No one wants to inspect their exterior after a storm and find loose or cracked panels. That can let water or insects in and means costly repairs. In Test #3 Resistance to Fixing, Trespa’s “Next Materials House” R&D center demonstrates how they test for resistance to extreme pulling such as high wind conditions.
In this test, Trespa applies extreme pressure to the panel to see how much the siding can take before the screw comes loose or the panel splits. They prove it will meet and exceed your expectations. Have a look:
This brief video from Trespa's Quality R&D gives you a visual of how the Resistance to Fixing test is done.
Cladding That Won't Get Bent Out of Shape

"So the screw doesn't move but the panel is still getting abused by a storm? Now what?" Siding panel strength is important since a bent panel is going to look awful and cost money to replace. No one wants broken or damaged on their home or building.
In Test #4 Mechanical Strength, Trespa’s R&D shows the durability and flexibility of the panels. The siding will perform extremely well, and stay in place as installed, even when subjected to high pressure.
