New Insulating Glass Certification Program Announced

July 12, 2010

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association now offers insulating glass certification

As of July 1, 2010, The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) began enforcing the requirement for insulation glass (IG) certification by a listed, third-party certification program for all insulation glass units used in products that are authorized for NFRC certification and labeled in accordance with the NFRC 700, “Product Certification Program (PCP).”

Accessibility to these IG certification programs has been broadened, thanks the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and Associated Labs, Inc. (ALI), which have joined forces to offer IG certification.

“The success of the largest North American whole product certification program combines with ALI’s well-established IG certification program,” says Rich Walker, AAMA president and CEO. “This relationship brings together two powerhouses of fenestration expertise – ALI with decades of IG certification experience and AAMA with decades of fenestration product certification and standards setting experience.”

In order to receive NFRC certification, manufacturers will be required to use certified insulating glass units from an approved, ANSI accredited certification, such as ALI.
