FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Research Report for NyloDeck® Confirms Building Code Compliance
Decking material span ratings underscore NyloDeck’s strength and performance traits
Covington, GA – November 19, 2012 – Building materials manufacturer NyloBoard, LLC, whose patented process uses recycled carpet fiber and VOC-free resins to create exceptionally strong, durable and eco-friendly products, announced it has received its Code Compliance Research Report (CCRR) 0183 from Architectural Testing, Inc. for NyloDeck®, its newest product. NyloDeck is a unique composite decking and dock material that contains no wood or PVC. The product was recently introduced this fall at DeckExpo 2012, a national deck and railing industry event.
The CCRR confirms NyloDeck’s compliance with ICC-ES™ Acceptance Criteria, AC-174 and ASTM D 7032. Receiving the CCRR demonstrates that NyloDeck has met the rigorous requirements set forth by the International Code Council (ICC), who ensures the safety and reliability of building products and provides safeguards for people at home, at school and in the workplace. The report further documents compliance with the requirements of the 2012 International Building Code (IBC), 2012 International Residential Code (IRC), and the 2010 Florida Building Code (FBC) for deck span ratings.
“Successfully meeting code requirements and third-party testing validates our commitment to producing attractive, versatile NyloDeck boards that are deemed safe and will be reliable for years to come,” said Craig Jacks, vice president, Sales and Marketing at NyloBoard.
NyloDeck is rated for a uniform live load of 100 lbs./psf when installed on support framing spaced at up to 24 inches on center and 200 lbs./psf on framing spaced at up to 16 inches, making it one of the strongest deck products on the market. The unique patented manufacturing process combining recycled carpet fiber with VOC-free resins has resulted in a product with superior strength and durability whose technology has been proven in the marine industry and other building applications for nearly a decade.
“Most decking materials are limited to framing at 16 inches per 100 pounds, whereas NyloDeck can be used for spans up to 24 inches, which is a testament to our commitment to innovation and superior performance,” said Stuart Dimery, national product manager, NyloBoard. “NyloDeck’s proven material properties – combined with its durability and natural wood appearance – are unmatched in today’s marketplace,” added Dimery.
These span ratings also allow for flexibility in design and reduced material costs as deck boards can be run at a 45° angle with 16 inch spacing, rather than 12 inches, which is the maximum for most competitors. This is particularly important when considering the replacement of an existing deck.
“At NyloBoard, innovation is inherent in our culture. We continually work to advance our manufacturing technologies so that our products can look great, exceed market expectations and deliver peace of mind for both contractors and homeowners,” noted Jacks.
