Lundall Sees Need for Fenestration Energy Performance Ratings in South Africa

Posted By Tom Herron, National Fenestration Rating Council, Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Denise Lundall addressed the membership today, citing the need for improved attention on fenestration ratings in South Africa.

“Fenestration is not yet mature, but we’re collaborating with several organizations, including NFRC to make improvements.” Lundall said.

Lundall, from the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI), pointed out three areas with room for advancement. These include the following:

Providing fair, accurate, and credible energy performance ratings for fenestration products.

  • Administering an independent, third party certification and labeling program.
  • Creating a certified product directory with energy performance information for fenestration products.
  • Lundall added that the primary concern in South Africa’s hot climate is keeping homes and buildings cool.

“We need to take everything into account when creating a better building envelope. We’re after a harmonious rating system and regulations to create a holistic program,” Lundall concluded. “NFRC is assisting with what needs to happen.”
