ICC-ES President Mark Johnson explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. "McFarland Cascade can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements," Johnson said. "Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency."
ICC-ES thoroughly examined McFarland Cascade's product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods, and other factors to ensure that the product is code-compliant. McFarland Cascade product manager Gary Maulin says, "We are proud to be the first composite decking manufactured in China to receive an ICC-ES evaluation."
