In Miami Dade, all pool enclosures designs need to be able to support wind loads of 170 MPH Exposure “C” category II. In Broward and Palm Beach Counties, the requirements are 165 MPH. These construction wind loads for screen enclosures were implemented after hurricane Andrew and updated in 2010 to ensure all new aluminum enclosures have a better chance of withstanding hurricane wind forces.

In addition, a perimeter footing is required. In most cases, an 8″x 8″ will comply if the new footing is connected off the existing concrete deck. There may be requirements for a larger footing when there is no existing deck to attach the footing (for example a “paver area”).
