-- As part of an ongoing effort to support the specifying efforts of engineers and architects within the metal decking industry, ASC Steel Deck today announced updated Roof Deck (ESR 1414) and Floor Deck (ESR 2408) ICC Reports referencing 2006 International Building Codes. ASC Steel Deck Vice President Dave Golden said the updated reports from the International Code Council helps complement the already strong reputation ASCSD has built with architects and engineers over the past 30 years. “With the updated and easily accessible reports, engineers and architects can now specify ASC Steel Deck roof and floor decking with even greater ease and confidence,”
said Golden. “Condensed, yet more specific information make these reports user-friendly and reflect the recently enacted standards in the 2006 IBC, added Golden. ICC-ES President John Nosse explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “ASC Steel Deck can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements,”
Nosse said. “Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the building department.”
ICC-ES is the United States’ leading source of technical information on building products and building technology for code compliance. A nonprofit, public-benefit corporation, ICC-ES performs technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials. The evaluation process culminates with the issuance of reports on compliance with the major U.S. building codes. ASC Steel Deck Roof Deck (ESR 1414) and Floor Deck (ESR 2408) evaluation reports can now be found online at www.ascsd.com, or by calling 800-360-2477 and requesting a printed copy.
