Professional Roofing



fire; fire classification; changes; revisions; code; compliance

Changes to the latest editions of the model building codes have removed exemptions from fire testing for certain roof assemblies that previously were granted fire classifications without testing. If you are involved in the manufacturing, design, specification or installation of architectural metal panel, metal shingle, tile or slate roof systems, you should be aware of these revisions and the effects they may have on roof assembly designs.
