Richardson, TX (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Fortress Railing Products, a leading innovator and manufacturer of railing products, attains Code Compliance Research Report (CCRR) 0192 from Architectural Testing Institute (ATI), a leading ISO/IEC 17025 accredited building products testing laboratory, for Fortress Fe26 Iron Railing and Fortress Fe26 PLUS Iron Railing.
As reflected in the report, Fortress Fe26 and Fortress Fe26 PLUS have demonstrated the capacity to resist the design loads specified in Chapter 16 of the International Building Code (IBC), as well as Section R301 of the International Residential Code (IRC) when tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC273 which is the acceptance criteria for handrails and guards consisting of metal to be used at interior/exterior ramps, stairways, balconies, porches and decks.
Code Compliance Research Reports are accepted by local and regional code officials nationally and were developed and signed by qualified licensed professionals with recognized industry experience. Ultimately, CCRR provides the evidence, technical information, and professional evaluation that a building official relies upon to determine that a product, component or method of construction complies with a specific code.
“Fortress Railing Products is committed to safety and code compliance,” says A.J. Jesiolowski, Product Manager of Fortress Railing Products, “and attaining CCRR represents peace of mind for everyone involved with our products.”
