Miami-Dade County NOA
The State of Florida, U.S. requires building envelope components and systems to have either a state or local product approval for demonstrating resistance to structural wind loads, while NOA is specifically for the HVHZ and includes approval of impact resistance. It is known by its stringent code and approval criteria. If the marketing plans includes HVHZ zone in U.S, NOA is more recognized by building officials, design professionals and contractors. In addition most insurance companies are inclined to give more favorable rates for NOA products, and this is an ever-increasing financial issue that building owners are considering in construction decision-making.
HyCOMB’s honeycomb panels are approved by Miami Dade County for use as external cladding in High-Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ). Executed NOA #15-0415.07 Miami- Dade County, Florida; August 20, 2020. The NOA certificate and test results can be viewed in full on the Miami-dade website.
