NFRC to Celebrate 20th Anniversary

October 30, 2009

The National Fenestration Rating Council plans to celebrate its 20th anniversary this year with special events, including live music and other surprises, at its upcoming fall membership meeting. The meeting takes place November 16-19 at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel in San Antonio, Texas.

"Since its creation in 1989, the NFRC has become the recognized leader for independent and credible rating and certification programs for fenestration product energy performance," says Jim Benney, NFRC's executive director. "NFRC is excited to be celebrating its anniversary with members and staff in San Antonio."

NFRC's rating and certification system has expanded over the years to include both residential and commercial applications, as well as glazing products and window films. Today, the NFRC Certified Products Directory contains energy performance information for more than 1.67 million fenestration products listed by close to 800 manufacturers, the organization reports.

NFRC members will convene in San Antonio to debate and move forward important issues relating to the energy ratings of the fenestration industry, with 26 ballots up for membership review and comment. Other highlights include a presentation by Anita Ledbetter, executive director Build San Antonio Green.

More information on the meeting is available on the NFRC Web site.
