In the present draft guideline of the Natural Hazards Group (NHG) on construction hail protection, recommendations on loss prevention and reduction are systematically edited. They based on loss experiences in the past and recent years and on current hazard assessments, illustrated with loss patterns and loss figures. In this connection, exterior building components such as facades and roofs, as well as their extensions, e. g. photovoltaic-systems, are particularly directly exposed. They must therefore be protected accordingly. In the meantime, standardized hail tests and building material or components with approved hail-resistant are available (see also www.hagelregister.com). It should also be taken into account that extreme weather events will increase according to scientific climate projections and experiences in last years in Europe, which is why the topic hail protection will become increasingly important.
