IAPMO’s Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) is pleased to announce that No-Burn, Inc., was granted UES Evaluation Listing UEL-5005 to recognize performance under ASTM E84 and ASTM E2768-11. UEL-5005 documents that No-Burn, Inc.’s No-Burn Plus and Plus XTR exhibited a flame spread index of 25 or less and that the flame front did not progress more than 10.5 feet beyond the centerline of the burners during the 30-minute exposure. This documentation allows for the specification of No-Burn Plus and Plus XTR 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.
Products recognized with an IAPMO UES Evaluation Listing have successfully undergone evaluation based on applicable requirements related to the Uniform Family of Codes and the International Family of Codes amongst others. UES staff thoroughly examined No-Burn, Inc.’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods, and other factors to determine the products perform as noted.
“No-Burn, Inc., is extremely pleased with Uniform ES’ decision to include listings in their evaluation program,” said Bill Kish, President of No-Burn, Inc. “The listing option allows us to have documentation of conformance to a specific code-related standard. UES continues to provide a quick turnaround, with reasonable costs. We always enjoy working with UES.”
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), UES operates under ISO/IEC Guide 65, “General Requirements for Bodies Operating Product Certification Systems.”
UES Director Richard Beck, PE, CBO, MCP, explains why a Uniform Evaluation Listing is so valuable: “A UES Listing provides independent third-party documentation of key product attributes. The UES Listing program is a win for those products that don’t require a full evaluation report, but desire recognition in support of code compliance. A UES listing provides quick, concise, useful information for code officials and design professionals. We are excited about this new service and how it can benefit the construction industry.”
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. By combining these recognitions into one concise report, prepared by an internationally recognized product certification body, the UES program reduces cost and increases value.
