Hoover has five treating facilities, located to service a stocking distributor network that covers the United States and Canada. Hoover’s quality control procedures are reviewed and inspected by Underwriters Laboratories and Timber Products Inspection’s follow-up services. Pyro-Guard® and Exterior Fire-X® lumber and plywood for interior and weather-exposed applications have a flamespread rating of 25 or less. Both are labeled and UL-listed, and tested in accordance with the International Building Code and NFPA 703.
