Flexmade entered 2019 with good news. After a long period of testing, it is now official: our structural panels are in accordance with Florida’s state Building Code and authorized to be used in constructions on US territory.
“This achievement is yet another proof of the quality, durability and strength of our structural panels, besides expanding our possibilities in modular solutions”, said Flexmade CEO Herick Pereira.
The tests carried out at PRI’s laboratory, the world’s leading company on evaluating building materials, were approved by Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), proving once again the endurance of Flexmade structural panels, especially facing hurricanes with high wind speed, one of the most feared weather phenomena in the region.
In addition to achieving another international certification, of number FL 28403, Flexmade is currently one of the only companies authorized to operate in the eight bioclimatic zones of Brazil, without interference of weather or temperature, being able to stay in the open without suffering from dryness or any damage caused by rain.
It’s a trend!
Since Hurricane Katrina hit the state of Louisiana in 2005, entirely destroying important cities in the United States, such as New Orleans, a group of engineers in Florida began to work on the development of technologies that would allow the building of anti-hurricane homes. Following the same ideas, Florida’s Building Code has also encouraged building systems that are resistant to these natural phenomena.
