Deck and Handrail Quality Assurance Program
Ensure that your materials and systems continually meet or exceed ICC-ES AC174 requirements as specified by the International Code Council (ICC). As the demand for plastic, composite, and alternative material deck and handrail products increases and code compliance evaluation reports become more widely accepted by consumers, building code officials, and manufacturers, the need for independent testing and verification of compliance are important in both growing and sustaining business.
The Deck and Handrail Program consists of semi-annual plant inspections to ensure continual compliance with a facility’s documented quality control system. The program covers manufacturing and extrusion, fabrication, and can cover the needs for code compliance. The program scope can include provisions for code evaluation reports from various reporting agencies.
