Florida Product Approval
The state of Florida has dictated that in order to build or construct in the state you must use products that have been approved for that particular means of construction. In order for a product to obtain Florida Product Approval it must pass a series of tests to insure the harsh elements will not affect the quality of the particular product. Some of the tests for Florida Product Approval include a wind driven rain test as well as impact testing.

CANADIAN WELDING CERTIFICATION
Rigid Global Buildings continues to keep and maintain certification to CSA A660. The CSA-A660 Standard was developed at the request of the Canadian Steel Building System manufacturers to assist code enforcement officials in reviewing building permit submissions incorporating a steel building system, and to help purchasers in obtaining a quality building.
The A660 Standard requires that the manufacturer’s production facilities, staff, and quality assurance systems are capable of consistently producing quality steel buildings. To ensure that these design and production standards are met and maintained, the A660 Standard requires a manufacturing facility to be certified by a certification agency, such as the Canadian Welding Bureau. In turn, the manufacturer provides a Certificate of Design and Manufacturing Conformance signed and sealed by a licensed Professional Engineer for each building and specific location. The certificate lists key design criteria for review by the code enforcement official, the Engineer of Record for the building and the owner.
