Florida Product Approval: Enhanced Protection Against the Elements

At Metallic Products, we are proud to provide the accessories companies need to improve metal building airflow, enhance safety and protect against the elements. With the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season’s arrival on June 1, we felt it important to let our friends and clients know that certain Metallic Products items — those with Florida product approval — are engineered specifically to meet stringent hurricane building codes.

Our Florida approved products are enhanced versions of our standard line, and are rated for use in areas prone to high winds and extreme weather. Obtaining approval was no small feat. Working alongside a range of outside testing facilities, evaluators and validators, we submitted products to tests analyzing wind uplift, large missile impact and other extreme weather factors.

Twelve products obtained approval from the Florida Building Commission, but our work isn’t over yet. As part of an ongoing quality assurance program, Metallic Products undergoes annual audits of our manufacturing processes and quality assurance manual. It’s all part of an effort to make sure the products we’re putting out there are of the highest possible quality.

For additional information about these enhanced products, visit our Florida approved products webpage. Information is also available through our individual product spec sheets:
