Calculation of snow load - Calculate Now
Particularly in the mountainous regions of Germany, in Austria or even in Switzerland, there are repeated reports in the media about the fatal effects that can be caused by excessive snow loads on roofs.
In Austria, for example, the calculation of snow loads on buildings is subject to the so-called "Eurocode Önorm EN 1991-1-3". The effect of the (area-related) environmental influences as well as the calculation of the "permissible" loads caused by snow and ice are of a very decisive importance for the individual planning and organization in the course of the erection of supporting structures of all kinds.
The calculation bases specified in said Önorm concern, among other things, the choice of the required building materials or also the calculation of the respective permissible dead weights of all corresponding building materials.
An equally important assessment basis for "house building" in snow-loaded areas is not only the static calculations, but also the structural condition of building components or the actual execution of building constructions.
In the worst case, any deviations or incorrect calculations can result in serious structural damage (collapses, etc.). Therefore, you can calculate the maximum roof load with the snow load calculator.
