On the updated publications, David Borland, GGF Senior Technical Officer said, “This upload to the website includes ten new datasheets and one necessary update to an existing datasheet. All of these changes and additions have been requested through various GGF Technical Groups and Regional meetings. Given the limited timeframe we had to make these changes, it would not have been possible without the assistance and input received from the Members of the GGF Home Improvement Technical Group for which we are extremely grateful.”
