Roof Covering Impact Certification Program

Obtain proof of your product’s superior performance

Validate the safety and performance of your roof covering materials by certifying that your products meet the requirements of FM 4473 and/or UL 2218 and attaining an impact classification ranking of 1 to 4 (4 being the best). As one of the most vulnerable components of any building, roof covering materials can often be subjected to extensive damage by hailstones, resulting in claims for repair or replacement. For this reason, insurance companies and building owners consider damage prevention and reduction and often select products rated for impact resistance.

Program participation includes:

  • Initial review and approval of Quality Control Programs.
  • Evaluation of test reports and data for compliance with minimum requirements.
  • Ongoing manufacturing facility audits to determine continued compliance with Program Guidelines.
  • Periodic random product selection and independent testing.

Participation in this certification program provides your customers and end users with the assurance that products bearing the program label are faithful reproductions of the samples that were independently tested and rated, that the test parameters were consistent for all products providing accurate results for comparison of performance, and that your manufacturing facilities maintain a quality control program monitored for compliance with the program guidelines through unannounced plant audits and performance testing conducted on randomly selected products on an ongoing basis.
