Quebec City, Canada—Derby Building Products’ Beach House Shake has received a Notice of Acceptance (NOA No. 18-0716.05) from Miami-Dade County. Undergoing rigorous testing for small and large missile impact resistance, burn rates, uniform static air pressure, and cyclic wind pressure loading, Miami-Dade County has listed Beach House Shake as compliant and capable of withstanding the severe weather conditions experienced throughout Florida, including its High-Velocity Hurricane Zone.
Miami-Dade County’s standards for the High-Velocity Hurricane Zone are recognized as being among the most stringent in the United States, Derby Building Products says. The NOA for Beach House Shake certifies that the product has successfully met all rigorous testing criteria. To inform the market of the NOA, Beach House Shake units will carry a permanent label noting the acceptance by Miami-Dade County.
“The acceptance from Miami-Dade County speaks to Beach House Shake’s resilience and durability when faced with high-velocity coastal winds,” said Ralph Bruno, Derby’s CEO. “In addition to this new NOA, Beach House Shake is impervious to moisture making it ideal for both coastal regions and inland projects as well.”
