Importance of energy metering and setting benchmarks for better buildings
EXP is pleased to announce that its roof testing laboratory in Drummondville has been certified by UL, a global safety science company, to perform tests in accordance with CSA A123.21, a “standard test method for the dynamic wind uplift resistance of membrane-roofing systems.” With this certification, our lab becomes the first laboratory in Canada to be a member of UL’s Data Acceptance Program (DAP) for this test.
As a member, the team continues to advance safety standards and invest in methods to secure for construction materials and roofing assembly to respond effectively to elements. Certified labs must display qualifications of physical resources, equipment, and qualified personnel required to conduct testing, equivalent to that used in UL’s laboratories. EXP met this requirement and is now a key partner in the process leading to certification for roofing systems.
