Our extensive catalog of products includes a complete lineup of the 2011 National Electrical Code products, as well as:
Large umbrella codes such as the National Electric Code standardize the various aspects of electrical construction. With today's complex construction technologies, building codes must be updated constantly. For example, NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), through its Standards Council, has issued the NEC 2011 edition of the National Electric Code® (NEC®). The new edition includes significant changes to the NEC 2008 edition.
Building codes and standards regulate the design, construction and maintenance of the built environment. They protect the health, safety and general welfare of a building's users.
In most areas of the US, construction is regulated by the need to comply with locally or regionally adopted building codes and standards. These codes govern how and what you can build. The US has a diverse set of code organizations and building codes that are adopted and enforced in different ways in different places.
To meet this diversity, we specialize in building codes books and products for the ICC, ICBO, and the SBCCI model codes, the National Electrical Codes, and the various standards referenced in the codes.
