The shield is of a single layer construction which can reduce the wind speed by up to 62% without affecting light transmission and ventilation. This can be further expanded by adding an additional layer which will reduce the wind speed by up to 72%. Protection against radiant heat is also provided.

The Extra Span Shield has been successfully tested to wind speeds in excess of 100mph.
