ICC | MIAMI-DADE COUNTY APPROVED | EPD | TDI | NFPA 285 | SEISMIC ZONES
International Code Council Evaluation (ICC)
TAKTL is recognized by the ICC-ESR as compliant with IBC and IRC 2012, 2015, and 2018 for ALL construction types and Class A Interior applications per AC 90, ASTM C-1186, and AC10 for Quality Management Program. AC 90 refers to the Acceptance Criteria outlining the requirements for testing and documentation, and AC 10 refers to standards for a Quality Management System (QMS) and third-party auditing of the QMS.
In order to be recognized by the ICC as code compliant, a wide variety of tests—strength and durability, hardware and anchor pullout/freeze-thaw, combustibility and flame/smoke, and full-scale wind load and fire propagation—must be performed on prisms, panels and full-scale wall assemblies (ASTM E330).
TAKTL has been manufacturing to the reference standards since its inception and has had a third-party audited Quality Management Program in place since 2013.
Miami-Dade County Approved (NOA# 21-0408.05)
TAKTL has received The Miami-Dade Notice of Acceptance (NOA). This approval indicates that TAKTL has passed tests for large-missile impact resistance in the highest velocity wind zones. Products in this category comply with strict installation methods and can withstand the impacts of hurricane force and airborne debris.
Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
The independently verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a document that describes the full life cycle of TAKTL’s products and communicates their environmental impact in a measurable way that is comparable to other materials in the same product group. The EPD complies with the ISO 14025 standard.
Texas Department of Insurance Evaluation Report (TDI Sub ID 9599)
TAKTL panels have received a Product Evaluation Report from the Engineering Services Program of the Texas Department of Insurance for High-Velocity Wind Zone in accordance with the 2018 International Residential Code and the International Building Code.
NFPA 285 (Fire Propagation Test)
NFPA 285 test is required for an ICC Evaluation Service Report (ESR). Although TAKTL is non-combustible and a Class A material, the ICC requires verification of a system assembly. This test was performed on a ‘Rainscreen’ wall assembly with AVB/WRB membrane, continuous mineral fiber insulation and full open panel joints.
Approved & Installed In Seismic Zones
Working closely with engineers and jurisdiction authorities, TAKTL and its attachment systems have been customized and approved for a variety of projects and facade designs, including projects in Hawaii, Southern and Northern California, Alaska and many other seismic areas.
