WESTLab Becomes First Independent ACE

WESTLab, a long-time NFRC-accredited simulation laboratory, has recently fulfilled all of the requirements for becoming an Independent Approved Calculation Entity (ACE) Organization.

WESTLab is now the first independent ACE organization, and it joins EFCO, which has been approved as the first Manufacturer ACE organization.

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