March 29, 2010

The National fenestration Ratings Council (NFRC) announced that WESTLab, an NFRC-accredited simulation laboratory, has recently fulfilled all of the requirements for becoming an Independent Approved Calculation Entity (ACE) Organization.

NFRC says WESTLab is its first independent ACE organization, and it joins EFCO, which has been approved as the first manufacturer ACE organization.

According to the announcement, ACE organizations have been established within NFRC’s new Component Modeling Approach (CMA) Program as the firms who use the CMA software tool to construct virtual fenestration products and issue label certificates to prove compliance with the building code requirements for fenestration energy-related performance.
