Benney Discusses Value of NFRC's Commercial Ratings During GANA Meeting

Posted By Tom Herron, NFRC, Monday, March 17, 2014

The National Fenestration Rating Council’s (NFRC) CEO, Jim Benney, spoke about the importance of commercial fenestration code compliance during the Glass Association of North America’s (GANA) Technical Committee on March 16.

Addressing an audience of 38 committee members and guests at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Benney explained how NFRC’s commercial ratings program works and pointed out its value to the industry.

“You want to know you’re meeting code and getting credit for high-performance windows,” Benney told the group. “Our CMAST software tool allows you to do that.”

Benney added that the tool also drives competition, creates independence, and adds credibility because it provides third-party certification. He also encouraged manufacturers to bring their ideas for refinements to NFRC meetings.

“Many people think it’s the transportation industry that uses the most energy,” Benney concluded. “But it’s actually buildings that use the most, and that's what makes this program so important.”
