Disaster Decoded – Houston

Hurricane Force Winds

According to the NOAA Inland Wind Model, in the worst-case scenario category 5 hurricane our datacenter would receive wind speeds of 110-127mph. TRG is built to withstand a wind load ratio of 185mph, far meeting and exceeding our theoretical maximum. 

70% of roof damage following a hurricane is due to loose HVAC equipment rolling across the membrane that can cause many small holes. TRG has zero rooftop equipment, meaning no possibility of rooftop damage. This is completed by our state-of-the-art 4-inch thick sloping roof with fully redundant leak protection.

This is the wind speed model for the worst case scenario; a category 5 hurricane at a forward motion of 24 knots otherwise known as “The Big One”, which has yet to happen.

Other Disasters Quantified & Conclusively Mitigated

Torrential Rain / Flooding

TRG is 65 miles inland from the coast, lies outside of the 500 year floodplain and is 4ft above grade. We also pride ourselves on our state-of0the-art 4-inch thick sloping roof with fully redundant leak protection.
