A windstorm consisting of violent winds with 64-72 knots (11 on Beauford scale), have a significant force that is able to cause damage to property and environment. Since 1990, natural disasters have affected about 217 million people every year especially windstorms disaster contributed of world disaster in 15% loss of life, 27% number of events and contributed 45% of economic loses and increasing every year. High winds cause significant structural and environmental damage. However, the research on ideal and effective windstorm protection or wind barrier method are rather limited. The used of this Wind Barrier for deflecting incoming wind as a novel method to reduce severe damage to properties with the ability to withstand windstorm's forces. The barrier is formed y joining several aerodynamic ellipse-shaped beam or 'S' shape curves arranged horizontally equidistance from each each other made of a set of blades and aerodynamic rod shape in between superposed on one another at regular distance for deflection of high wind velocity, at the lower end of the last 'S' shaped curve can be attached a wind blade to be used to generate electricity.
