Important Fire Safety Information: When rigid vinyl siding is exposed to significant heat or flame, the vinyl will soften, sag, melt or burn, and may thereby expose material underneath. Care must be exercised when selecting underlayment materials because many underlayment materials are made from organic materials that are combustible. You should ascertain the fire properties of underlayment materials prior to installation. All materials should be installed in accordance with local, state and federal Building Code and fire regulations.
Wind Load Testing: CertainTeed Hamilton Park siding has been tested per ASTM D 5206 standard test method for resistance to negative wind load pressures of 48 psf, which equates to more than 164 mph, when installed with nails, positioned 16" on center.
