Technical Information

Supreme 30EQD is Certified

The Supreme Steel Framing System Association (SSFSA) sponsors a third-party certification program that requires products to be continually audited to ensure consistent quality and compliance to IBC, ASTM C645, and ASTM C955 codes. All inspections and testing for the SSFSA are provided by Architectural Testing, Inc.

Products must be tested twice a year on unannounced visits where the steel will be chemically stripped and tested for coating weight and bare metal thicknesses, and the dimensional properties of the studs will be measured. Members of the SSFSA must satisfy the requirements each time they are audited in order to earn certification.

All certified Supreme Steel is labeled on each member or bundle to show that it is third-party certified. This third-party certification label guarantees to the contractor and owner that materials are high quality and code compliant.
