Perma-Column has announced its Sturdi-Wall® and Sturdi-Wall® Plus brackets for post-frame construction have been certified by the International Code Council (ICC) as complying with international building codes. Certification from ICC enables builders to more quickly attain necessary project approvals and permits.
Heavy-duty Sturdi-Wall and Sturdi-Wall Plus brackets connect post-frame structures to traditional concrete foundations such as monolithic slabs, formed walls, and existing concrete pads. They can be paired with foundations already poured (Sturdi-Wall) or while concrete is still wet (Sturdi-Wall Plus).
“This certification confirms we offer the best post-frame bracket in the industry,” said Mark A. Stover, Perma-Column President. “Obtaining an ICC certificate of compliance is not easy. It was two years of hard work requiring significant investments in time, money, people, and resources. This is the best way to ensure the quality of our products and shows our commitment to leading the industry. Builders can work with the assurance that Perma-Column products meet national and international code requirements while consumers can feel more confident in their post-frame investment.”
Perma-Column said that with the certification of Sturdi-Wall, all of the company’s post-frame and deck construction products have achieved ICC approval. “We have the only patented, ICC-approved foundation systems in the post-frame industry,” Stover said. FBN
