ICC 600 - 2008: Standard for Residential Construction in High-Wind Regions
The scope of the standard is to specify prescriptive methods to provide wind resistant designs and construction details for residential buildings of masonry, concrete, wood-framed or cold-formed steel framed construction sited in high wind regions.
This standard provides prescriptive requirements and other details of construction for buildings sited in wind climates of 100 to 150 mph in 10 mph increments.
This standard provides an adoptable, contemporary set of prescriptive requirements that supplement the International Residential Code provisions. The prescriptive requirements are based on the latest engineering knowledge and are intended to provide minimum requirements to improve structural integrity and improve building envelope performance within the limitations in building geometry, materials, and wind climate specified.
