Technologically enhanced wood manufacturer Kebony® today announced it has received International Code Council® certification for its Kebony Clear Radiata Pine and Southern Yellow Pine decking products, according to Kebony USA Sales Manager Andy Hehl.
Kebony Clear decking in 22mm and 38mm thickness were tested and evaluated under the ICC criteria for Division: 06 00 00—Wood, Plastic, and Composites; and Section: 06 05 73.13—Preservative Wood Treatment Section: 06 15 33—Wood Patio Decking. The products passed testing for preservative-treated wood, structural integrity and decay-resistance. ICC-ES thoroughly examined Kebony’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant.
“It was extremely important to us that we achieve ICC certification for our decking products,” Hehl said. “The codes benefit public safety and support the industry’s need for one set of standards without regional limitations, which, as we expand in North America, is crucial for Kebony.”
Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving products in construction projects under the International Code Council name.
For the North American market, Kebony Clear decking is available in a multitude of dimensions to accommodate a wide range of exterior (and some interior) applications.
