The company’s insulated wall panel system, with an interior and exterior steel facing bonded to a poured-in-place insulating polyisocyanurate foam core, complies with Florida Building Code 2014 Section 1405.2.
Brian N. Jaks, P.E., vice president of Sales and Marketing at Green Span Profiles, commented:
Due to the preponderance of hurricane activity in Florida, the state felt an overwhelming responsibility to approve all building products utilized within the state. The State of Florida Building Code is one of the strictest in the nation therefore, we believe these certifications are significant achievements.
