Our cladding products are designed for a variety of applications.We have experience in hotel buildings, shop centers, multifamily apartment complexes, airports, residential or small commercial retail buildings.
Among the many challenges faced by building designers — on top of creating new and unique building designs — is fire code compliance.
Builders and homeowners have to consider many factors: construction type(s), fire separation distances, required hourly ratings, sheathings, air and water barriers, interior finishes, exterior finishes, ever-evolving energy codes and more.
Building product manufacturers can make things easier by fully vetting product offerings and transparently offering performance data on product testing, so finding the right manufacturer is key. We at EXO know our products best, and we are completely transparent about the testing standards our products meet to ensure the utmost safety. We realize one of the last things any building owner wants to worry about is the high heat tolerance of their fiber cement siding, which is why we strive to provide our customers with peace of mind.
The challenge with fire resistance and fire safety is all the codes and standards that need to be met. When it comes to the International Building Code (IBC) that pertains to exterior wall claddings and interior wall coverings, there are three standards that provide the most useful data about how building products respond to fire and can help architects design with confidence: ASTM E 84, ASTM E 119 and NFPA 285.
