Insulfoam Obtains a Dade County NOA Approval for Roof Applications

Insulfoam recently became the first and only manufacturer of EPS (expanded polystyrene) insulation to receive a Notice of Acceptance (NOA) from Miami-Dade County for its Type IX roof insulations, including InsulFoam IX, R-Tech, InsulFoam SP, Tapered InsulFoam, InsulVent and InsulLam in High Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ). While other EPS manufacturers have NOA's from Miami-Dade County for their insulation products, they are only approved, to this point, for use within a building's interior.

With the NOA, Insulfoam's insulation products can now be used on rooftops throughout Florida in both coastal, High Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ) and areas with less wind-related weather.

Building components used in Miami-Dade County, including roofing systems, require approval through the issuance of a Notice of Acceptance (NOA) from the Building Code Compliance Office. Insulfoam's Miami-Dade County, Florida NOA is 07-0809.01 (exp. date 9-13-2012) and its State of Florida approval is FL 9316.

In order to obtain its Florida and Miami-Dade County product approvals, Insulfoam's EPS insulation had to meet specific requirements at an approved, independent testing laboratory. The rigorous testing process simulated the high-velocity, hurricane weather conditions along the coast of Florida.
