As of January 2008, the new 2007 California Building Code (CBC) came into effect. For products to be used in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), every product must comply with rigorous standards to ensure adequate levels of performance.
In an effort to provide the home owners, industries, designers, local fire and building officials a list of “compliance WUI products”, the State Fire Marshal published the “WUI Products Handbook”. All products published in this handbook have been reviewed and their compliance verified in accordance with the new 2007 CBC by SFM staff. All products published in this book are “approved” by the SFM. They are not “Listed” unless a SFM Listing number is attached.
