BA

Bridge Products with an Architectural Finish
These products are the same as those in Group B, but they are produced with an architectural finish. They will have a form, machine, or special finish. Certification for Group BA production supersedes Group B in the same category.

CA

Commercial Products with an Architectural Finish
These products are the same as those in the categories within Group C, but they are produced with an architectural finish. They will have a form, machine, or special finish. Certification for Group CA production supersedes Group C in the same category.

GFRC
Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Products
These architectural products are made by spraying cement/sand slurry reinforced with glass fiber into molds. The products are custom designed and contribute to a structure's architectural expression through their finish, shape, color, or texture. The range of products is similar to those non-loadbearing units in category A1.
