IAPMO’s Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) is pleased to announce that Minnesota‐based AQC Industries, LLC, was granted UES Evaluation Report ER‐0261 to reference the 2012 and 2009 Uniform Mechanical Code® (UMC), the 2010 and 2007 California Mechanical Code, the 2012 and 2009 International Mechanical Code®, the 2012 and 2009 International Residential Code®, and the 2012 and 2009 International Energy Conservation Code. ER‐0261 provides evidence that AKDUCT® and AKDUCT® Premier both satisfy applicable code requirements. This allows for the specification of AKDUCT and AKDUCT Premier foam by architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and approval of installations by code officials. It also provides code officials with a concise summary of the product’s attributes and documentation of code compliance.
Products recognized under the Uniform Evaluation Service have successfully undergone evaluation based on applicable requirements within the Uniform Family of Codes and the International Family of Codes, as well as codes published by other entities. UES staff thoroughly examined AKDUCT and AKDUCT Premier product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product was code compliant.
“AQC Industries is extremely pleased with ER‐0261 on our AKDUCT and AKDUCT Premier,” said Jon Jungers,
managing partner. “We are so excited to be working with such a class organization as IAPMO. It has been nothing
but a great experience getting the listing in place with them.”
The UES program is built upon IAPMO’s more than 70 years of experience in evaluating products for code compliance. Accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the program operates under ISO/IEC Guide 65, “General Requirements for Bodies Operating Product Certification Systems.”
UES Director Richard Beck, PE, CBO, MCP, explains why Uniform Evaluation Reports are so valuable: “AQC Industries, LLC, can now reference its ER‐0261 on AKDUCT and AKDUCT Premier to ensure that code officials quickly have the information required for their decision on approval. Our program also stands out because of stellar customer service and the utilization of in‐house staff along with the technical expertise of professional engineering firms, who are leaders in each area of recognition.”
IAPMO’s UES offers a full range of recognition opportunities, including recognition for the applicable national model codes, as well as Florida, California and various other state codes. The UES program lowers the cost and increases the value to code officials of these reports by combining all of these recognitions in one concise report prepared by an internationally recognized product certification body.
