AAMA's Wood & Composite Council Launches Newsletter
SCHAUMBURG, IL -- A newsletter dedicated to those who manufacture
and specify fenestration products made of wood or wood plastic composites
(WPCs) has been launched by the Wood and Cellulosic Composite Material
"As a relatively new group, the WCCMC must develop the infrastructure
needed to advance performance standards for wood and cellulosic
composite fenestration products, and the newsletter is a key communications
tool to accomplish this," noted Bob Simon of Gossen Corporation,
who is the first vice president and marketing chairman for the WCCMC,
a material council of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association
"Our council is charged by AAMA with setting performance standards
and specifications for an increasing number of fenestration products
which utilize wood and WPC materials," explained Simon. "The newsletter
serves as a platform for presenting the advantages of these materials
now being utilized in door and window design, and as a forum for
explaining proposed changes to standards," he added.
The newsletter's inaugural issue includes a feature article, "The
Green Building Initiative™ Offers Commercial Rating System," as
well as other articles covering green building opportunities for
WPCs; a recap of the three recent AAMA standards already in place
for wood composite materials used in fenestration systems; and a
summary of WCCMC past activities and marketing plans.
Manufacturers of wood and wood plastic composite products who are
not members of AAMA are encouraged to join the council in order
to participate in the development of future certification standards
for WPC products.
