Mission Possible: Celebrating 30 Years of Fenestration and Opening Doors for the Future

Change is inevitable, yet many membership organizations are reluctant to embrace it, afraid to take risks. After 30 years, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is doing just that. We are kickstarting our Mission Possible campaign to commemorate our long history of advancing energy efficient windows, doors and skylights nationwide through our ratings and certification programs.

Since 1989, we’ve been the science behind the Energy Star label. The NFRC label itself has helped customers make informed purchases based on our rigorous tests and standards to measure energy efficiency. Fast forward to 2019 and there have been several milestones, including creating our commercial ratings program and the FenStar Certification Label. And we’re just getting started.

At our recent Membership Meeting, we unveiled NFRC’s new mission and vision that reaffirm our commitment to the fair, accurate and credible ratings of windows, doors and skylights, but with a twist. Our ratings will always be at the forefront. However, we realize that green buildings need energy-efficient fenestration products for the health benefits to the buildings’ occupants, and to save money and reduce energy consumption. Energy-efficiency is a priority for us and we want to educate the public about environmental responsibility, empower architects and building designers to create more comfortable spaces and enrich the wellness of those who choose NFRC-certified products.

Over the years, our members have been the driving force behind our success. They are the real value to the organization and their passion for energy reliance performance is felt at every meeting. Our members inspire us to continue innovating and advancing energy-efficiency in fenestration products.

As part of the Mission Possible campaign, we’re asking members to send us stories of how their business has grown, improved or transformed in the last 30 years and how NFRC has positively influenced this progress. We will share these stories on our community site to be published in 2019. Have a story to share?
