exerted by wind on a structure and determining the structure’s ability to withstand such forces.

Stress Capacity Level

EXHIBIT A demonstrates that as the wind speed escalates, there is a commensurate increase in the pressure exerted on the PICKLEGLASS™ structure, leading to a proportional augmentation in the deformation of the overall structure. The graph plateaus at a point indicating the structure’s maximum capacity for wind load, beyond which it cannot sustain without additional reinforcement. At this juncture, significant deformation suggests that these levels are unsuitable unless further strengthened. Through analysis, it has been established that the fence’s maximum sustainable wind load, without jeopardizing the integrity of its joints and screws, is approximately 200 km/h, which converts to 125 mph.

EXHIBIT B illustrates the results of the Displacement Analysis. This analysis shows the displacement variations in the fence structure when subjected to wind loads, which are indicated by red areas on the heat map. Displacement is the positional change in different parts of the structure due to maximum strain. This test is crucial for pinpointing potential weak spots likely to fail under high stress. With a wind load of 125 mph, the heat map highlights red around the steel wire grid’s connection joints, particularly at the court entrances. Notably, the structural integrity of the glass remains intact, which is reassuring given its status as the highest risk factor.
