Policarb® Multi-wall Polycarbonate Sheets and arcoPlus® Multi-wall Polycarbonate Modular
Panels manufactured by Gallina received an evaluation report ESR-1760 from ICC Evaluation
Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that the Policarb® Multi-wall Polycarbonate Sheets and
arcoPlus® Multi-wall Polycarbonate Modular Panels meets code requirements. Building officials,
architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize the ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to
provide a basis for using or approving Policarb® Multi-wall Polycarbonate Sheets and arcoPlus®
Multi-wall Polycarbonate Modular Panels in construction projects following the International
Building and Residential Codes, and Uniform Building Code.
ICC-ES President John Nosse explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important.
“Gallina can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building
industry that the product meets I-Code requirements,” Nosse said. “Building departments have a
long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource for the
building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local
ICC-ES thoroughly examined Gallina product information, test reports, calculations, quality
control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code compliant. Amit Israeli, CEO
Gallina, has this to say regarding the ICC approval: “I am very pleased with our approval with the
ICC. We try to promote the building code department requirements. We hope that other
manufacturers see the value of having an ICC approved product.”
ICC-ES is the United States’ leading source of technical information on building products and
building technology for code compliance. A nonprofit, public-benefit corporation, ICC-ES performs
technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials. The evaluation
process culminates with the issuance of reports on compliance with the major U.S. building codes,
which are available at www.icc-es.org.
ICC-ES is a subsidiary of the International Code Council, a membership association dedicated
to building safety and fire prevention that develops the codes used to construct residential and
commercial buildings, including homes and schools. Most U.S. cities, counties and states that
adopt codes choose the International Codes developed by the International Code Council.
