The insulating division of the Glass Association of North America
(GANA) has announced the addition of Jim Benney, executive director
of the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), to the Glass
Week 2005 schedule. Benney will address the insulating division
on Monday, February 7 at 8 a.m. on the NFRC's move into non-residential
product and component certification. He will field questions regarding
the potential impact of new certification efforts.
"During our 2004 Fall Conference, insulating division members
discussed the current NFRC activities and a number of questions
were raised about the details of how their new certification efforts
will impact glass fabricators and insulating glass component suppliers,"
said Greg Carney, GANA technical director. "We are pleased
that Mr. Benney has accepted our invitation to update our members
and to discuss the issues in person."
