Ceilume, manufacturers of decorative ceiling tiles made from a specially formulated vinyl plastic, proudly announces that they have received ICC-ES recognition (ESR# 2451) from ICC Evaluation Services (ICC-ES), confirming that Ceilume tiles meet the 2006 and 2009 IBC (International Building Code) requirements.
Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others construction entities utilize the ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for specifying, approving, or installing products in construction projects following the International Building Code.
ICC-ES thoroughly examined Ceilume’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code compliant. Both the Feather-Light and Signature ceiling tiles, which are available in 32 decorative styles and five colors, received ICC-ES recognition. In addition to being code compliant, Ceilume’s vinyl ceiling tiles are GreenGuard certified for indoor air quality, Class “A” Fire Rated and 100% locally recyclable. Because of the lightweight, vinyl design, the tiles are also easy to install, easy to clean and cost effective ($1 - $4 per square foot), are unaffected by water or moisture and do not harbor any smells, mold or bacteria.
ICC-ES President Mark Johnson explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “Ceilume can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements,” Johnson said. “Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency.”
“The coveted ICC-ES recognition gives our ceiling tiles much deserved credibility within the industry and official acknowledgement of our unique vinyl design,” said Ed Davis, president of Ceilume. “Our customers can shop with confidence knowing that Ceilume’s products are not only affordable, easy to install and beautiful, but also safe and building code compliant.”
