AAMA Meeting Continues with Committees Hard at Work

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association continued its annual meeting on Monday and Tuesday of this week with important speakers and committee meetings.

On Monday, AAMA's Southeast region board met and discussed the Masonry Installation Standard Practice which it is working on with the Fenestration Manufacturers Association (FMA). SE president Bill Emley reported that AAMA has an agreement with FMA to have a combined FMA/AAMA document that will go to the floor of the Florida building code commission but clarified that the document will not have an organization's name on it.

On the fiberglass side, the fiberglass coatings review committee task group reported that there have been revisions on two standards: high performing and superior performing coatings. Jeff Miller of Comfort Line reported that the ballot was successful with a number of editorial comments. Additionally, the fiberglass door sill task group agreed to develop a new 300 standard in regard to door sills.

At Tuesday's meetings, a member of the hardware committee made a motion to start a single-sided door trim set specification; and create a new task group to reference to a multi point lock system which was approved.

In meetings of the glass materials council, AFG's Fred Wallin reported that the sloped glazing task group has been working for three years to update the sloped glazing brochure and is now making progress, and finally has an electronic version. Additionally, the marketing council is looking at a communication plan to talk about AAMA labeling to trade and code officials.
