The Steel Framing Industry Association received an Evaluation Service Report (ESR-2457) from the International Code Council. The report covers both non-structural and structural stud and track framing. It also evaluates the structural properties of framing members to the 2006 International Building Code and 2006 International Residential Code. The 2006 IBC serves as the model code for many state and local building codes throughout the Unites States.

“The SFIA is an industry leader in code compliance and is the first industry association to obtain the ICC-ES Evaluation Report current to today’s standards, and which furthers our commitment to offer code compliant products,” said the association’s President Bill Courtney.

SFIA manufacturing members that participate in ICC’s quality inspection process and file with ICC-ES will be able to list their facilities in the report and mark their products with the report number.

SFIA manufacturing members will be added to the report on a continual basis as “Additional Listees.” The current version of the Evaluation Report can be found
