Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) September 29, 2012
Red Devil, Inc. today announced its FireBlock Foam-N-Fill has received an evaluation report (ESR#3402) from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that the polyurethane foam meets code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving fireblocking sealants in construction projects..
ICC-ES President Mark Johnson explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “Red Devil 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.”
FireBlock Foam-N-Fill expands to fully take on the shape of annular cracks and voids where wood has been penetrated by construction plates, pipes and conduits. It has a Flamespread index of less than 25 and has been tested to establish that it maintains the integrity of fireblocking when wood is penetrated.
“With an ICC code report readily available for our professional construction customers, they can quickly and easily decide if Fireblock Foam is a good fit for their project,” said Jason Ringling, Director of Marketing , Red Devil, Inc. ICC-ES thoroughly examined Red Devil’s FireBlock Foam-N-Fill product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant.
