Auburn, Alabama (PRWEB) August 12, 2015 -- V2 Composites’ StructureWrap fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) system for structural strengthening of concrete was recently certified by the International Code Council Evaluation Services (ICC-ES), a subsidiary of the ICC, as meeting building code requirements. The certification provides a basis for building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers and others to use or approve the StructureWrap system in construction projects under the international code. ICC-ES thoroughly examined V2’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code compliant.
A nonprofit, limited liability company, ICC-ES is the United States’ leading evaluation service for innovative building materials, components, and systems. ICC-ES Evaluation Reports (ESRs), Building Product Listings and Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) Listings provide evidence that products and systems meet requirements of codes and technical standards. Reports from both listing programs are now accepted in Canada.
ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “V2 Composites can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that their FRP products meets I-Code requirements. Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource with the highest quality of product review for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency,” explained Moinian.
“This certification further validates the confidence we hold in the strength and performance of our products. The process to achieve ICC certification was long and arduous, but was well worth our efforts to increase our structural strengthening opportunities worldwide,” said Kevin Horne, president of V2 Composites.
