Third-Party Certifications

Understanding the importance of today’s building codes and standards, Henry® Company considers third-party certifications as an integral component of its products and systems in order to create effective Building Envelope Systems® solutions.

UL (Underwriters Laboratories) provides third-party certification that Henry® roofing assemblies and roof restoration systems comply with building code and project specification requirements for fire resistance. The UL certification mark identifies products that have been investigated by UL, and found to be in compliance with its requirements. These approved products and systems are listed in the UL Online Directory. UL certification meets minimum building code fire classification requirements.

 

 


FM Approvals (Factory Mutual) provides third-party certification that Henry® roofing assemblies and roof restoration systems comply with building codes and project specification requirements for fire, wind uplift, water leakage, hail and foot traffic resistance. The “FM APPROVED” mark identifies products that meet internationally recognized loss prevention product testing and certification standards. These approved products and systems are listed in the FM RoofNav Online Directory. FM Approvals certification is specified for all buildings insured by FM Global and where the building owner desires a roofing assembly with verifiable comprehensive performance and reliability.


ICC-ES (International Code Council-Evaluation Service) provides third-party certification that Henry® roofing underlayments, water-resistive air barriers and spray foam insulation comply with the building codes and standards noted in the Evaluation Report. The ICC-ES certification mark identifies products that meet product testing and certification standards specified in the applicable ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria. A technical Evaluation Report is issued for submittal to regulatory agencies to help determine code compliance, and is available in the ICC-ES Online Directory. An ICC-ES Evaluation Report certifies that all applicable building code requirements for the subject product category are met.


Miami-Dade County Product Control provides third-party certification that Henry® waterproofing systems, roof restoration systems, roofing cements, adhesives, coatings and spray foam insulation comply with the Florida Building Code for the High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ), consisting of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties only. The Miami-Dade County Product Control certification mark identifies products that meet product testing and certification standards specified in the Florida Building Code. A technical Evaluation Report, or Notice of Acceptance (NOA), is issued for submittal to regulatory agencies to help determine code compliance, and is available in the Miami-Dade County Product Control Online Directory. Testing and performance criteria are typically stricter in the Florida Building Code for the HVHZ than in any other jurisdiction, both in the U.S. and internationally. In addition to demonstrating compliance with the Florida Building Code in the HVHZ, the NOA may be specified by the designer in any jurisdiction where the building owner desires a roofing assembly with verifiable comprehensive performance and reliability.


Florida Building Commission (FBC) provides approval that Henry® waterproofing systems, roof restoration systems, roofing cements, adhesives, coatings, spray foam insulation and roofing underlayments have been certified and validated to comply with the Florida Building Code (FBC). Approval may be granted by the FBC for the subject products and systems to be allowed inside or only outside the Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) that consists only of Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. If approved for use inside the HVHZ, those jurisdictions shall not require additional certification for permitting. The approved products and systems are listed on the Florida Product Approval Online Directory, where third-party Evaluation Reports may be downloaded for review by regulatory agencies to help determine code compliance. A Florida Product Approval certifies that all applicable Florida Building Code requirements for the subject product category are met.


NSF International (National Sanitation Foundation) provides third-party certification that Henry® roof coatings and fitting, pipe, tank and valve coatings and sealants comply with building code and project specification requirements for the health effects of rainwater catchment system components and drinking water system components. The NSF certification mark identifies products that meet internationally recognized product testing and certification standards. These approved products and systems are listed in the NSF Online Directory. In addition to demonstrating compliance with local building codes (where applicable), the NSF certification may be specified by the designer in any jurisdiction where the building owner desires to demonstrate compliance with clean water standards for construction.


CRRC (Cool Roof Rating Council) provides third-party certification that Henry® roof coatings’ radiative properties (solar reflectance and thermal emittance) have been tested and rated according to the CRRC Product Rating Program Manual (CRRC-1). The CRRC certification label identifies products with the measured values, which are also listed in the CRRC Online Rated Products Directory. The CRRC ratings are used to demonstrate compliance with energy-usage reduction requirements for rebates, incentives and green building programs, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), as well as with local energy codes, such as the California Energy Commission Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24).


ENERGY STAR provides third-party certification that Henry® roof coatings comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency specifications for radiative property (solar reflectance and thermal emittance) values. The ENERGY STAR certification mark identifies products that have been investigated by a third-party evaluator and found to be in compliance with ENERGY STAR’s requirements. These products are listed in the ENERGY STAR Online Directory. The ENERGY STAR certification is used to demonstrate compliance with energy-usage reduction requirements for rebates, incentives and green building programs.


Third-Party Audits and Sampling: UL, FM Approvals, ICC-ES, Miami-Dade County Product Control, Florida Building Commission and NSF International all independently require that the manufacturer’s quality assurance program is audited regularly to assure that the products being manufactured are the same quality as those originally examined as part of the original testing and certification program. CRRC periodically collects samples of certified products to verify test results for products being manufactured are the same as those originally tested for certification.
