The land area of the United States is a whopping 3,796,742 square miles, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With this much land, climates are different in Florida from, say, Indiana. This is why James Hardie created the HardieZone System. What is the HardieZone System? Let’s take a look at it and how it helps you.
Florida is not known for heavy snowfalls. Indianapolis is, of course. And that gives you a glimpse into the two zones of the HardieZone System: hot and humid, and cold and wet.
The HardieZone System divides the country between northern tier states with cold and wet weather and southern tier states with hot and humid weather.
To determine where to (literally) draw the line between HZ5 and HZ10, James Hardie considered eight environmental factors:
- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation
- Average temperature range
- Humidity levels
- Average rainfall
- Topographical features
- Average snowfall
- Hail totals
- Hurricanes (which only applies to some regions of the country)
Your friends in Florida will find HZ10 products from James Hardie designed to deal with hurricanes and constant high humidity. You will find HZ5 products designed to handle snow, ice, and freeze/thaw cycles.
