Huber Engineered Woods LLC Receives ICC-ES Listing
Report validates Zip System® Wall Sheathing IECC compliance

     Huber Engineered Woods LLC is the most recent manufacturer to receive an ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Building Product Listing (ESL-1016). The report demonstrates Zip System® Wall Sheathing compliance with requirements for use as a component in air barrier assemblies as referenced in Section: C402.4.1.2 of the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code® (IECC). ZIP System® Wall Sheathing panels are OSB wood structural panels having a laminated exterior facer. It is used as combination wall sheathing, air barrier and water-resistive barrier.
      “Huber Engineered Woods LLC is pleased to confirm our product’s compliance with the International Energy Conservation Code through the ICC-ES listing program,” said Ken Hix, Director of Codes and Standards, Huber Engineered Woods. “This listing, along with our ESR-1474 report for this product, which includes supplements to the Florida Building Code and California Green Buildings Standards Code tells code officials and specifiers that they can be confident when approving and selecting ZIP System® Wall Sheathing panels.”
     The ICC-ES product listing includes testing samples taken from the market and/or the supplier’s stock to verify compliance with applicable codes and standards.  Issuing the listing also involves factory inspections, and assessment and surveillance of the manufacturer’s quality system.
      “ICC-ES provides a complete comprehensive building product listing program for our clients,” said ICC-ES President, Shahin Moinian. “Code officials look for our listing reports because of its rigorous review and solid reputation for evaluating new building products.”
     The new building product listing program offers manufacturers an additional certification option that indicates to code officials they are approving products that comply with consensus standards referenced in building codes. To qualify for the program, a product must meet requirements in a standard specifically listed in the applicable I-Codes. Products already referenced in the International Building Code® (IBC) or the International Residential Code® (IRC), and used as intended by the codes, also qualify for an ICC-ES listing.
     When a product successfully meets applicable requirements, ICC-ES will issue the listing within eight weeks or less of the initial application. To find out if your product qualifies for this program, call ICC-ES at 1-800-423-6587 ext. 1 to speak with a Connect+ Customer Care representative.
