Page 2 of 3 documents shall be competent and qualified in the application of the structural design principles involved, and shall possess the registration or license in accor- dance with the professional registration laws of the state in which the project is constructed. 3.3 Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns have not been evaluated for decay resistance. The ability of this product to resist decay is outside the scope of this report. 3.4 Design loads shall be determined using Chapter 16 of BOCA ® National Building Code/1999. The columns have been evaluated for gravity loads only. Other loads, such as lateral loads, applied in shear to the column are outside the scope of this evaluation report. 3.5 Loads for a given column length shall not exceed the allowable design loads given in Table 1of this report. 3.5 The maximum amount of eccentricity for an axial applied load is limited to the values shown in Table 1 of this report. Eccentricities larger than this are outside the scope of this report. 3.7 Installations of Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns, which will be directly exposed to the weather, shall receive an additional coat of paint, enamel or other approved protective coatings. 3.8 The Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns shall be limited to use with buildings of Type 5 construction which do not exceed three stories or 40 feet in height. 3.9 Special Inspections of the structural column installa- tion shall be provided for columns used other than in Use Group R-3 buildings. The inspections shall be conducted by a special inspector provided by the owner of the building under construction. The special inspector shall be qualified to perform the inspections and approved by the code official. The inspections shall be of a nature, and conducted at such fre- quency, as is necessary to ensure the Poly-Classic ® FRP Columns compliance with the requirements of Code Section 1705.1.2 of the BOCA ® National Build- ing Code/1999. 3.10 This report is subject to periodic re-examination.
