NTA understands that fasteners are a crucial part of design, especially in extreme climate areas such as hurricane or earthquake zones. In any design however, their strength can often determine the viability of a project.
The International Residential Code, as well as International Building Code, specifies the requirements for the types of fasteners that can be used in either treated or non-treated wood construction. Whether you are concerned about bending strength, corrosion, resistance or shear, NTA can provide the certification necessary to show the code compliance of your product.
NTA has a nationally recognized test lab, which is accredited by the IAS (International Accreditation Service), that performs a variety of fastener testing to certify code compliance.
The NTA fastener certification program includes:
Our lab conducts tests according to several ASTM methods:
