New Testing Certification for PAC Tite-Loc Plus Panel




Petersen Aluminum has recently completed the FEMA 361 Hurricane Impact testing.  The FEMA 361 document  addresses the design and construction of community safe rooms which will provide protection to a large number of people (anywhere from 12 up to several hundred) during hurricane events.  The latest edition of FEMA 361 meets and exceeds the design criteria set forth in ICC-500, Standard for the Design and Construction of Storm Shelters.


Specifically, the assembly must consist of:

  • 20 GA or 18 GA Steel  Decking
  • Uplift pressures in excess of  -150 PSF for the corners of the building
  • Minimum 40 MIL “peel and stick” membrane – No 30# felt
  • 180 Degree seamed panel to meet above pressures (as is Tite-Loc Plus)
  • 5/8” Dens Deck in assembly to achieve fire rating
