IGMA Certification Program Administration

The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) has entered into an agreement with Keystone Certifications Inc. through which Keystone will provide administration services for IGMA's certification program for ASTM E 2190. According to IGMA's announcement, the addition of Keystone Certifications Inc. will broaden its certification program offerings to industry segments that have not been typically reached.

"IGMA is pleased that with the addition of Keystone Certifications Inc., insulating glass manufacturers who have not had access to the IGMA program as part of a testing and certification bundle will now be able to certify to the IGMA certification program," said Margaret Webb, IGMA executive director. "IGMA promotes the certification of insulating glass, and full adherence to a certification program has demonstrated unit longevity and durability in the field. This has been substantiated by the recent completion of the IGMA 25 Year Field Correlation Study, which concluded that IG units certified to the most stringent level of certification demonstrated a failure rate of 3.6 percent at the 25 year mark."

"Keystone Certifications Inc. is pleased to now offer the complete suite of certification services to the fenestration manufacturer with the addition of the IGMA certification program," said Jon Hill, vice president of Keystone Certifications. "We believe consumer demand for ever-widening fenestration performance, from energy efficiency to hurricane impact resistance, enhances the value and necessity of IG certification in today's marketplace."

The Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC) continues to provide program administration for the IGMA certification program in addition to Keystone Certifications Inc.
