Stat-X condensed aerosol fire suppression generators, manufactured by Fireaway, recently received an evaluation report (ESR# 3230) from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that the U.L.-listed electrically operated Stat-X condensed aerosol fire suppression fixed system generators meets code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers, and others use ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving Stat-X condensed aerosol generators in construction projects under the International Fire Code.
ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “Fireaway can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements. Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource with the highest quality of product review for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency.”
ICC-ES thoroughly examined Fireaway’s product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant. “We are pleased that our ICC-ES evaluation report for our U.L.-listed electrically operated Stat-X fire suppression fixed system generators has been published. We feel it will help our U.S.-based distributors gain system installation approval from authorities having jurisdiction in states that have adopted IFC based fire codes that do not include NFPA 2010 as a standard and in turn condensed aerosol fire suppression systems as approved systems in their fire codes.” Chris Gendron, technical and quality specialist, Fireaway.
