ELKHART, IND. -- ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) has issued PMG-1098 to NIBCO for its Press System. This ICC-ES PMG Listing allows code officials to quickly determine the press system’s compliance to specific codes and standards. The press copper and copper alloy fittings are used in service and distribution piping for hot and cold domestic water, potable drinking and cooking water, condenser and chilled water, and hot water heating.

“With this listing, NIBCO shows their products’ compliance to numerous industry-recognized codes and standards,” said ICC-ES PMG Senior Program Manager, Dawn La Fleur-Qualley. “We are pleased NIBCO chose ICC-ES PMG for their product certification needs.”
