With ICE Panels consisting of two lightweight materials, people often think that when faced with high windspeeds they would simply topple over, creating a large unwanted mess. However, once fully assembled, ICE Panels have been proven to be just as or sometimes even more effective than conventional building materials when faced with this specific type of weather condition.
ICE Panel building envelopes are constructed using steel connector plates and screws to fasten the panels together through steel framing. The combination of these two materials will resist pull-out better than the traditional framing of nails into wood.
The EPS or GPS core of the ICE Panel is also a key element when dealing with increased wind speeds. It allows the wall to flex when hit with strong winds rather than fighting the force and being damaged.

Here’s a real-world example: 2019’s Hurricane Dorian proved to be no issue for an ICE Panel home being constructed on Grand Bahama Island in the Caribbean. This custom waterfront ICE Panel home was able to withstand hurricane-strength wind speeds and flooding with minimal damage reported. This demonstrates a key benefit of the ICE Panel — its strong resilience to extreme weather conditions.
