Damage caused by windstorms and associated adverse weather conditions place a significant burden on the insurance industry on an international level. The development of products to mitigate such damage is therefore becoming a commercial viability, and with the onset of accelerated climate change may become essential. This paper seeks to investigate the effectiveness of a roof netting system as a means of maintaining the structural integrity of tiled pitch roof buildings under strong wind conditions (in excess of 40m/s). Air flow over a pitch roof generates uplift forces over portions of the roofs surface. If uplift forces result in the generation of windward openings within the roof structure, the result can be the loss of large portions of the roof due to the pressure differential between the interior and exterior of the structure.
