    Even though the importance of protecting windows from windborne debris under strong winds, there are still no available building codes or standards for their protection to building cladding in Japan. By contrast, some specifications for cladding performance under impact from windborne debris, including testing methods, exist in some foreign country and ISO standards. It is necessary to investigate the impact performance for roof tiles, representative windborne debris in Japan, in order to make domestic codes or standards. We made a new designed air cannon which can propel not only steel balls and a lumber but also a roof tile as missile. A series of impact tests based on ISO 16932 was conducted on laminated glasses by various missiles. This paper described the results of the impact performance and proposed standard missiles those include a lumber missile with equivalent destructive power to roof tiles.
