Code compliance opinion

It is the opinion of the Canadian Construction Materials Centre that the evaluated product, when used as an exterior cladding for buildings of combustible construction in accordance with the conditions and limitations stated in this evaluation, complies with the following code:

National Building Code of Canada 2015

Code provision Solution type
9.27.12. Vinyl SidingAlternative
9.27.2. Required Protection from PrecipitationAcceptable
9.27.3. Second Plane of ProtectionAcceptable

The above opinion is based on the evaluation by the CCMC of technical evidence provided by the evaluation holder, and is bound by the stated conditions and limitations. For the benefit of the user, a summary of the technical information that forms the basis of this evaluation has been included.

  Product information

Product name


Product description

The products are made of heavy-gauge polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and coated with a PVC film (RENOLIT) designed for exterior applications.

The profiles are tongue and groove and fastened to the building structure through pre-punched nailing slots located along the top edge of the profiles, which are concealed after the upper profile is installed. The products are available in a 150-mm channeled groove profile and a 150-mm V-groove profile. The products are 3 660 mm or 5 790 mm in length. 

All accessories are made of aluminum covered with a PVC film (RENOLIT).

Manufacturing plants

This evaluation is valid only for products produced at the following plants:

  • Vagos, Portugal

  Conditions and limitations

The CCMC’s compliance opinion is bound by this product being used in accordance with the conditions and limitations set out below.

  • The products are limited to use as exterior cladding for the buildings falling within the scope of Part 9, Housing and Small Buildings, of Division B of the NBC 2015.
  • The siding panels must be installed on furring providing a second plane of protection that consists of a continuous, clear, uninterrupted vented air space of 10 mm outboard of the sheathing membrane.
  • The furring must be installed over the sheathing membrane.
  • The system requires flashing at appropriate locations in order to drain water to the outside.
  • Furring for the attachment of the cladding must not be less than 19 mm × 38 mm, securely nailed to the sheathing or framing, and spaced not more than 600 mm on centre (o.c.).
  • The products shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s current installation instructions:
    • “Sagiwall Installation Guidelines” November 1, 2020, Version 1.1
  • If there is any discrepancy between the Conditions and Limitation of this Evaluation Report and the proponent’s installation instructions, the Conditions and Limitations of the Report supersede.
  • The product must be clearly identified with the phrase “CCMC 14043-R” on its packaging.

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. The NRC accepts no responsibility whatsoever arising in any way from any and all use and reliance on the information contained in this evaluation with respect to its compliance to the referenced code(s) and standard(s).
