Limitations on Use

Wind uplift and seismic movement:

  • Wind uplift has not generally been an issue, however the question is often asked. Marshall are currently working with their German supplier on a solution for any situations which may have wind uplift issues
  • EVO, EVO Slim and EVO light sub-structure systems can be assembled to allow for seismic movement/expansion (e.g. fix/ float 2 x edges) however no testing has yet been done
