When it comes to finding the best international stone manufacturer, few companies can compare to Stone Panels, Inc. Our extensive list of achieved certifications sets us apart, especially the Miami-Dade County’s issuance of Notice of Acceptance.
Notice of Acceptance (NOA) is an approval issued by the Building Code Compliance Office of Miami-Dade, Florida. The NOA ensures products are manufactured and installed to certain test standards. StoneLite® Panels was issued the Miami-Dade County Notice of Acceptance for Exterior Use on unlimited height construction. TAS 201 Large and Small Missile Test Standards, TAS 202 Uniform Structural Load Standards and TAS 203 Uniform Cyclic Pressure Test Standards are the Test Standards required for a Miami-Dade Product Approval. A product with a NOA is approved for use in Miami-Dade and Broward counties if it meets the requirements of these test standards.
Our exceptional, lightweight panels withstood the rigorous testing process conducted by Miami-Dade County approved laboratories. Once tests are completed, the test report must be signed and sealed by a Florida Licensed Engineer. The NOA is issued under the applicable rules and regulations governing the use of construction materials. The documentation submitted for NOA is reviewed by Miami-Dade County Product Control Division and accepted by the Board of Rules and Appeals (BORA) to be used in Miami-Dade County.
At any given time, the Miami-Dade County Product Control Division and/or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) have the right to test products following a NOA for quality assurance purposes. If requirements are not met, the NOA may be revoked immediately.
Stone Panels, Inc. has never failed to meet testing requirements and continues to provide products with the NOA seal of approval.
