Davis Tripod Roof Mount - Wind Rating
« on: September 10, 2017, 04:17:45 PM »
My area will be seeing much (but not full) effects of Irma.

I have my Davis Tripod mount on the roof bolted in.

Just wondering if anyone knows the highest wind velocity it can handle?

Hoping it won't snap off/come undone.

Thanks

That i believe will be all down to how you mounted it, not that actual tripod itself

Thanks,

In that respect the roofers put it on - that way if they did it was covered under the warranty :)

I believe they were instructed to follow what I gave them - 2 bolts on each leg - diretly into the beams

I was more worried about it bending, but don't think that will happen.

While we are expected to get gusts upwards of 60 MPH today, my house is somewhat shielded by nearby trees.  As I looked across the street trees were swaying,but
my wind wasn't registering much :)

I appreciate your reply.. Crossing fingers :)
