ICC-ES AC390 – Acceptance Criteria for Wall Panels with a Welded Steel Perimeter Frame Used in Agricultural Storage Structures


ICC-ES AC390 outlines the acceptance criteria for evaluating wall panels with a welded steel perimeter frame specifically designed for use in agricultural storage structures. The criteria cover various aspects of product performance, including:

  • Structural performance: evaluates the panel’s ability to withstand loads and stresses, such as wind, snow, and seismic forces, in agricultural storage applications.
  • Durability: assesses the panel’s resistance to environmental factors specific to agricultural settings, including moisture, temperature fluctuations, chemical exposure, and potential impact from livestock or equipment.
  • Fire resistance: evaluates the panel’s fire performance in accordance with relevant building codes and standards.
  • Compatibility: ensures the panel is compatible with other building materials and systems commonly used in agricultural storage structures.
  • Installation: provides guidelines for the proper installation and use of the wall panels in agricultural storage applications.

The purpose of AC390 is to provide a standardized framework for evaluating these wall panels, ensuring they meet the minimum requirements for safety, structural integrity, and durability in the unique environment of agricultural storage structures.
