Our customers already know how great the Deck Jig is for surfacing decks – now they can enjoy additional confidence that comes with meeting ICC-ES code requirements
Huxley, IA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Kreg Deck Jig manufactured by Kreg Tool Company, recently received an evaluation report (ESR#3258) from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that this concealed deck fastening system from Kreg meets code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving Kreg Deck Jig in construction projects under the 2009 International Building Code (IBC) and the 2009 International Residential Code (IRC).
ICC-ES President Mark Johnson explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “Kreg Tool Company 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 Kreg Tool Company’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant. “This is a culmination of a lot of hard work and effort by our employees and the ICC-ES,” said Kreg President Todd Sommerfeld. “Our customers already know how great the Deck Jig is for surfacing decks – now they can enjoy additional confidence that comes with meeting ICC-ES code requirements.”
