Composite Siding Products Receive Approval for Type V Building Construction

Chelsea Building Products has announced that all Everlast advanced composite siding products have been approved for Type V buildings (A and B) and for use on all construction types permitted under the IRC (International Residential Code) and FBC-R (Florida Building Code, Residential), as reported in sections 6.2.2. and 6.2.3. of Intertek’s Code Compliance Research Report (CCRR-0201).

The approved products are Everlast Lap Siding (both 6-7/8- and 4-1/2-inch profiles) and the Everlast Board & Batten vertical siding.

For a structure to be deemed Type V-A, it must have 1-hour fire-rated exterior walls, and Everlast siding is now approved for use on these construction types.

There are two groups within Type V. Type V-A structures have protected wood frames (no visible or exposed wood), which is common for new apartment buildings. Type V-B structures feature unprotected wood frames, most often single-family homes and garages.

Everlast siding may be used on both Type V-approved construction types and installed on the exterior of fire-resistant walls, increasing its number of approved applications.

Everlast siding consists of a composite substrate made from a composition of inorganic minerals and polymer resins. The substrate is then fused molecularly to a color-tinted acrylic capstock and embossed with a cedar grain finish. Everlast siding will not rot or delaminate and features a warranty that protects against fading, peeling, flaking, cracking, rusting, blistering, and corroding.
