Ontario, Calif. (Dec. 6, 2013) — IAPMO's Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) is pleased to announce that California-based Lane-Aire Manufacturing Corporation was granted UES Evaluation Report ER-1998 to reference the 2012 and 2009 International Building Code® (IBC), the 2012 and 2009 International Residential Code® (IRC), and the 2010 California Building Code® (CBC). ER-1998 states that the Lane-Aire Skylights as shown in the report satisfy applicable code requirements. This allows for the specification of Lane-Aire Skylights by architects, contractors, specifiers, and designers, and approval of installations by code officials. It also provides code officials with a concise summary of the products' attributes and documentation of code compliance.
Products that are reported on an IAPMO UES Evaluation Report 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 Lane-Aire Skylights product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods, and other factors to determine the products are code compliant.
"Lane-Aire Manufacturing Corporation is extremely pleased with ER-1998 on our Lane-Aire Skylights," said Don Harms, president and CEO. "UES provided us a world class report, covering all the various aspects of our skylights. UES delivered as promised."
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: "Lane-Aire Manufacturing Corporation can now reference its ER-1998 for their Lane-Aire Skylights 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.
