Certifications and Code Approvals

Many Marco metal roofing products undergo stringent testing to ensure our high quality and performance standards are met. In addition, Marco submits a variety of products for various certifications and code approvals. Examples include:

Python: Our 11 ¾” Python material has undergone the testing requirements to become a Miami-Dade certified product. These tests include a Wind Driven Rain test, TAS100 (A), in which Python passed with no leakage. The following small-scale fire tests were conducted on Python and met requirements for a Dade-approved product; ASTM D 2843 Smoke Density, ASTM D 1929 Self Ignition Temperature, ASTM D 635 Rate of Burn.

Python ridge vent is also in the process of becoming an ICC (International Code Council) certified product. ICC requires that products undergo the same tests for product certification as Dade, but is also reviewed by codes of BOCA (Building Department Operations Audit), ICBO (International Conference of Building Officials), and SBCCI (Southern Building Code Congress International).

Flex-O-Vent: Our original Flex-O-Vent ventilation product has passed several tests including: ASTM D 1929 Self Ignition Temperature and ASTM D 737 Air Permeability.
