FLORIDA BUILDING AUTHORITY APPROVES VBUCK FOR STATEWIDE USE
LOGAN, UT October 8, 2004 – The
Florida Building Authority has approved the application
submitted by Vinyl Technologies Inc. for statewide use of the
VBUCK vinyl block-out system for homes built with insulating
concrete forms (ICF).
“We are very excited for ICF contractors in Florida. With this
approval, the process of getting the VBUCK system approved for
Florida building code has been greatly simplified,” stated
Justin Anderson, President of Vinyl Technologies. “Before the
VBUCK approval, the steps that contractors had to take to use
the VBUCK system were quite an undertaking. Now, all they have
to do is specify VBUCK into the home plans.”
The approval comes as great news to Florida ICF contractors. The
VBUCK system allows contractors to avoid all of the hassle of
using wooden block-outs. VBUCK is a clean, lightweight,
time-saving alternative for window and door block-outs. All
window and door shapes and sizes can be pre-manufactured and
easily installed at the jobsite by just one person.
In order for Vinyl Technologies Inc. to gain approval from the
Florida Building Authority an evaluation from a Florida
registered evaluation entity was submitted along with using
Florida approved materials and meet the Florida requirements for
quality assurance and load tests.
Insulating concrete form homes are an ever-increasing choice of
homebuilders. By using VBUCK block-outs, homeowners avoid
insects, mold and other problems associated with wood.
“ICFs are the next generation of high-quality, energy-efficient
homes. It only makes sense for a 21st century home to have 21st
century window and door block-outs. ICF builders across the
nation have realized the ease and laborsaving benefits of the
VBUCK block-out system. Now, thanks to the Florida Building
Authority, the VBUCK system is easier than ever to include in a
new home,” added Bruce Anderson, General Manager, of Vinyl
The VBUCK vinyl block-out system is available for ICF homes by
