Product description

The wall siding panels and corners are made of injection-molded, press-formed polypropylene and are fastened to the building structure with corrosion-resistant fasteners every 200 mm (8 in.) through pre-punched nailing slots located along the top edge of the panel, which are concealed once the upper panel is installed. The products and associated profiles evaluated under CCMC 13429-R are shown in Table 1. The products have a nail hem wall thicknesses between of 2.0 mm and 2.3 mm.

Figure 1 and Figure 2 illustrate TandoStone® Stacked Stone and Beach House Shake®  as an example of the profiles, respectively.

Administrative information


This evaluation is issued by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre (CCMC), a part of the Construction Research Centre at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The evaluation must be read in the context of the entire CCMC Registry of Product Assessments and the legislated applicable building code in effect.

The CCMC was established in 1988 on behalf of the applicable regulator (i.e., the provinces and territories) to ensure—through assessment—conformity of alternative and acceptable solutions to regional building codes as determined by the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) as part of the issuance of a building permit.

It is the responsibility of the local AHJs, design professionals, and specifiers to confirm that the evaluation is current and has not been withdrawn or superseded by a later issue. Please refer to the website or contact:

The NRC has evaluated the material, product, system or service described herein only for those characteristics stated herein. The information and opinions in this evaluation are directed to those who have the appropriate degree of experience to use and apply its contents (i.e., AHJs, design professionals and specifiers). This evaluation is only valid when the product is installed in strict compliance with the stated conditions and limitations of evaluation and the applicable local building code. In circumstances where no applicable local building permit is issued and that no confirmation of compliance ‘for use in the intended field application’ is undertaken, this evaluation is null and void in all respects. This evaluation is provided without representation, warranty, or guarantee of any kind, expressed, or implied, and the NRC provides no endorsement for any evaluated material, product, system or service described herein.
