This Solar Attic Fan takes a direct hit from flying debris in 2007 Central Florida Tornado and remains installed in working condition
Three tornadoes ripped through central Florida on February 2, 2007 killing at least 19 people and destroying hundreds of homes. The first tornado hit a retirement community, The Villages. It was a high end EF-3 tornado with winds exceeding 160 mph.
The tornado was no match for this quality solar attic fan. The unit took a direct hit from flying debris and sustained only slight damage. The unit remained installed and the integrity of the roof was not compromised. The unit survived in working conditioned because of its high quality construction including heavy gauged aluminum used on all well made solar attic fans.
