Kawneer Co. Inc. of Norcross, Ga., has received certification for five new Miami-Dade Notices of Acceptance (NOA) and three new Florida Product Approvals (FPA - rule 9B-72 for statewide Approval) for three products.

Product descriptions and the NOA and FPA documents are as follows:

  • The company's 7225/8225TL Isolock® heavy commercial windows, with the option for thermally broken (8225TL) and non-thermally broken (7225) systems, passed the large and small missile tests and were approved as FL 6206, NOA 05-0725.06 and NOA 05-0725.07.

  • Designed for high-performance use in condominiums, lofts, apartments and hotels, the 2000T terrace doors passed the large missile test and were approved as FL 6210 and NOA 04-0120.04.

  • The 1600 Wall System®1 is a stick fabricated, pressure-glazed curtainwall for low- to mid-rise applications. The unit is designed to be used independently or as an integrated system. It has passed the large and small missile tests, and been approved as FL 5388, NOA 06-0320.19 and NOA 06-0320.20.

Miami-Dade County enforces the strictest test protocols in the country for wind-borne debris, air and water tests. According to information from Kawneer, the Miami-Dade County NOA for impact-resistant products is the best way to be sure that a product has been tested and meets all the requirements for hurricane protection in the high velocity hurricane zone. The Florida Building Commission recognizes Miami-Dade NOAs as approved products.

These product approvals certify that Kawneer's 7225/8225TL Isolock® Windows, 2000T Terrace Doors and 1600 Wall System® 1 passed the rigorous testing standards established by the county, including testing for air and water leakage, structural pressure, forced entry and impact resistance.
