General

The test method in this Standard determines the wind resistance of vegetated roof assembly when subjected to dynamic wind flow and dynamic wind uplift in laboratory conditions.

Applicability

Testing in accordance with the test method in this Standard is applicable to modular and built-in-place vegetated roof systems.

Exceptions

Testing in accordance with the test method in this Standard is not applicable to mechanically attached membrane roofing system as defined in Clause 3 of CSA A123.21.

Terminology

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.
