“After extensive evaluation, we're excited to share that our thin-clad exterior wall system meets the tough standards for the newest Florida Building Code, including the High Velocity Hurricane Zone section,” says Craig Swirzon, Thin-Clad Product Manager. “What the testing concluded, and the Miami-Dade approvals confirm, is that when our thin-clad stone is installed with Laticrete's MVIS system it can be used for areas anticipating up to 202.5 mph winds, specifically for Building Risk Categories I through IV.”
